Fiberglass bumpers narrowed for a better fit, sun visors and rear view mirror in.
Battery relocation kit with battery disconnect switch installed.
(I know that these aren't really interesting updates, but I'm just trying get some action going in this forum section :hammer: )

Because I couldn't find one of those for $8500. :happy:

With a smaller blower pulley and bigger injectors, this engine should have about 800hp at the crankshaft, which should be plenty to get a 3500 pnds/1600 kg streetcar down the road.

Well, since the manual transmission out of an SRT8 that I bought a couple years ago can only handle 470 lb/ft of torque and my Hellcat engine produces over 650 lb/ft... I had to buy a stronger one. So now I have a tr6060 out of a 2016 Challenger Hellcat with 5k miles on it.

My build plans have changed a lot over the years. When I started, the plan was to build a "cheap" rat musclecar, using all the spare parts I have. :hmmm:

Gelukkig heb je nu zoveel spare parts.

The plan for the future is to restore my '69, and then I'm done restoring cars. I'm just going to drive and enjoy them. 8)

I picked up my hellcat tr6060 transmission today. Together with the McLeod clutch, it should be bullet proof and last a long time... since my car is a 1000 pnds/453 kg lighter than the Challenger it was designed for.
