Default A few questions

I've only had my Daytona for a short time now and want to do a thorough service as its been a bit neglected. I've been told that 5-20w oil isn't essential but what is the best oil to use?
Also is it a timing chain on the hemi or a belt?
What is the maximum towing weight and what is the maximum weight I can put in the bed? Its got a firestone air bad system fitted if that makes any difference to the cargo weight.
I'd also like to upgrade the lights but haven't found any options yet. can any body recommend anything?
Any other modifications worth doing? I've got an AEM brute force intake but thats it.
thank
Mike

They have a chain, you won't find too many (if any) cam-in-block motors with a belt. For the daytona, you don't have the MDS, so you don't have to use the 5W-20, but it's recommended. I know people who use 0W-20, with no issues. If you're asking the TYPE of oil, then join the debate.

How would you like to upgrade the lights? New assemblies, bulbs, HIDs? There are lots of options.

As for other mods, the list is long, and only based on your pocketbook and common sense. If you're like me, one's bigger than the other The daytona already has 4.10 gears and a borla exhaust, so no need to upgrade those
