I had painted the Engine Covers awhile back the OEM Silver Steel Metallic;
Those looked ok for a few days, and then they just kinda got lost with all the
other Silver Steel- Just didn't make a statement....So..I took those off..
modified a set of Engine Covers I had, repainted, added Custom Decals, and here they are:

Have you flushed your coolant? Reservoir looks a little gunky.

Also, I thought we were 370 cu in, not 372.

You could be introducing a lot of unnecessary turbulence into your incoming air with that ribbed tubing attached to the intake. It wouldn't surprise me if you were down HP vs. the stock unit because of it.

Also, do you notice high engine bay temperatures because of all the mirror-like plates in there? Could be enough extra heat to cause excessive aging of all the plastic hoses and wires.

Not trying to nit-pik too bad there Stan, just a few heads up:fing02:

You certainly have your own style with regards to the SRT8.

Change the color to yellow. Yellow paint and decals are good for at least 15hp at the wheels... ask the ricers.

Yeah...but it's more like 6.06l or some junk like that, the .1 is definitely rounded up. Heh, they pad their displacement but underreport HP...I can definitely live with that, beats them doing the opposite!

Oh, and face77 was completely joking...it's kinda like the MOPAR sticker listed as a performance mod in my signature!
