UIH,

I have been lurking around here you years. I have an 04 BLK RC #1880 which has kind of been collecting dust in the garage for many years. I purchased/stole the truck with 8500 miles in February of 05 for 35K. I was not really in the market but my DD 03 Hemi had an issue, and when I went to pick it up from the stealer after repair, I saw the SRT-10 in the show room and took it home a couple days later. My DD is still the 03 Hemi RC with 150k and running strong.

After years of thought, many Dogfish Heads, Sam's and other brews, I have finally come up with a plan.

I have decided to go more towards the auto cross or handling style of performance. Lowering, brakes and shocks, some minor engine performance enhancements such as long tubes with cats and SS from there to the back, throttle body, CAI, shifter and some other minor improvements along the way, but you get the idea.

I think Tony at JTS may be one of my new best friend if this keeps up.

I have the JTS 2/3 Ultra Extreme lowering kit with all the bushings and modded sway bar links from JMB. I installed the JTS Gen II shifter which is a real piece of art and just today, installed the K&N CAI. I had planned to install the lowering kit this past Thursday at my friends service station which has 3 lifts however, a little storm called Sandy got in the way.

Exhaust will come next followed by brakes and shocks.

Here are a couple pics of the CAI install.

Very true and thanks for the welcome,

Dang, that was my first post. Actually, I do have a Hemi.

Girlfriend has been lumping me up for several year because I always talk about it but have yet to schit and get off the pot. I think she has plans when I am not around. I will have to keep an eye on her.

4.88 gears are a must. 4.56's at the very least. Tony can hook you up.

Thanks guys,

4.88 , I will just jot that down right here on this list. I am not sure of the stock gearing but will assume the 4.88 is a much taller ratio.

Of course I had to make a beer run after I finished the install. Felt crisp for the short drive, a slight different sound when I jumped on it. The install was pretty straight forward as well. As you can see from the pics, it look pretty cool as well.

Butch

your truck should have 4.10's. 6th gesr is a slug!! The 05/06's have 4.56 gears. The 4.88 is lower yet for stop light too stop light fun!
