For those who don't have Facebook, here she is freshly tinted.  Next step is to save up some for a Corsa Xtreme cat-back as this stock system is whisper quiet & I don't like it!!

Hey bro, why a cat back, we have all been there and done that. I'm going to do 2 Borla mufflers ($175 each) with 2 exhaust tips, and have Twisted Pipes do 2.5" from the X pipe all the way back to exhaust tips. Will net you the same gains and sound at half the price. Only thing is the 2.5" pipe wont be stainless, so totally up to you

Well I did that on the Chally before I went with the SLP. I wasn't happy with the drone when MDS kicks in & the sounds wasn't all that great. I've always loved the way the Corsa sounded, but it was never really in the range I could afford. I told myself that if I got another ride I would just get the Corsa because that is what I always wanted. Let me know if you get yours done before me & you might be able to change my mind, but i'd need a ride along to see what it sounds like!

Gonna be about a month before I do it. The sub and amp I bought was with money slated for my mufflers, lol. But I can guarantee drone with the set up I'm doing because I'm eliminating resos. The drone don't bother me like it does to others, lol.

True, I mean I had SLP loudmouth on my first charger with no resos so I know how the worst drone can be, but i've also considered getting a tune from Johan and just disabling MDS all together like I did on the Chally, my gas mileage sucks anyways because I drive like a dick so that doesn't really matter to me!

Cant get a tune unless you buy a new unlocked PCM with whatever tuning device you choose. Figure about $1000 just to be able to get a tune, lol.

i am in the same boat for my truck so i probably won't tune it. at least not for a long time. honestly i don't care too much about a tune itself, but having a 107mph top speed nanny is bothering me. (not that i plan to drive over that often in a truck, i just don't like that the limiter is there and that low.)

I'm going to eventually bite the bullet. I have a shit ton of overtime coming up next 6-8 weeks, more so in May. So I should have the dough end of May I'm thinking. Probably going to just buy the PCM and have AD Motorsportz tune it with HP Tuners software. No tuning device needed, so I will save $400-$500.

So basically we can't run predator tunes anymore? Man i'm outta loop on this shit lol. does it make sense to just get that stage one then since it comes with a PCM? The Corsa sport isn't quite to my liking as far as sound goes though.

To answer your question, yes but requires a PCM that is unlocked. Those are $599 thru Diablo. From what I have heard, even doing the Scat stage 1 still does no good as the PCM is still locked.

Here is what your looking at going thru Diablo. Only other option is buy the PCM from Diablo for $599 then have AD Motorsportz tune it with HP Tuners software. Think they charge like $450 to tune it with HP. I'm pretty positive that's how Tim Barth was tuning the Hellcat

I'll try to hold out for that. only because i think i want to drop this thing and get it to handle a little better first. drop spindles for the front, springs and qa1 adjustable shocks for the rear, and some sway bars should do it. i still need to save for thitek heads and a tune for the charger too. after all that, maybe tune the truck.

Stay away from the QA1 shocks bro. Nothing but trouble on the Jeep SRT's. Your lucky if you can get 2 years out of them. Most start leaking after a year. Just my .02

Maybe not. Under the guise of safety and now, thanks to Volkswagen, emissions. car makers want to make it tougher. Of course it's really about profits. So while now you have to spend money on a unlocked PCM, my guess is that in the future, they'll find ways to make you give them even more money.

I'm willing to bet on it. Only a matter of time, where there's a will there's a way.
Too much money to be made

Here you go bro! I was by myself so all I have is a cold start and idle. No drone what so ever and super raspy which I like. I'll try to get some of me getting on it shortly because it sounds wicked under load!!
