Being a bit of an engineering-minded car geek, I like to tinker. However, with respect to having a warranty, I needed to restrict my tinkering to either factory-approved mods and pieces, or just throw all of that payment-offsetting goodness when it comes to repairs. Playing the grown-up, I opted for the former over the latter, and developed a cold air intake solution using budget-friendly, mostly factory parts. Follow along with long-term Project Life Partner, my ’16 Challenger R/T.
For some, doing stoplight burnouts is fun and that’s all they need, so the idea of 500HP is the absolute max. When you have a car that embarrasses Italian sports cars for fun, then 550HP might be your max. For others a 1000HP and beyond are “maybe” the max.
