History
Started this over 2 years ago with a cone K&N intake filter mod where it was housed inside the stock filter box. From there I learned everything about the 5.7 motor, mods available and where I wanted to go with my Durango. I'm a tinkerer and put 100% into things I love. Im going for the 11s naturally aspirated, with the stock bottom end 5.7. Stuart Griffin did it with his quad cab. I know I can do it now at a lower altitude!
Performance and mod videos

Officially installed and running a ported 6.4 RAM intake manifold! Tuner says high end is showing a better air charge. Love to here that.

0-60 in 3.81 secs 12.08 1/4 mile @ 112 mph! Most likely the fastest NA stock block 5.7 in the world! Switched to 295/40r20 Toyo Proxes STiiis the day of this run. Radials we're spinning too much in much lower DAs and with updated tunes.

Switched it up to a custom lightweight performance resonated exhaust. Saves 59 pounds and sounds way better than just the turn downs or the full Catback.

Drive bys with current exhaust:

Best run ever! Vid above.

Best run with with previous cam with a 91 octane race tune and 3.45 gears and ported intake manifold got me a 12.92s 1/4 mile @ 106 mph. -239 altitude, -615 DA in Death Valley.

3/11/2022
Best Las Vegas run with previous cam was a 13.07 @ 105 mph, complete track ready on radials and with 97 Octane. ~4890lbs 1975 ft altitude 1467 DA. Best track run that night was 13.62. heat soak killed times by half a sec or so. New track intake will help with that significantly.

No more exhaust tips. No more fog lights. Ram air inlet on passenger side now. Also pics of new look.


x4 305/35r20 Nitto 555rIIs on
20x10 Trackhawk Replicas 21 PSI is the magic #

Under weight expectations. No more weight reduction for now. Under goal of 4700lbs or less. Me in it at 205lbs dressed. 20% fuel.


2/4/2022
Best track run so far with previous cam. On street tires, 370 lbs weight reduction, 97 octane. Pre ported intake manifold and SOS coil run. 1300DA. Was best track run in Las Vegas so far. Barley had to wait for runs, so intake temps stayed lower. 13.17 @ 105 street run that same night. Started porting the intake manifold the next morning.

Cleaned up the underside while keeping weight down using ABS plastic and aluminum DIN rails.

Engine bay, hood insulation cut to allow room for the RAM intake manifold.

Dyno numbers with all the mods? Sorry if I copy off your build
Not yet. Hopefully I'll get a chance early next year. More interested in ETs right now.

Go for it. That's why I share.

I see you want brembos. I do too but I have a theory I don’t need them but maybe you could prove my theory to be wrong. My current belief is that brembos will not reduce stopping distance only improve heat dissipation. I think maybe it’s just the widened contact patc
I don’t know if draggy has anything to monitor stopping. 60-0 with the same tires with stock calipers and then with brembos.
I think deep down my wife must be part Jewish. She monitors like every penny I spend. And I forgot to mention I had an ‘03 WRX where I ripped out everything I thought was unnecessary weight. Everyone thought I was crazy but that 500 lbs or so made my track days that much more fun.
