Sold the Dakota R/T. AKA: What to do with $6500

Title says it all, sold my baby. No place to keep it inside and I was tired of it sitting outside deteriorating. So, you guys know the story of my Ram and where I'm at, what would you do with the mad money ? Stroker, boost ? 4.56s are on the short list with a locker and maybe a big brake upgrade. What else ? Did Hotchkis ever make a suspension upgrade for these, like the did the Dakotas ? So what do you think ?

I'm a bit leery of boost without forged bits inside. I was thinking nasty stroker. That is a compelling idea though. I'd still have $$ for fuel system upgrades etc.

I'm not boost guy, but seriously Poncho's Procharger is a great deal,@4000 your short block will be fine @6 lbs drive it around , take the other $2500 and start building a 392 for boost, you got the trans that will take it.

Now on the other hand........$6500 would build you a nice 420+ inch stroker
Mopar Performance P5153898: Gen III Hemi 6.1L Aluminum Block Semi-Finished Bore: 4.114" | JEGS $3900 not a bad starting point. if so inclined
Or how about
Hellcat or 6.4 BGE block for about $1500 depending on source,
K1 4.08 crank https://horsepowerdirect.com/product...CABEgKrxvD_BwE


We can spend $6500 by the end of the day........
