I purchased this Bad boy in the making for $14,700 at 51,000miles

Since I started doing so much to my 5.7, Id figure that I start a build thread.

Excuse me if this build thread is in reverse order, because Im actually gonna go back in time on this until I catch up to now.

This is all how it started, just looking for some wheels........

I also installed a 77 series K&N CAI that I purchased from and took a picture of her because I was contemplating lowering her on some Eibachs. I also retested her on the Trinity drag after the CAI install and she ran a 14.60 1/4mile

Then there was the Limo tint and The Eibach Lowering Kit

As you can see in the first and last picture, the jeep actually sits about 1.5 inches lower all around compared to the jeeps before picture above. The middle picture was after the install of my Limo Tint

What I currently have going on today today is the installation of the Spartan Plus Cam 214/222 duration, Inertia Performance Heads and SRT8 Headers/Exhaust Manifolds with Full SRT8 MagnaFlow Exhaust system

As of December 3rd, 2012 all of which are being Installed and tuned at Spanking Time Motorsports in San Bernadino CA. And From what I hear Adam and John are some of the of the best!!

If you were wondering the pre-Dyno came in at 292rwh, so after the mods I am really hoping for about 60 - 75 more to the rear. I will post some real dyno results before and after by posting the dyno read outs as soon as I obtain them. Right Now I am looking at about monday or tuesday for all the work to be completed. Once done I will also do some runs and post some video.

This is what I purchased from Inertia

5.7L Inertia Performance Cylinder Heads

5.7L Cylinder Heads
Fully CNC and Hand Blended Intake and Exhaust Ports
Our Proprietary Valve Job
Stock Diameter Intake and Exhaust Valves
New Valve Seals Installed
Upgraded Valve Springs and Hardware Installed

The Spartan Plus Cam I also purchased from Inertia, it was about $900 for the entire kit. The Spartan Plus Cam is not listed on their website; however, instead you will have to inquire about it. Call Stu, he can help you. In fact it was Stu's recommendation I pick this cam because of the amount of bottom end power he has seen it give the 5.7's. He told me any bigger of a cam and the Jeep would bog down at the line, which is a no no, since jeeps are known for pulling off the line.

Finally, I purchased the some SRT8 Headers/Manifolds and an SRT8 exhaust system off ST Motorsports. These were some things they had laying around and told me If I picked them up I would net about 25 more horsepower and really enable the heads and cam to breath a lot better. So i Did!

Note: The pictures of the manifolds and Ported head below are just examples of what I purchased. i will post the real deal when I get to the shop on Monday or Tuesday

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:17 PM.
