PostSubject: 15 Charger RT Build Thread   January 17th 2016, 12:28 am

I'm sure you guys are sick and tired of seeing build threads for me. But here goes another, as of now and take this with a grain of salt. This build will purely be minor cosmetic shit as my Regal is still going to be my Street Beast.. So with that said, I have parts ordered and will continue to order parts prior to Cinco. My goal is to have a semi modded, respectful ride by then. So here are my plans in no particular order, but hope to have them all done by Cinco.

SP/SRT factory hood/Ordered and on back order
Rear valance/ordered and should have by Monday (eliminating dumb ass fake exhaust tips in favor of real 4" tips) ordered and received
Exhaust/Spintech mufflers, and 4" tips ordered, might do the X pipe as well. But plan is to install the mufflers right after the X Pipe and run 2.5" all the way back to the tips, no resos. (loud as fuck)
Mopar stage 1 lowering springs/will order when the funds allow/ordered and received
R1 slotted rotors/will order when the funds allow
G2 Caliper paint/will order when the funds allow
Rims/will order when the funds allow. More than likely going with a concave 5 star, brushed finish with B5 Blue highlights. Want to do 22 x 10.5 all the way around, but if I have to roll and pull front fenders then I scrapping that idea and going 22 x 9 up front and 22 x 10.5 in rear. Still working and talking with some wheel builders to see if I can get the correct offset (+9-+10) to run 22 x 10.5 up front and only have to roll fenders, and not pull them.

Well this week I caught some killer deals and bought shit not on my list. But I can't pass up a deal, lol.
On LX found a guy with Mopar SRT pedals for $50, then found another guy with Mopar 392 half covers already modded to fit the RT for $125. Lastly found a guy with a practically brand new Mopar CAI for $225. Tonight at our casino meet I won $423 on the craps table. Buying my Mopar stage 1 lowering springs and probably a catch can on Monday.

sounds like a nice plan.

have you heard the spintech yet? i had spintech mufflers on my Dakota R/T for like 4 years. they were really loud but they were really raspy. the last couple years i owned the truck i switched to a flowmaster 44 and it sounded much nicer. i'm just not really a fan of rasp. maybe Spintechs sound different now, those mufflers were from like 7 years ago.

Not in person and I know they were pretty big in Dakota scene. Have heard a couple of clips on YouTube of them on a RT and didn't hear the raspiness. One guy actually did a vid with the flow master ans spin tech to show the difference.

Bought it used for around half of what it cost new. I'm going to flip the filter around and see how it is on the other side. Otherwise I will just by a new filter come spring time. Half covers are from a 6.4, just have to make some slight modifications to make them fit the 5.7

Can always get a pre-filter, that will hide that nicely. Well if they make them for that type of filter. I love mine.

I think they have colored filters. If not one of the MMOI guys uses purple panty hose on his CAI and works just fine. Always an option.

Well, I tackled the brakes last night. Replaced rotors and pads with EBC rotors and pads. Plus painted calipers, they are supposed to match the car but think they might have come out a couple shades dark. Oh well, better than stock looking.

Springs and rims done. Did the rear springs last night, what a fucking pita! Had to drop the exhaust in the rear to get the back bolt out of the control arms on both sides. Then trying to jack up the control arm and line the hole up by yourself sucks as well. Drivers side went back together a little easier, after about 45 minutes trying to get passenger side back together and being so frustrated to the point I was ready to throw a wrench threw the garage window. I told the wifey lets go out for a pizza, so we went out for pizza, came home and got that fucker back together in 5-10 minutes, lol. Knocked out both front springs in a little over an hr this morning, those were a fucking breeze. I'm beyond happy with the stance

that looks great! I really like the calipers. Was having the front bumper blacked out an option, or are they all like that? Might look cool painted.

Thanks Bill, from what I have seen they are all like that. But I plan on using that in my favor. Pretty sure I can pull off 3 different colors to look good together. Imo, the blue car and blue calipers with the silver rims and silver vinyl on the calipers look decent. Got the black on front bumper, black around window trim, tinted windows, rear valance is black. If I tint the marker lights on front and rear wheel wells, it will tie in really good.
