Headers and exhaust

By GoMango2606

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

swapped the stock headers and exhaust for aftermarket. Cherry bomb vortech after cat exhaust and hedman street headers. great power improvement! Also getting about 3 miles more per gallon.

Did the work in the garage, exhaust was easy, headers are a pain in my exhaust!

About two months befor signing in to Motortopia. I Ran across a guy with a nice all black SRT-8 Charger (6.1 ltr Hemi, 425 horses and 0-60 in 5.2 seconds) at a friends place of employeement. He works graves so after B.S.ing arund about the cars he says he wanted to see the difference between the SRT-8 and the 5.7 or "little Hemi" as he called it. Well so did I.

So we found a nice 200 yard stretch on the private property there in Phoenix and decided to run a couple hundred yard dashes. THats a short drag first to the 100 yard marker wins.

So the first run I made 78 miles per hour in under 100 yards and had him by 3/4 of a car length. Similar on the second run after he asked how I worked the pedals and tech tronic trani.

Next we swapped, he drove mine and I drove his, This time my car with him driving beat his with me driving by 1/2 a car length.

Every time the Daytona was pulling away from the SRT-8. Just a few simple modifications and I'm putting away the 425 horse srt-8. Not to bad.

So he wanted

160+

Late night driving back from a business trip to L.A. I decided to see what Marilynn had in her. I ramped her up slowly until I had the speed o' pegged at 160 mph, I was running about 4800 rpm's, I gradually creeped it up to 5600 rpm's leaving me with about a grand more befor I got too close to the red line.

Guys at the garage reckon thats about 170, guessing top speed of 180 or so with current modifications and enough time to get there.
