Paint sealant and clear bra. You might have some left to lower it.

Thank you all for the helpful suggestions. Some I hadn't even thought of. Will a performance tb really help? Pros and cons?

If I had that dough, probably get the whole thing wrapped in satinguard. It would give the paint a cool looking satin finish, but completely protect it.

Got my quotes from Chris at Seven Wraps today on protecting the front-end.

Re: You have a new SRT and $4000 to start modding:

Had the Borla ATAK dipped in black ceramic installed today. Looks and sounds awesome.


Installed the Billets oil catch can on Saturday. Waiting on the braided hoses and other polished parts to arrive.


Spoke with the owner at the shop that did my exhaust install about adding a cam, kooks headers, pipes, extra pcm, tuner, and tune. To be continued...

Mods done so far:

Blacked out rear fogs
Billets oil catch can
Borla ATAK exhaust

Even though they are barbed fittings and low pressure you still might want to put hose clamps on those lines. Looks good though 👍

+ 1 on the clamps on the lines. Primarily for the the dirty side (the one that goes from the left hand side to the middle of the engine/ intake).

I have the same setup as far as a CC on my Hemi and have recently noticed the left hand side line at the bronse fitting sometimes is wet with gunk (oil residue) for some reason. I've wiggled it and its on there tight but not sure why its pushing oil back up. For that reason alone i'm planning on putting a clamp and screw it on tight there hopefully that eliminates the leakage. Still on my to do list haven't gotten around to doing it just yet cause i think i have some laying around somewhere in my garage but are cheap at your local autoparts shop.

Just my 0.02. Looks great by the way. Loving that exhaust setup.

Ordered the nicer hoses from Billets to replace those standard lines. Will tighten them down with clamps too. Thanks for the heads up!
