murfman is just really nice
Re: I love this hood!

Well it is on hold for the time being as the Srt Ocho is the prioroity, but Yeah it is a 5.9 Magnum with a scat crank and rods, going to go Diamond pistons. Still up in the air on heads, either the RHS Iron heads, or the Edelbrock aluminum Magnums. Mopar MPI single plane intake and a Hughes cam. I'm going to bolt it to the AX 15 using a 3.9 Dakota bellhousing. I'm going to see how far I can push the AX-15, if it grenades I'll get one from Rockland Standard gear.

As a side note Opel Engineering in Streamwood must love me with the F-head, the 392, the 408, and the SRT-4 build.

Re: I love this hood!

Update!!!! Trufiber just called and told me the hoods are IN!!! Mine is shipping today! Man what perfect timing. The Jeep has a strange curse with me, the Valve spring broke and took out the block, and the day the machine shop called me on a Tuesday to tell me the block was trash, Mopar released 8 6.1 blocks from back order, I ordered one and it was delivered Thursday. Now my wife took out the front fender, hood, bumper and my newly modded headlight, and this hood (IMO the BEST looking hood for the GCSRT-8) is released the day the insurance adjuster is due to show up at the body shop.

Re: I love this hood!

If I were a srt driver I'd be all over it, went to the site and apparently one of their shops is only like an hr and a half from me.

Will do, stopped by the body shop today, He has all the damaged sheet metal and plastic off, just waiting to pull the front inner fender out and for the parts to show up. If things go well, should be done around the 23rd.
