Need some suggestions for a couple of upgrades on my 06RT.

Xpipe
Cam
Oil Catch Can

Thanks in advance!

Don't you have a factory x-pipe?

^ His info says straight pipes, so probably not.

An oil catch can is good (not a performance booster though). The x-pipe (if you don't have one) will help with performance. A cam is questionable on a '06 because the heads do not have the flow of the 2009+ Eagle heads. The cam performance will be limited by the flow of the pre-Eagle heads.
The biggest performance upgrade will be a custom tune. An upgrade of the rear axle ratio will help too if you don't have the 3.06 rear gear ratio.

I do. I read the factory xpipe is the way to go. Still haven't decided if I want to remove it or not.

Are you thinking performance specifically?
I am going for the drag/street racing build. I have plenty of torque at the moment (Dyno'd at 320 per ft) but need to increase my HP (Dyno'd at 270hp).

Thanks. I have a tuner in mind, but didn't know that about the Cam. I thought about the rear axle as well. Thanks for the info.

I've only had the Charger for about 6 months. If it's stock on the gears, I'm running 3.07.

As I threw out there on your other post, you definitely need to do some more research on all the options you are inquiring about.

The nitrous stuff you were talking about on the other post is simply incorrect.

This is how people grenade motors.

That's why I'm asking questions. I've been doing research.

I suspect he may have blocked you after the 'interaction' 4 months ago:

I don't understand why people have to be dicks here. I obviously don't know anything, which is why I'm coming here to ask questions.
