Here's my little write-up on it. After I drove it for a day, I had to properly torque the sway bar ends. It's tight quarters on the left!

SRT8 Rear Sway Bar install on 3.7 WK
Nice write up bro. Got mine for 50+15 for energy bushings

Also can't have all that combustion if you can't get it out. Some sort of exhaust upgrade.

I almost forgot. The very first "mod" was painting my calipers red. Since then, I've seen Kia and the little Fiat 500 with red calipers. Damn! Wish I had gone yellow.

Re: 3.7l performance love

I like your CAI. Mine connects to the resonator box . When I bought it, I went by what the picture looked like. I've gotta figure out what I need to get it directly on the TB.

Re: 3.7l performance love

Re: 3.7l performance love

Wrap with real CF, or like the 3M stuff? That's more my budget , but it would look cool.

I've been trying to find some way to 86 the reso. I just need to find something to connect the CAI (4" I think) to the TB (3 or 3.25").....
