A pass from Nov 18th. 8.3 1/8th mile ET and a nice 1-2 chirp shift on Mickey Thompson ET Drag Slicks. Good Exhaust sound as I raced a nice and quiet slower truck. Had a late RT so I didn't get the win. Still a nice clean pass with good sound of my truck

Cleaning Catalytic Converters With Soap and Water -EricTheCarGuy
This is my second attempt to clean a catalytic converter, this time with
soap and water. I've heard this method can work so I thought I would give
it a try. One that that's important with these techniques is to do the
procedure properly. On both my first attempt with this one and my last
attempt with lacquer thinner, I didn't do the procedure properly and as a
result I was not successful. I speak to those points in the video. So, if
you have a catalytic converter code and it's not all broken up inside, you
might consider trying this technique. You really don't have anything to
loose if you do.

Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.
Dodge Dakota 4.7L 4x4 Dual Exhaust Sounds with Mandrel Bending Solutions (MBS) Dual Exhaust...
A video clip showing before/after sounds of my 2000 Dodge Dakota quad cab
4x4 4.7L Magnum V8 with the stock Exhaust system and a performance stainless steel
dual catback / muffler back Exhaust
system from Mandrel Bending Solutions (MBS). The muffler is from Full
The look, sound, and fitment is excellent, as was the price. The system
sounds a bit louder in the video than in real life. It's not too loud or
too quiet. Inside the car, it's nearly silent at idle. It's mellow under
part throttle and has a nice bark at full throttle.
Overall, I'm very happy with the Exhaust system.
