I love my magnaflow on my Lsx swap. Nice and quiet at idle but great sound in throttle with zero drone. The exhaust note never gets old

If you do want to ditch the wheels, let me know a price.
Or if you want to keep them, I've got an idea that might make them look amazing.

Nice work! Do you have adjustables on front or did you find a stiffer stock sized spring?

I have short strut coil overs. And honestly I like the wheels, because cost effective. I paid 700 bucks for 6 wheels, 2 Mt et streets and 4 extreme contacts, all new. I'm okay with the basicbitch look for the price

Too bad about last night. At least we made short work of pulling the engine out for the replacement.

Quick question: Are those the steelies that summit racing and jegs sells? I have one of them sitting in my garage left-over from my aborted 142 project. If so, I may complete the set and they may make an appearance on my 242. :D

Messed with it a bit today, the dump pipe for the wastegate is done. Also I installed the Amazon racing catch can. Mostly just to keep the vapors down and so the car doesn't stink inside when driven. I have the catch can routed to the front of the airfilter. Should work great




Also I got a super nice aem boost referenced meth kit for the car. Hopefully I will have that finished tomorrow. Then time to drive the pig!

Did you have to trim the fender lips in the rear for the tires?

My Charger steelies are 17x7, ET22 and they're interfering pretty badly, due to the wider rear end. I noticed that the Summit steelies are 17x7 ET38. I already have a driveshaft made, so I can't really shorten my lower trailing arms. So now I am looking for higher offset wheels. These would help me gain 16mm of clearance, but I'm just looking to see if you can share any insight to their fitment.

I cut the lip in my last 242, this one I rented a roller and it worked flawlessly, I'd do that again over trimming any day. Look in my projects thread there's a few pictures but it allowed me to fit 9" wide bbs lm with room to spare

Did you use the same Crager steelies with an 8.8 rear end?

Got the meth nozzle installed and I had a odd issue with the uncapped injectors, I had number 4 short and it effectively killed the whole bank intermittently. Luckily I had a bunch of gift cards with Amazon so I sprung for a set of deka 80s and the car runs much better
