    Roll Tide!

    I just bought a 14 R/T about 3 weeks ago and am very pleased to be a Challenger owner. I'm coming from the GTO world, former owner of a 2004 GTO. Stickers 1 was a h/c/i/e/sprayed 5.7L 6 speed. My new ride is a 5.7 6 speed, intake, cat back and tune. For now. Like the original Stickers, Stickers 2 will end up putting 500 or so to the ground. I look forward to building a hemi and learning from all the knowledgeable folks here. My last hemi was my wife's 06 Magnum RT AWD. I wasn't allowed to touch that.

    Welcome to the neighborhood!

    I had a 2005 GTO (Midnight Blue Metallic, Auto 4 tranny) that I owned from new till December 2013 when I bought a 2011 Challenger R/T Classic. You'll certainly find that it's a lot easier to refuel your Challenger than it was to get gas into the GTO. :)

    There are certainly a few LS traits in the Hemi. Especially the non-MDS version like your 6-speed.

    Go Gators!

    I like the trunk space in the Challenger, too. I can put my rifle in the trunk whereas in the Goat I couldn't carry anything bigger than a shoebox. Or so it seemed.

    I'm interested in doing a hemi build, especially a VVT cam install.
