    I am getting ready to start on my Twin Turbo build and I'm going to finish the 500 conversion.
    I built this through out the last 14 years and raced it for the last few years.
    I made the mistake that All of us make.I took the engine out to add more power and thought I would have it back together in a couple of months change my mind a dozen times and well that was a year ago. So now I am starting back on the car between finishing some other projects. I just pulled the car out of mothballs and put it back in the garage yesterday. More pics to come but I'll start with what the car was before I took it apart.
    Thanks,Joe

                          Someone (AMD?) just recently announced new products that were heretofore unavailable as new for Charger Daytona and Superbird rear windows. I thought it was the glass...

                          Yes aerodynamics and I also like the Charger 500 and Daytona. I did the front end when I built the car years ago just finishing this time.

                              Mocked up the CVF racing serpentine system. Changed the A/C location to a GZMotorsports air pump. Was able to do it without modifying the main brackets. Made a lowering adapter for the tensioner and had the 8 rib pulley made for the pump.

                                I was wondering if I could incorporate a vacuum pump into this, but I'm keeping the AC :bananadance:

                                Absolutely. It would need to be below the tensioner pulley or move that and put the pump there. It’s all doable.

                                  I agree it's doable. The spacer off the back of the main bracket to line up the Gz motorsports pump are 3/4". If you use a serpentine system that is 6-rib you can just buy that pulley from GZMotorsports.
