    Smart man.

    Any plans to throw a cat back exhaust on there to bring out a deeper exhaust note?

    Nice!!!

    Prior to the Challenger SRT8, there were only two SRT vehicles that had manual transmissions: the little SRT4 and the Big SRT10 Viper. I've owned an SRT4 (fun.. cheap) and couldn't justify a Viper. Used to drive me nuts... seeing their lineup.

    Enjoy and cherish your mid-life crisis...

    Did they decide to throw a manual in the challenger?

    Yeah, 2010 was the first year for the 6 speed manual (which I bought). It's amazing, the thing is geared really low (3.92 in the rear) and just grunts like you wouldn't believe.

    I did have a Viper back in 1996, fun car but not at all practical back in those days. The new ones are far more refined than the earlier ones.

    I have a Borla cat-back exhaust on order and a Vortech supercharger. I have to take the car to a specialty shop about 2 hours from my home to have the Vortech installed when it gets here. It will probably be 30 days or so before I get around to having that installed since I'll have to take a day or two off work while I wait with my car for the install and tune. The Vortech will add about 140hp which will bring the car up to around 560hp.

    It should prove to be a fun summer car. :)

    Huh...I would have thought you'd have gone with hair plugs instead.

    Awesome. I was hoping you weren't going to be one of those "it's already good enough" guys.
    I'm a huge fan of Borla and have used them on just about every vehicle I have ever owned.
    I just looked up the Vortech system and it looks awesome. I couldn't mind taking a SRT-8 with that under the hood, for a test romp.
    Forced Induction is a drug.

    Man.. that's a nice supercharger. If it were me, I'd install it myself and enlist the local shop for assistance for a tune on the dyno. Then put the cash towards strengthening and bracing the rear end.. maybe upgrade the brakes. Curious, do you know if the SRT8 comes with an ECU that can take new fuel maps or reprogram? Past cars I worked on, fueling them (and keeping them street legal) has always been a royal PITA at least around here in NJ.

    Did you modify your previous SRT-4? Did you ever visit Srtforums?
    I only ask because I also owned a SRT-4.
