The write-up:

Almost Valentine's Day... decided that she needs some luvin'. I took the girl to Afterhours Mopar Performance and let Scott and Jon have their way with her.

Here what she looked like when I dropped her off. Gentle and innocent in a factory-ish sort of way:

We put her up on the lift exposing her for all the world to see. Look! No thong! :mrgreen:

Anyways... I left her up there; getting the F_ out of the way... Scott/Jon touched her all over... inside and out... fondling her at times... man-handling her when she wanted it - and believe me, she wanted it! :rock: I kept getting updates throughout the night. Dirty little pictures sent to my cell phone... like these showing her..."insides" :shock:

Next they gave her head... Eagle heads (non-ported, stock Eagle springs, custom rods)

As you know, some girls are a little more ...complicated... than others. This one needed some styling on the wiring harness and fancy new coilpacks. (coilpack differences between the '05 5.7's and the '06+) Jon is the expert here, so he did a lot of touching, making good solid connections right where she needeed it most.

At this point, the boys fingers were tweaked for the night and the girl would get another day of man-handling. :mrgreen:

Last minute change: With some excellent assistance from Dave at Modern Mopar Performance Group, I was able to finish her off with an SRT intake manifold! She would definitely be able to suck a LOT better now! Especially with more room to grow...aka 426!! :stir: :rock:

Scott/Jon were in the home stretch... Rouding third base... Heading for home!

Here she is all buttoned up...

I got back to the shop around 8pm Saturday night - Scott/Jon waited for me to get there after several hours of hard work with minimal sleep and Scott being sick. Needless to say she whooped on 'em pretty hard. I think I saw lash marks on Jon's back; but he was smiling about it. :wink:

I'm still doing more mods to her and plan on completing the tweaking process with Johan on the rollers real soon; Yes, Johan likes playing with her too!

I'll keep ya'll posted!

SUPER-special thanks to the boys at Afterhours Mopar Performance:
Jon- The attention to detail and doing things 'right' is simply AWSOME! It's not every day you come across a guy that is willing to go the extra mile..and more! MAJOR kudos to you brudda!

Scott- What can I say man… Over the past five years I've known you; you have helped me SO many times I've lost count. From lining up for the first time on a drag-strip, to open heart surgery on my car; you've always taken that extra time to help out the slow kid. Simply put, you are a good man. I'd give ya a kiss, but you'd probably try to round me up in a Rob-n-Bishop kinda lovin' way.

I REALLY have to thank a bunch of people on this one....
Erik - Thanks for answering a bazillion questions. (mostly repeating everything you had already said or posted.) :roll:

Cam- Sometimes I need a 2x4 upside the head and you delivered. :mrgreen:
Stu (Inertia)- Thank you for answering more and more questions… and the expedited pushrods. VERY quick delivery!!
Dave (Modern Muscle Perf. Group) - Talk about a last minute save!! Whew! Without your help, I certainly would have been walking to work this morning.
Johan- The toooooooona! Once again brudda... you've hit it on the head. Came thru for me on a SUNDAY! Thank you SO much. We'll get this tune dialed-in and hit the rollers real soon! (hint!)
