Default ..how sweet it is...

Hey guys! my name is Darin and I got a 2008 SRT8 about a month ago...I love it so much!!
I have no problems with the performance of this car it's definitely the fastest, most powerful car I've ever owned HOWEVER, I have some friends at work who are encouraging me to put in a cold air intake and think about putting on a cat-back exhaust. Truthfully, I don't see the need for the extra horsepower beyond the generous 425 it already has but maybe some of you more experienced challenger drivers could share some of your insight with me and point me in the right direction.

Not only will you get a few extra ponies with the CAI and cat back exhaust... you will also get a custom sound from adding those. Explore online for the sound you"re after and see if something strikes your fancy. Congrats and have fun!!

Welcome to the forums!
Sounds like you have gotten the perma-grin.
CAI,Diablo Tuner, 180 T-Stat.
The exhaust gets louder as they get older.
Enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome guys! Nice community you have here
I've decided to go with the K&N CAI for now and hold off on the cat-back. Maybe replace the stock mufflers with magnaflows...still kinda up in the air.
..and yep, still sportin' the PERMAGRIN!!!

Yeah, the 'zoomers' look great....but how do they rate performance wise. My buddy just got the Borla cat-back on his Jeep SRT8 and loves it.
