    All you guys talking about drag setups, remember that brakes in the rear are monsters, 14.5" rotors plus the caliper. 17" fatties in the rear aren't going to work without a brake swap.

    My plans is to paint correct, ceramic coat, and clear bra mine immediately to help keeping the black paint looking good. Probably tint the windows while I have that done as well. Then throw it up on my dynojet and see what kind of numbers it lays down in bone stock form. After that I will probably drive it around and enjoy bone stock for a while. At a later date, I might tune it for some higher octane, possibly E85, and maybe even change up the pulley on the charger...but time will tell on that.

    re: bold

    Then why even bother with a GT500? I don't mean that in any sort of argumentative way, just seems like a strange path to buy a GT500 then mod it away from its original design intent.

    rears are smaller or same size as gt350. which you can fit 17s on with control arm swap, or 15s with a brake kit

    Thanks, I did see Shine Techs when I did my search, was just trying to avoid an hour of highway driving if I could. I wish reading wasnt a sh*t hole and had a good place right here.

    I personally have had no work done that but got two buddies that had their challengers done they were happy and looks good. Might be a little closer to you. No webpage just Facebook

    For the 5.2 with the DCT. Not saying I’m doing that, just saying it’s the other options. I personally would rarely use the car what it’s intended for just like 90% of the owners. I would be using mainly for drag.

    For me, I'm enclosed trailering it immediately from the dealership to have ceramic coat + as much clear bra as possible. My 2015, then 2017 chipped to hell with less than 2,000 miles. Paint protection is priority #1 for me. I'll prolly tint the windows 20% + a fat windshield strip. I hope to just drive it after that, but with what I did to my two last builds I already know how that's gonna go lol.
