    Here are a few pictures of the vintage air I am installing on my car.Well I can’t get the pics to load.

    Finally got the car tuned on a chassis dyno this past weekend.Max power was 414hp and 462 max torque to the ground.Considering the motor is all stock i’m not complaining with those numbers!Tried to load a video but i guess it was too long.

    I’ve been working on trying to get the exhaust out the back of the car.Got the windshield put in and going this week to get the frontend lined up.I did take it for a short ride today for the first time.To be a stock engine it has quite a bit of power and it’s still running the 5.7 tune in the computer.I think all the headaches are going to be worth it in the end!

      No i ended up having a friend that installs for a living.He could supply the glass and install it cheaper than i could buy the glass.

    Just looked up your build....usually modern motors do not look right in older cars, but this build looks like its coming together quite nicely. I'm an old school guy both with my cars and motorcycles, but I really like my wife's 2016 Scatpack 392 Challenger. I can see why you want to use that powerplant, considering the horsepower! Kudos.....

      Thank you.I have always been old school but figured I would do something different this time.Hope to be driving it in a few months

    Ok I gotta ask what are you into the car for ? I know it’s like asking a girl how much she weighs ...... but it is a beautiful build
    1. 69Dartguy
      Well i quit adding up dollars when i build a car.All of the work has been done by me and a friend shot the paint for me.Most of my money is in the motor and transmission which i gave 9800 for and the hemi Denny front end.The car i bought really cheap.I still feel like i can sell it for quite a bit more than i have in it because i am not paying someone for labor.I figure i will have close to 30k when I’m done

    Got a few more things done over the past few weeks.Coil overs,exhaust ran to the rearend for now and assembled the rearend.

    Where'd you get the wiring harness for the engine ?
    1. 69Dartguy
      It’s a Hotwire harness.Using a 5.7 computer and you either have to use a Diablo tuner or get someone to put a tune in it for 6.4 engine.

      Thanks Mark,Haven’t got a lot done over the last month.Christmas shopping always slows the projects down.Maybe i can get it finished in a few months

      It's starting to cost a lot like Christmas. That song will be playing in your head tonight. A couple of months huh, you wouldn't be driving it here in a couple of months. haha
      It does look really nice though and the stripe sets it off nicely.
