    Not a bad quarantine day when you have 2 SRT10 trucks at home. My buddy drop off his 04 SRT10 RC for some maintenance and mods. He just got it so he wanted me to go through it, it’s an 04 RC with 83k miles. The thing I don’t like is he mentioned it has had 10 previous owners. He had the t56 rebuilt already and the front end suspension(lower ball joints, upper control arm/ball joints, endlinks, and sway bar bushings from what I seen. Replaced valve cover gaskets(washed/cleaned foam and inside of the valve covers), replaced throttle body gasket(cleaned tb), replaced the Ngk spark plugs with good ole Champions , replaced hood lifts supports(stocks were done, had to used vise grips to hold the hood up) wires were good for now(previous owners had Taylor wires with zip ties), removed center seat stock subwoofer amp(he has an aftermarket system and doesn’t use the amp) for more storage space, added a Taylor throttle body spacer, and a Grant products steering wheel. Below are some pictures.

    Cleaned up real nice!
    That's the second post (other on Facebook) about someone with a TB spacer. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought those were more of a gimmick?

    FYI if you need to source parts, X2 builders are the way to go Scott is pretty helpful locating difficult to find Ram SRT10 parts.

    i see it as more a personal preference, your going to get both opinions. Some say butt dyno approves, some say don’t waste your time and send them the money. I’ve seen some dynos and they do pick up a few hps (I’ve seen from 1-5hp). Some don’t pick up any. Just really depends on personal preference, dyno, and engine. Some engines don’t like tb spacers too. That’s just my opinion though.

    lol, pretty good friend. Just in parts price is $462.98, not including anti seize, dielectric grease, degreaser, wd40, brakes parts cleaner, and my labor. But for sure way cheaper than any shop or dealership.

    I emailed them once, never heard back from them. So I never tired them again, I’m big on customer service and they failed me that time. To me(my opinion) their prices are really expensive, I get it they don’t make the trucks anymore. But man those prices!
