Intercooler is in front of the radiator. There are special mounts with the fit kit to accommodate the trans cooler.

I can not answer the part about the lights behind the grill. You might have to tweak that.

I did my own install and it was very straight forward.

Of all the vehicles I have ever owned, which includes '92 Jeep Cherokee, '95 4Runner, '03 Tundra, '07 FJ Cruiser, this truck is hands down my favorite. If you stomp it, it will snap your head back. You dont even have to stomp it to get whiplash. When I go to pass people, I blow by them like they were standing still, even if they are doing 70mph. I would be shocked if anyone out there is disappointed with their charger.

As for being faster than a Tundra. My brother has a brand new 5.7 liter Tundra. It would depend on the distance of the race for sure, but in terms of quickness and 0-60, there is no comparison. The SuperTaco has to be one of the quickest fastest accelerating trucks on the planet, unless someone can prove otherwise.

I have an X-1, long tubes, NST overdrive pullies, TRD intake, URD y pipe w/hi flo cats, URD catback.

I dynoed at 354.

I see 19-21 around town (if I keep my foot out of it1), depending on ambient air temp. Warmer temps=better mpg, cooler temps=lower mpg.
I get the same mpg on the hiway.

CRAP! Sorry Dark Knight, now I see you are asking about how many miles on a truck. I'm a tard.

I've got a TRD supercharger just waiting to go on. I plan to upgrade it with URD equipment. Have you noticed a difference with shifting in your auto trans. Do you plan to upgrade the valve body in the trans or do you think this is necessary with your additional boost? Just wondering I don't want to burn up a trans and its been suggested that an IPT valve body upgrade would be beneficial with the additional power of a SC.

Just curious, and I might've missed it within these 4 pages, how did you get your ECM reflashed? Did you tow it to the dealer, or drove it there? Etc?

Thanks

You could drive it gingerly to the dealer. No hauling ass.
