R&D – OBD-II Permanent Installation

While planning for the permanent installation of a DiabloSport Trinity in Project: Challenger, we developed the concept of a device to meet several of our permanent-installation requirements.  First, we did not want the permanent installation of the Trinity to prevent any other use of the OBD-II port.  There are a number of other devices available […]

Challenger Battery Replacement

Challenger Battery Replacement

After an extended downtime, the battery on Project: Challenger went, well, kaput, and having to start a muscle car with a booster pack just takes away some of the “wow factor” of the vehicle.  So, after four-and-a-half years, we picked up a new battery in order to perform the necessary replacement.  Dodge may have honored […]

Always Check the Heater

Always Check the Heater

Rust in the heater becomes rust in the radiator and in the engine block. Replacing this part of the system gets us a step closer to a rust-free engine – that’s a very important goal for the MG.

C&L Performance HEMI Air Intake System

C&L Performance HEMI Air Intake System

Back in 2009, we installed the Mopar Performance Cold Air Intake in an original effort to maintain the purity of Project: Challenger.

It was purchased because of the need for a highly accurate gauge and this boasts a 0.1 PSI accuracy – the best we could find on the reasonably-priced market. It has survived being bounced around with all the other automotive tools for several years, being jostled […]
