Whoa's build thread

I finally got some pics on photobucket,so.........
these seem to be the only stock pics i can still find



my first mods were under hood. the required HEMI orange paint, and I built my own (not-so-cold) air intake. I built it out of pvc parts from lowes

I used a "street" elbow and a larger size pipe to give it a smoother look, but I didnt want the big lip on the inside to mess with airflow so I tappered it smooth.
before:


after:

I used a coupler (same size as the elbow) to mount the filter on,and smoothed the inside of it as well. heres how it looked before,cant find the after shot

I painted the elbow with black wrinkle paint, and had the tubing covered in chrome vinyl.I used a T clamp and a bracket to mount/support it behind the headlight, and the stock coupler @ the TB. I drilled a hole in the tube to put the IAT sensor in(snug fit no grommet) and just put a vent filter on the other side for the pcv system.Crankcase air filter

Re: Whoa's build thread

The next mods were to debadge & drop it I used wk bilsteins and wk eibachs..
I also blacked out the pillars

next I color matched the trim then I got a mopar front lip.It was silver,so i decided to plastidip it black to see how it looked

I was kicking around some ideas with the window trim:
white:


and black:


put havent decided yet.also I whited out my 3rd brake light.I LOVED the look, but during the day it was VERY hard to see when applied.


but was ok @ night!

sorry for the crackberry pics.

Re: Whoa's build thread

I did the grille mesh mod as well. i ran out of time the 1st day and didnt paint it...these are better shots of the front lip also



I liked the look ok, but the bare mesh wasnt gonna stay that way,so I went ahead and painted it.. grey mesh and,for now white plastidip, just in case



cant forget my JG sticker! Had a sign shop make a bigger one. It's SUPPOSED to look like etched glass(and the samples on clear did) but my tint changed the look

Then my exhaust Cherry bomb vortex muffler and dual challenger tips Lets see your duals!




well, I did a few things fairly quick,so i didnt get lots of in between pics
I put my stock rear springs back in to keep from bouncing off the stops with stuff in the back,plastidiped the mopar lip& then the sides white,and got new,bigger tires 245-70-17 goodyear silent armour's

Re: Whoa's build thread

I painted the calipers awhile back


also put in a catch can



and an ADDCO rear swaybar

much beefier


I've heard people say the included bushings/brackets were no good to use, mine were ok,however i did have to open up the bolt holes. I used a diegrinder to make them fit,only took a few min.

also the holes in the sway were a bit tight for the stock end links-more with the grinder, but not bad.

Re: Whoa's build thread

The chrome vinyl i used on the intake didnt like the heat this summer and got all out of shape, so I got rid of it, painted the whole thing silver,and added a heat sheild, so now it IS a CAI I switched the little spectre filter i had for a bigger AFE as well

I made the sheild out of a piece of corregated plastic- no heat soak. havent gotten the weatherstriping for the top yet though

Re: Whoa's build thread

I need to update this thread!
A while back i tinted my tails. store was out of vht, so i got rustoleum. mask,tint,dry,wetsand,clear,dry,wetsand,polish! Also blended my 3rd brake light



The pressure washer removed theJG stickers i had, so i had a shop make me some new ones out of the vinal they use for wraps- one piece VERY tuff!


My water pump started leaking a while back,but i like to do more than one thing at a time. I was thinking about advancing the stock cam, but after discussing it with Ryan,decided not to.( I like high rpms too much) However, for the sake of keeping it together at my beloved rpm's I got a 6.1 tensioner for it.The dealer had it for like $30,got a new timing cover seal for insurance NOTE:
my local dealer only has the 5.7 gasket listed WITH the whole cover!!
I got the 6.1-sans cover. dont understand the thinking,but if you need one....

5.7 tensioner


6.1

Re: Whoa's build thread

my upper rad hose was getting poked by some nubbs sticking out of the fan shroud, so i smoothed it down

before

after


Yay for new stuff!


I wanted to make it more spiffy, so i got a stainless hose from summit, but the ends only go up to 1-1/2" thats the top rad size,but the t-stat housing was bigger... so after hasseling the local autozone guys for a long time, I got a housing for a '77 360. as is, the tstat set into the groove,and wouldn't push to seal it, so out came the sander.


TA DA!

for good measure i cleaned up the jagged edge inside as well (sorry forgot pics)
then i got this bad boy!

it's sfi rated & 20% underdriven


needs a smaller belt

fits pretty good

under construction

Re: Whoa's build thread

had some issues with the damper bolt, but finally got it!

bad part was i had to pull the rad & fan to do it dumped alot of steering fluid


some water too, but most was from the steering/fan system. If you are going to change ,flush this out, get it first.my dealer only had 2 qts! had to order more- takes a lot. and it aint cheep! $35 for 2 qts!
after changing the tensioner,water pump,hoses,and oil i took a short trip-2 hrs. last time evic showed 15.4 this time was 15.8, and i stomped it a little more I still need to change plugs soon, but almost 1/2 mpg (75 on hwy + some in town) and a much quicker revving engine to boot!

Good to know about the thermostat housing in case I go the same route later on.
