W...t...f...rant

WTF is it with people around here these days?
Asking a fresh round of all the questions that have been asked 6 billion times before...
SEARCH people, below is a graphical representation of where the search features are located when signed into the site:


In addition to my post yesterday (in its entirety for your convenience):

to answer all your questions (current and future):
CAI is all personal preference, they all yield about the same gain
Diablosport predator, intune, and trinity with a cmr tune will be one of the best bang for buck mods...contact johan or herseyboy for said tune.
Bwoody and Eibach are the options for lowering, no coilovers exist or will probably exist. There was a company that made them but that was a mess.
stock block can handle 8psi of boost before blowing up
Paramount and SHR make upgraded transmissions.
Paramount sells an upgraded valvebody that firms up shifts. You can also get the blue top solenoids from an AMG MB.
Black interiors came in the 08+ SRTs
275/315 tire combo fits fine without rubbing
get Bwoody swaybar endlinks, dont waste money on swaybars
Xenondepot has the best HID kits that I've ever used, and relays are included
Premium fuel is required
A cam is a good first "internal" engine mod...may need to replace the valve springs depending on cam.
All items above are from personal experience and from reading and searching the forum.

Ok, off the soapbox for now.
So back on the soapbox I go:
Any and all "performance" chips that can be found on ebay or the like are TRASH, they don't work for SHIT. Period, case closed, end of story.
Since we are on the topic, throttle spacers equally as shitty, good to hold down papers from flying off your desk or workbench. Also good as a make-shift hammer of sorts in a pinch.
I also forgot oil yesterday....0-40w is the factory fill, brand doesn't matter....Yes your oil cap may say Mobil1, but Chrysler also wasn't bankrupt and was in good standing with Mobil1. If you're lifters are too loud for you, switch to 20-50 in the summer, yes SRT engineers said it's ok.
LED foglights dont give of as much usable light as the halogen or HID setups
You can replace your factory taillight bulbs with LEDs, SEARCH (see above) for the thread I started regarding it.
Your interior lights can be replaced with LED's, however, you may notice a slight glow as the resistance isnt the same...live with it or leave a factory bulb in somewhere. The glove box is a popular choice.
Factory window tint meters out between 18-21%
The lights in the rear bumper do come with bulbs but do not work, yes it was designed that way...contact taillight solutions to make them work
Additional grounding....may or may not work....connect a couple wires, if you notice results....great. If not, oh well.

OK....I think that's it for this round of WTF....hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed typing. Till next time. LOL
