I think they're taking a page from nascar's car of tomorrow. Make all the cars look the same and slap a different nameplate on them. Before long that will be the only way to tell the difference between the dodge models, is to read the nameplate.
Dodge is taking this "signature look" crap too far.

torque is what breaks rods, with higher rpms, you should be more worried about valve float. Rod bolts will be under alot of stress at sustained high rpms. It's not just the magical torque number he has to worry about. What do you have for a clutch? I would be concerned about it coming apart at thos...

I'll try and explain it better. If you take off your TPS, you'll notice that there is a circle part of the sensor that rotates. This circle part has two trinangular tabs. The triangular tabs make contact with the metal shaft protruding from the throttle body. I inserted the plastic piece on the top...

Why wouldn't it bolt up? Difference is in the port size not the bolt pattern. So you would have some port mismatch, but it should bolt up. I'm assuming they had to be talking about the turbo manifold. How are people with non-mags using the stock mag headers? I ran my R/T all last summer with stock i...

The "Theroy" is, low comp high boost > high comp less boost. Now is that how it works in real life? Beats me, I've never tested it. I never even read any actual dyno test in mags about it either. I've seen engines built both ways that are equally as fast. Is it worth the hassle of a tear down and lo...

The pistons will work but they will yeild a little more compression about 9.0:1.
The 5 angle valve job would be good if the shop knows which angles work best for our heads. Otherwise I would save the extra money and just go with a 3 angle.

.020 over bore means it's .020 bigger than stock. So no it wont fit without boring the block. Same thing with valves if they are oversize, then the seats will need to be cut to match the valve size.

I put my front plate back on towards the end of last summer. I was tired of worrying if I was going to get stopped every time I passed a cop. Although usually if they stop you for something like that they're just fishing to see if they can get you for something else.

The 4th number seems to be normal. The others are low. When I checked mine before the rebuild it was 180ish.
The oil mist is a sign of blow by. With the low compression numbers you got, I would say your rings are shot.

I have a 68 Coronet R/T. I want to repaint it and convert it to disc brakes. Been kicking around putting some nitrous to it and moving the springs in for some bigger rubber.
Once those things are done I'm sure I'll want to add/change something else, it'll never be done.

Bottom line is the Steelers made plays when they needed them and the Seahawks dropped the ball or didn't make an effort to catch the ball inbounds. Overall I didn't think it was a very well played game by either team, but it wasn't decided by the refs.

It will be a little cheaper and you will have the SRT-4 aftermarket at your disposal. And you'll have all that k...

Belt throwing is usually caused by bent or missed aligned pulleys which may or may not be the fault of the pulley. Depending if it was made or installed correctly.
I haven't experienced any problems with belt throwing.
