    Changed oil today with mobil 1 0-40 and mobil 1 filter ml-210. Removed SRT filter and drained both cooler as well as pan. Purchased car with 1000 miles and was about to change oil when I saw the dimple drain plug-forced myself to wait until 2000 miles-plugs had a little bit of metal and it's tough to remove-these are some strong magnets! all lines etc...looked good no seepage as many have reported. 6 quarts good to go! Oh yeah filled filter a couple of times so had pretty much instant oil pressure on start up...

    There is a website and ebay store-I am calling on Monday to see about becoming a distributor. They have a Hellcat package on eBay right now for $149.
    It consists of the drain plug for our engine and auto A8 tranny, magnets to place on the oil filter itself, and one for the rear end. No oil cooler though...I will post up as soon as I have more info and individual plug pricing. This would have made a great fathers day gift for anyone serious about keeping their car in top form...

    After speaking with the folks at Dimple, I will become a dealer ASAP. They make all their products in USA and they are a Veteran and Wounded Warrior based father and son company. There will be special pricing for Hellcat.org members-I have to reach out to the site admin about becoming a vendor partner.

    I have had MANY conversations with Richard. He IS a GREAT Guy! He has been very Open and Honest about his plug design and their abilities to help protect our engines. :cool:

    FWIW ---- Being as ANAL as I am, I have every orifice (oil cooler plug - oil pan plug - the drain and fill plugs on the A8 trans and drain and fill plugs on the differential installed! Also a lifetime oil filter system (S-17 by K&P) and dual JLT Catch Cans with a METCO C-C Breather mod rounding all that out with a simple K&N drop-in filter! The OEM air box is WELL DESIGNED and IMHO no-more is needed. :D

    Wrist pin issues from mile #9 :eek: At 2700miles they gave out!! :mad: New motor at 3010miles (plug and play crate motor from FCA) We are now at 9500 total or 6500 on the new motor! It is much more of a BEAST than #1 was! And hopefully it will stay that way! :)

    I would prefer someone pre-menopausal thanks. Maybe Blake Lively. She makes me lively.
