Number 4 cylinder burned a piston so the motor was taken to Mountain High
Performance in Arvada Colorado. Mountain high is a respected shop and Bill, the
owner, has built Cummins motors that have powered trucks to 9 second quarter
mile passes. The cylinder head was gone through, and all cracked were repaired.
The head was given a big valve conversion to increase flow. New seats were
also installed, with 1.340 oversized valves. All guides were repaired as needed,
and the head was decked to .008. Some light porting/polishing was also
The block was boiled, and cleaned, and the burned cylinder was sleeved, and
everything was bored to .040 over. Each cylinder was honed to fit each piston,
and they were numbered in order so they were all fitted to their respective
cylinders. All bearings were also replaced.
The engine was balanced, and the crank, cam, drive gears, push rods, connecting
rods, pistons, rings, main bearings, oil pump, and sleeve were all cryogenically
treated to increase the harness of the material. Freeze plugs were also threaded
to prevent them from popping. ARP 425 head studs and main studs were used. Cam
shaft is a Hamilton 188 cam, with their valve springs, and HD push rods. The
connecting rods used were new 12 valve rods that were shot peened and cryo
The machine work alone ran a discounted cost of 8,608, which would have easily
been over 10,000 had I not worked in the same industry and dealt with the shop
on a day to day basis.

Labor was all done myself, but would cost someone somewhere around 4000 for all
of this.
What it would cost you to build this truck, not including the truck,
approximately, $36,549.54, and that is with heavily discounted machine work.
This truck, by itself, with only 34K miles, would fetch somewhere around $30,000
is my guess. That is $66,549 if you had to go out and do all this yourself!!!
This is a heck of a deal.
Truck has not been dynoed, on its old setup with stock head and cam it made
730 rear wheel horsepower on fuel and 918HP on nitrous on bulldog tuning. The
best previous time, it has not been ran since, was a 11.2@124mph. This is a easy
10 second truck now.
As I said I am the original owner of this truck. It was purchased while I was
a senior in high school, and I love it. Sadly I am relocating to California and
need to afford some expensive real estate. Truck really needs nothing but a new
Truck does not have a bumper in the pictures, it will have a painted to match
roll pan on by the time the auction ends, done by a reputable shop. Really the
only issue with the truck is a few small rock chips along the very lower rockers
from a dirt road, and a very slight scratch on the front right fender. Interior
isnt perfect, but it looks pretty darn good for 10 years old. For the past
three years I have worked at one of the largest diesel performance shops in the
area, this truck is done right

Chrysler recalls 350k vehicles over ignition switches

Thu, 25 Sep 2014

Chrysler has announced a recall covering 349,442 vehicles due to ignition switches that can either become stuck or move without warning. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2008 model year, and were built before May 12, 2008.
The automaker has learned that ignition keys on some vehicles "may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position during engine-startup," the company said in a statement. Additionally, "an ignition key may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position and may inadvertently move through the 'ON' position to 'ACCESSORY' or 'OFF.'"
Chrysler says it is unaware of any related injuries, and notes that while reduced braking, engine or steering power is possible in such instances, the airbags are not affected. The later stands in contrast to General Motors' recent rash of high-profile recalls, and it's an important distinction that Chrysler (understandably) felt necessary to call out in bold print in its press release.

Has Dodge stepped in it again with Scat Pack lawsuit?

Mon, 20 Oct 2014

Lawsuits are an unfortunate part of doing business in just about any industry, so the latest complaint filed by a California-based aftermarket firm against Chrysler would seem to be nothing more than business as usual. But this isn't the first time the two companies have sparred over this particular issue.
According to a report from Automotive News, the dispute revolves around the Scat Pack name that Chrysler first offered on the Charger, Coronet, Dart and Super Bee starting in 1968. Scat Enterprises, a manufacturer of crankshafts and other components for Dodges and other vehicles, sued Chrysler for using its name. A few years later the Scat Pack disappeared from the Dodge catalog.
Fast forward to August 2013 when Chrysler applied to register the Scat Pack name anew. The US Patent and Trademark Office turned down Chrysler's application, but the automaker proceeded anyway, unveiling new Scat Packs for the Challenger, Charger and Dart at last year's SEMA show.

Dodge celebrates big B-day with 100th Anniversary Editions muscle cars

Wed, 20 Nov 2013

Being in business for 100 years is a HUGE milestone, so we hope Dodge has more in mind to celebrate its centennial than just a special edition package for the 2014 Charger and Challenger. Called the 100th Anniversary Edition package, this collection of cosmetic enhancements will be available in limited quantities for both cars at a cost of $2,500.
Ordering a Charger or Challenger with the 100th Anniversary Edition package means starting with either a V6-powered SXT Plus or V8-powered R/T Plus model. They can each be ordered in many colors, but only the High-Octane Red Pearl Coat above is an anniversary exclusive. Each car also comes with an anniversary-exclusive set of 20-inch, five-spoke wheels with what Dodge calls "Granite Crystal pockets," a texture that's also mirrored on each car's grille.
Of course, there are commemorative badges galore affixed to the exterior of each car, including "Dodge Est. 1914" fender badges and "100" logos on the center caps of each wheel. The styling theme of each car's interior is a bit more interesting, with Dodge designers trying to evoke "the patina and machinist legacy of John and Horace Dodge," the company's founders. To that end, the leather interior can be had in Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa, and each features a custom cloud overprint that makes the hide look like a working man's dirty dungarees. Designers also used brass-colored accent stitching on the interior's leather trim pieces, and affixed more "Dodge Est. 1914" badges to the front seat backs and floor mats. We do like the flat-bottomed steering wheel, and the Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition gets exclusive white gauges faces and the Charger black. The "100" on each car's speedometer is also highlighted in red.
