    Very broad question that will get many different responses and opinions. Look through the forums it's all there. My take is.
    Performance. Exhaust and intake is mostly just for noise unless tuned along with a pulley.

    Ask a question you will get many answers and opinions. Use the search function, read the wiki's. There is a lot of great info here, trained dodge mechanics, technical info, problem resolution, and guys who just like to tinker with everything (me). Shifters, tires, graphics, wheels, paint, tunes, pulleys, etc . . . You will find a little of everything!

    Here's the recipe for a 9 second hellcat.

    - driver mod
    bottom ATI pulley
    top Metco 2.75 pulley
    HHP tune
    Al drive shaft
    3.09 rear gears
    Cat delete because we use race gas at the track, but they can be put back on if needed
    stock air box
    stock hellcat exhaust
    18 rear wheels and MT 305 45 18 R's for racing

    DSS driveshaft and Nitto drag radial 555R 305/35/20 should be your first mods, in my opinion

    If you're just into playing a little and habe no plans for track time, should owners still consider drive shaft swap?
