    I am installing belanger headers with cats deleted and magnaflow exhaust right now. Fit is fine but why in the world did they reduce these 3 inch pipes to 2.5 inch then go back to 3 inch at the joint just before the muffler. That will need to be removed ASAP.

    Yeah I have some on my computer that's as far as I have got.
    They won't go on here and the link to the video on FB doesn't work either ...something about not having permission. Damn where's a 5 year old when you need them, they would have it sorted in 10 seconds
    The sound is magic with dumps open
    Still real good out the tail pipes, not at all girlie

    Outstanding!!!! She sounds vicious, I really like the cutouts. Where is the switch in the cab located to activate them?

    The switch is on the bottom of the dash above accell..acel....axcel...gas pedal. out of sight and no cutting holes in dash. Yes for a large old man it is not easy to reach when on the road, but it's fine. It is next to a button for the electric cargo bed hard lid openers

    Sounds like that's where I'll put mine then, thanks for the tip. I have to say, the craziest thing about your truck, is seeing the shifter to the left of you and the steering wheel on the r/h side of the truck. Whoever did the mod, did an outstanding job, including the dashboard, etc. Must have cost a fortune to do it, or did they actually make a few SRT's that way. It's possible that the original owner ordered it from Dodge that way.

    Been an industry for 30-40 years now. Some very nice work and a few not so.
    A new Silverado or similar $180k trademe.co.nz there are plenty there. That's our go to, to buy and sell here in NZ
    To have a right hand drive SRT10 is just magic...not much more cost than having a conversion done $20-30k
    A long time ago I had a 82 GMC Sierra Classic 6.2 Diesel short bed That had been converted and I loved that.
    Anyway my 10 was sold new in TX and looks like did probably 5000 miles then was shipped to NZ in '04 and converted here. At some stage I shall track it's local history.
    We have a serious amount of American classic cars, muscle cars, trucks, hot rods etc. People here love them.
    Have some massive shows
    Beach Hop at Whangamata (fong a ma ta )
    Americana in New Plymouth
    Kumeu (Coo me ew ) Classic Car and Hot Rod Show
    to name a few. Check them out on line
    I had a photo somewhere of the first Kumeu show 1996? and there was a line up of 13 '59 Caddies how cool is that for a small country at the bottom of the world

    There is a lot more to conversions that most people realise. The wipers need to work the other way, the headlights need to dip left not right, steering, brakes, shifter, park brake, wiring loom extensions. There is a lot of thought and planning and working things out to do a conversion. Then after it is done it needs to be certified by an engineer and tested. I am well pleased with this conversion

    This is a conversion. The SRT10 was only sold in the USA and exported to Canada.
    Like you said though AMS3 outstanding job as a lot of work went into the conversion.
    Sweet truck Kiwi!

    Thanks
    Considering how rare they are I have seen 4 for sale here in NZ in the last year
    and there is another 3 on trademe at the moment
    2 RHD and one left hooker as we call them. Whoever buys that will have to wait til 2025 (20 years old) to keep it left hook or convert to RHD to put it on the road here. After 20 years it becomes a classic and that's ok

    So I googled the events you mentioned, there are some sexy rides there. Are you going to take the truck to one of them this year? Boy, it sure would be a blast to fly down to the Beach Hop for the days listed. Just a heck of a long way to fly.

    Zoom Zoom.
    I have a Fuel Miser Tune (90) which has dropped my fuel wastage by at least 2L/100km 3mpg.
    Today I ran my Go Faster Program (93) oh boy what a barrel full of monkeys and still cleaner burning than the stock set up. Dodge must have had shares in BP or ...maybe Sinclair lol the jolly green dinosaur. Pretty much 10mpg on that one. Pedal pressure is the real issue hahaha...that's what it is for.
