Full length, big tube, ceramic coated Headman Headers running into 3'' dual exhaust with X-pipe and Hooker Aerochamber mufflers. Suspension is a Shockwaves air bag system by Air Ride Technologies rolling on KMC wheels with 245/40ZR18 up front and 275/40ZR20 rubber in the back. Front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors. March billet aluminum dual serpentine belt setup with Vintage air conditioning, Powermaster alternator, chrome power steering pump and an electric fan mounted to a 4'' aluminum Northern radiator. Custom leather interior with Challenger logos embroidered into each headrest and dash pad. Trunk mounted Optima battery with disconnect. This is a very well-done ride that is a blast to drive.
