Looks like you have a good start on everything. 17k for a 2007. That seems like a smoking deal.

Welcome to the family! seems like you have a good start..

May i ask why the 440?
No replacement for displacement. I understand some concerns with the con rod angle at the max angle, however; no one has warned me and told me to go 426 instead. Stage 2 will run low boost 6-8 psi so this is a low compression 440.

Ahh, gotcha.. Sound like you've got it all mapped out! Can't wait to see it unfold.

Have you seen the vehicle you are purchasing? I would be very weary of any buyer who is selling a 2007 in decent condition with anything short of 90K miles for that amount of money :confused:.

R1 has great break options I would consider if I were you.
Taillight solutions can do the blacked out tail lights for you.
You can either paint the trim pieces yourself and save some money or buy the black molding cover up tape.
The only exhaust you are finding for $500 is used.

Also don't forget that install of the 440 with the miscellaneous new parts you will need will most like be more than the 10K.

Ppi and I test drove it. Runs perfect, vandalized paint, but since I re-paint all my vehicles anyway, no big deal. Yes, this is a killer deal and the reason I go back into an SRT-8. I come off an Porsche CTT. The exhaust is a custom. My friend owns a local shop. as the 440, if I wasn't for my buddies the price tag on this one could easily reach 45k plus. Notion taken on the tails and R1. I will check them out.
