    Well it was a very productive day in Mexico yesterday evening. Now ,while I will make this brief I was by myself with the infamous MT82.. while some of you may be talented enough to get videos while making a "spirited run"... I am not...lol

    First up is the '16 SRT8 300.. I was merging from I45 to 99... anybody in or around Houston knows what's up but for the out of towners its an interstate to a loop around the city... anyways... 99 is 2-3 lanes of wide open long stretches where you almost always catch up to something interesting... upon merging a guy in a white SRT8 300 rolls up.. car looks good... dropped, wheels, has exhaust but this is all I could tell from a glance... mind you we are rolling 80-90 mph already.... he comes up gives me a little throttle... I pull down into 4th (I could grab 3rd at 85 or so but with the lock out BS I am dealing with...nah) and wait for him to go... I hear his car downshift so I lay the throttle down and hope for the best...I ended up with about 2-3 cars on him by the end of 4th gear.. but for a boat his car ran good.. we tried this a few times and I always ended up a few cars out on him... he waves me over to exit so what the hell... turns out he owns some performance shop and his car has all the bolt on's you can do with a tune... whatever... I still take the W...


    Next up the Camaro... I didn't get a chance to talk to this guy but after we ran I don't think he wanted to... Same scenario but this time I am already cruising when he gets on the loop.. he promptly makes his way up in the next lane but does some BS ricer Fly by... car sounded good... cant tell you what all he had done but he at least had some type of exhaust on it... anyways I catch back up to him running about 80mph this time.... he taps his horn and holds up 3 fingers... ok... 3rd honk I get it.. he honks it off I grab 3rd and by the time I am at the top of 4th I had a Bus or two on him... it was pretty bad...

    This was the 1st chance I have gotten to try the car out since the Longtubes went on and it had been retuned... guess I cant complain... other than that it would be even better not having to shift at 7200rpm still to actually get the damn thing into 4th... guess a clutch is coming soon...



    And for those wondering..

    Car is a '13GT 6 speed with 3.31 gears... Steeda CAI , accufab TB, Ported Boss intake , 47lb injectors , E85 tune , Longtubes and a lot of other little BS that has nothing to do with making HP... Car is still a work in progress but I cant complain with how its running at the moment I guess...

    Man your car looks great, sounds like it runs great too!

    I don't think there's a 2016 300 SRT tho, let me get my googles on lol.

    Good kills!

    IDK man... just what he said it was.. I am by no means a Dodge expert but I give credit where credit is due... for a 4 door it put up a better fight than the Camaro did..


    Not sure if you are referring to me or the other guy... but I didn't really have a choice at this point... just played the hands I was dealt... guess I could of stopped 80mph traffic and tried a dig...

    300 SRT was killed in model year 14. Their is technically no 15 or 16. sounds right though a bolt on SRT 392 is a high 11x trap car

    Blows my mind how good those 5.0s run with only bolt-ons. You can probably run with my car, maybe beat me, but I need to blower to pull this off. :uh oh:

    Good runs!! I can't decide whether to go with the IM and TB route or try and save for a while and go blower.

    I think I've surprised more than a few people over the last couple of years...even a couple of LS guys that I know have converted. And I am not in here saying im the fastest car out there... ive been beat plenty of times... but then again I like picking on exotics... lots of them running around the west side of Htown...

    Blower...lol... the IM and TB route runs good but nothing replaces boost

    Oh...LOL... and thanks...
