The original Magnum Intake Manifold was actually destoryed prior to finding the R/T in the Junkyard. Bottom half was shattered. (I'm kicking myself for not taking the upper half to make another box-style intake manifold though.)

Also, hopefully I have the BBS rims on for the All-Chrysler Nationals meet. Finger's crossed, I have a lot of other little things to get finished before the show, so I'm not 100% sure if I'll have the extra money to mount/balance. We'll see...

Dude, that engine bay looks immaculate! Keep up the great work. I almost bought those BBS wheels but went with the slipstreams instead. I love the design. Probably shoulda yanked that R/t muffler while you were there and thrown it on. Would you still have access to those side skirts btw?

Yeah, but I don't think I'd trust my local Wal-Mart not to scratch the hell out of the rims... & yeah I miss the "Open-Header" sound sometimes, but for everyday driving the Exhaust was finished about 3 weeks ago.

Well if you come to All-Chrysler Nationals, you can at least see it in person. :-)

Thank you, seriously. It's been a non-stop project since May 2008. Still more to come...

Thanks for the comment, It's about 80% of how I want it to look but it all takes time. & for the side-skirts I can def. look into it next time I'm at the JY, the front-bumper was also something I wouldn't of minded taking, but apparently who ever had this R/T decided a "fiberglass" bumper was better. (As you can see it disappeared in the crash.)

Nice. :thumbup:

I like everything but the projectors/hids (I've never been a fan of that kind of stuff)... and the SRT wheels. But the BBS wheels will solve that very nicley. :D

The HID conversion was more of a "great price" sort of deal, and decided what the hell sure... and yes the BBS rims will def clean the car up from the overly popular SRT rims. (Plus I've been using SRT rims for over 3 years, I'm ready to move on.)

Maybe I'll look into it, and just make my presence known... :lol:

I'm not going to lie, stock SOHC vs. this setup is night and day. I mean it's no turbo car, but it def has a nice feel. :-)
