    Question regarding stock exhaust v-band clamp

    In the factory the assembly process is monitored, especially torque, clean new part, OEMs usually discourage reuse in applications for dealer service because it would take too much time to define a process to prep / clean and check the clamp (threads, corrosion, torque strain, etc..) for...

    Question regarding stock exhaust v-band clamp

    I did the same Holger to weld on some flanges for a straight pipe to swap out the cats and resonators when needed.... no issues, clamp may just need a couple hits with a hammer or whatever to crack it loose when you take it off for the first time. Reused the clamps with no issues.. Cheers, Mike

    GEN-V considered a mid-engine?

    In automotive design, the end centers of the crankshaft has to be between the axle centerlines in order to be considered mid-engine. So if the front center of the crank is behind the front spindle axle centerline, it's consider a mid-engine. Not sure if that answers any questions... just...

    Got some custom side rocker / sill covers for my RT/10

    Thanks, we think alike, I asked the same thing how they're made, here's a quote from an email from Randy "high polish Aluminum (and even Stainless Steel) are notorious for showing scratches! Stainless may sound "hard"....but when you buff it like a Mirror, a finger nail can leave a mark ! not...

    Re: Preventative tip regarding the window reg clip breaking - Lubricating the assembl I changed the Album settings to public rather than members only, that was probably why...

    Preventative tip regarding the window reg clip breaking - Lubricating the assembly

    My passenger window was going slow..... I could sense the tension inside the assembly potentially breaking the clip if I forced the window up and down. The tension is surely due to lack of lubrication and not being used that often (especially the passenger side), having slight corrosion in the...

    Imo to be 100% the 13 srt viper needs a more masculine grille

    It's always a facial expression that's for sure.. the fascia / grille on the Gen V is doing a bit of #4.. Personally I think an excessively mean look is a bit tacky for those types of guys who drive with their hand on top of the steering wheel and flex their triceps at stop lights, etc.. A...

    I have had enough with these battery/charging system issues

    Unfortunately I don't have the Viper schematics, but I'm just going on gut instincts on this, so yes that's what I would do. The IOD feeds so many things, that's why it's tough to pinpoint. If you google Dodge and Ignition Off Draw, it's a common problem for people to find the root of the...

    I have had enough with these battery/charging system issues

    Ignition Off Draw, may have to refer to the schematic to see what is powered when the ignition is off that could be causing the drain, pull the fuses of those, from keyless remote module, electric door lock, interior lights, all that sort of stuff that can be powered when the key is off, some...
