Garry Sooley of Belleville, Ontario, has been working on his 2016 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack for the past year and a half—only during spring and summer because it’s stored in the winter for waxing (about 60 coats of wax on Ruby).
Garry, how did you become a gearhead?
My motivation for modifying my cars is simply that I enjoy it and like dressing them up for mine and others’ enjoyment. I got started many years ago with my first performance car, which was a 1975 Camaro.
I also modified my 2005 Infinity G35 and 1980 Corvette, which I gave a brand new interior, including seats, carpet, new gauges with a new dash, as well as new exterior paint with flames.
Now I’m working on my 2016 Charger. At my age now, I’m starting to slow down, but it keeps me happy and moving.
Tell us more about your Charger R/T Scat Pack- what’s going on under the hood?
Under the hood, I added the original Billet Tech Catch Can, which slows down and filters oil that ends up in the intake and combustion chambers. I also added a front strut bar; a Charger fuse box cover with perforated sides and a cover plate with an etched bee design; a K&N cold air intake system; and a polished fuel rail cover with “392 Hemi” lettering.
Inside, I added a red starter button. My 20-inch wheels are by Replika.
What are your favourite upgrades? What are you planning on upgrading next?
My three most favourite mods in order are: the Firehawks Indy tires and rims, the Zauto Tazer, and the rear window louvre.
I love the sound and upgrading the engine bay. I’m planning to get a Borla exhaust system soon for my next mod.
We love hearing about your modifications! Thank you for sharing them with us!
