Building Bella_SRT8 - Single Turbo Build

So my wife, Navil, is not very familiar with how to post on here yet, so until she gets the hang of it i thought i would get the build progress started. To start with a little background on the car purchase

It is a 2008 Black SRT8 and we purchased it in the begining of september 2012 with about 32000 miles on it. The car is Completely stock as of right now. My wife has wanted this car ever since she got a good look at one (thank you scott! aka hemi_time) Anyways, She purchased a 2010 scion in february of 2010 and HATED it. All she ever did was look at the SRT8's and after a little bit of saving up, we were able to trade in her scion and my 2011 yamaha stryker cruise :-( to get her dream truck. Now she has her baby and i told her she can do whatever she wants to it, leave it stock or build it up its her truck, so she can do what she wants. This is the day we picked it up and thats her standing by the truck.

THE DAY WE BROUGHT HER HOME.


HOW SHE LOOKS TODAY



So I am a speed freak and love racing. I go just about every weekend that i can and i think it is rubbing off on my wife now. I had a track outing with a camaro club and they welcomed my wife with her jeep there. So we took a trip up to byron, with a little bit of peer pressure from the group she made her first trip down the 1/4 mile... and thats when the itch set in. Her first pass was a 13.3 @ 98 mph with a 1.86 60ft. She loved it soo much she went down a second time with about the same results. About a month later i took one last trip out to GLD to attemp my new personal best, and orginally took the truck to look my tools and equipment for my car. Well the itch came back because there was a fellow group of SRT8 rigs there so she wanted to see what she could do. After playing with traction control and showing her hot to rev it up a little bit while launching, she pulled out a 13.12 @ 101 mph with a 1.83 60ft. She kept trying and trying and all she said she wanted was a 12 second pass.


Now after watching, hearing, and talking to others with faster jeeps, she has set a goal for herself to be one of the fastest female SRT8 drivers and she wants to turbo the truck. So coming up this year it is a good possibility that her truck will be fed some boost.

now that is the ultimate goal so i will continue to update this thread on her progress and what she achieves over time. She also wanted me to post that any and all donations to help her become the "fastest SRT8 chick" are welcome. I will also keep track of all current mods and future mods as well

Current mods:
window tint 35%front/ 5% back
Black powder coated wheels w/ pink lug nuts
tinted tailights and rear fog lights
Trinity install and tune
Electric cutouts (DMH) and center muffler delete


long term mods: Goal 500-550whp/tq
Precision PT7675 CEA Turbo - T4.96ar exhaust housing
80lb Siemens injectors
50.5mm Tial "Q" BOV
Precision 46mm wastegate - 5 psi springs to start
AEM Failsafe Wideband
AEM meth/water injection
In tank Walbro 405lph pump
3.5"inch front mounted intercooler


Very long term:
Upgraded drivetrain including trans, TC , Rear end
Forged (possibly stroked) engine build
More boost
2 step (when she is more comfortable racing)
More to come!

any and all feedback will be welcome as this is my first journey with this type of vehicle so i will be seeking what is the best route and what to look for. Thanks everyone and look forward to the results!!! I will update as progress moves on!

You can get 500rwhp with an NA 426, then throw some spray at it on the track. Beautiful truck and best of luck with it. Get a trinity and a CMR tune from Joel or Johan now.
The rest of that list can be taken care of with a trip to Stage6 for the turbo or some of us local guys for a stroker.

appreciate the suggestion. Due to it being her daily driver, i want to avoid taking apart the engine as much as possible and she asked specifically for a turbo lol. My car on the other hand i will be forging and stroking mine in addition to the twin turbo setup, but i would like to keep hers stock. I dont want to give her too much power at first. The turbo kit will be built by the shop that has done all the work on my cars including fabbing up the twin turbo kit i have on my camaro.

from what i am seeing there arent many shops that tune these beasts near chicagoland so when that time comes i will be reaching out to one of them for the tune.

Not much lag at all.. Pretty much likes flick of a switch and your ass is glued to the seat..

But mine is not 500 hp. It's around 960 on pump gas and mild boost.

960 on mild boost. That is awesome. How much is that exactly?

Plus i see you have the stroked build as well which would help with the spool. I was anticipating a little bit of lag with the stock internals and discplacement but for her i think that would be better for now. And it will leave room to grow too.

Is Tim still tuning and Mr. Norms still around? Last I heard Tim was ModularPowerHouse now. Unless he is doing both or neither or what I heard wasn't true. But I think I read it on the internet, so it much be true.
