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. If Stuart Griffin can do it with his quad cab, Im sure I can do it with the Durango.
Performance and mod videos

All installed with my own two hands in my garage. Tuning by Jay Greene at Greene Racing. Tires installed on wheels by Discount Tire.

Best run 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. Mods added since.

Best Las Vegas run was a 13.07 @ 105 mph, complete track ready on radials and with 97 octane. With all mods but the track intake. 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.
