    Moved the shifter to the "viper" location. Already modified a stock viper shifter for a shorter throw. Just have to get in car to see where to cut off excess length of shaft coming out of shifter base. Then attach the pistol grip bracket to the shaft with a roll pin.

      Also, the S-I-L is working on the viper/chally. He is home for the week. Some serious mods to the hood. :) 20181002_172714.jpg 20181002_172733.jpg

        Aftermarket version of the TR-6060. TUET11009. Rated @ 700 lb-ft torque capacity.
        Ratios are 2.66 1.78 1.30 1.00 .80 .63 (first gear, and fourth, is same as A-833)
        Magnum 6-Speed Rear-Wheel Drive Manual Transmission

        I had to move the console back about an inch to get everything to line up. With my seat where I like it the shifter ball sits in my palm with my arm at my side in a "neutral" position, ergonomically perfect.

          I am able to do some things in keeping the Cuda moving forward.
          Repaired the "bag" part of the 13 Challenger. No longer a bag in there as the Cuda will not have bags. Going to use this wheel and column. Tilt and telescoping. Prolly gonna try and use dash also. I want the phone syncing quality of the radio.
          20181015_090823.jpg
          The 6.1 is all back together with the trans from the 13 Chally mounted with dual disc clutch. Got the pedals and everything from the chally donor. Complete wire harness also along with front and rear seats. Need to have the pass seat sewn back up as the bag blew in that one.
          20181015_090838.jpg
          Also going to use the electric power steering from the donor car so I had to shorten the idler base from the 13 5.7 to fit the 6.1. The 5.7 '13 car had all the accessories a 1/2" further from the timing cover. Bolts on where the power steering pump goes.
          20181015_090901.jpg
          See.....… some progress. :)

                  No turbo or Procharger. I'll have to take some pics today of development with Challenger.

                  BTW, collecting goodies for the Frankencuda. :)

                  And 2 new members of the family. They arrived about the 5th of may, we had 8. The brown one is Dexter, a male. The black one is Stella, a female. Labs. Still pups. We were only going to keep Dexter as a replacement when our Golden mix "retired". Axle is 11. The person who claimed Stella found out he could not have pets where he lived and by that time I couldn't part with her. lol They are both awesome. :)

                    I don't think I ever said I was gonna use a Viper engine in that build. Bad memory. lol Besides, I have complete Vipers I play with all the time including my own. :)
                    Altho, I do have another viper frame waiting for a donor car, e body or 71-up b body. :)

                    Came across an issue with the 6060 from the '13 Challenger. No easy way to change the tail shaft of the trans for a slip yoke. So,,,,have to go to this style off the trans end to a regular yoke for U-joints.
                    20181114_110526.jpg
                    Here is the slip section of the '13 Challenger DS.
                    20181114_110455.jpg
                    I want to get the slip section as close to the trans as I can so the "in and out" action is the least amount possible in the rear diffs travel. So I have to shorten this section as far as I can.
                    20181114_112434.jpg
                    The splined section comes with a hanger bearing I will have to make a mount for. The "rear" section I cut the end off the tube so I can turn a sleeve to fit inside the DS tube and also slide in a trans yoke with the same size U-joints as the rear diff has. Then get the whole thing balanced.
                    Trans end:

                    NEVERMIND!!!!!!!!!! LOL That layout won't work. The carrier is on the wrong side of the U-joint. So, going a little different direction. Out with carrier and solid mount to trans output, then U-joint, then to slip joint, then to diff.

                    Busy with life and all the customers...…………. I get to do a little on the Cuda once and a while but mot much. Frustrating.

                    And, have not heard from John...…. Tried couple times to get ahold of him, nothing.
