    I've been reading about these curious if people are still getting these packages installed? Anyone getting good results from these?

    I know of a couple people that went this route to keep warranty, but I don't recall seeing anyone go up to stage 2 or 3.

    Just had the stage 1 installed yesterday. Loving it! I immediately felt the acceleration difference. The catback isn't loud and annoying like some aftermarket exhausts, but definitely gives it a mean deep growl. I noticed a huge difference when starting it remotely leaving the dealer and my wife immediately said it sounded way different when I got home. It has a nice growl to it when you accelerate and a nice hum when cruising and when it down shifts. Drove it over an hour after installed and had no drone.

    The intake adds a bit of a growl when you give it gas, but leaves a bit more to be desired sound wise. Looks great popping the hood and seeing that mopar logo and massive intake, though.

    Be warned, the installation isn't cheap, it came out to just under 6 hours of installation. Mopar.com has a 10% coupon on their site for most dealers which helped out some. Hard to tell the difference on gas this soon, but I've read some get an increase of 1mpg after.

    Side note- The dealership I took it to was completely ignorant of what to do, they even opened the installation manuals for it. They didn't apply the certification sticker under the hood (tried to keep it) and I had to actually ask for my old rt exhaust and intake after they told me it should be all in my trunk, so make sure you check that you have everything you want back or isn't included before you leave.

    Overall I'm very satisfied. Steve white motors has a discounted rate for the packages and they price match/beat and they have a promo code to add on top of that. Dealerships gona dealership so if you go that route for warranty purposes, be prepared for the eye gouging.

    Nice write up! Sounds like a nice plug-and-play option. Planning on doing the other Stages at all? I think this is a good option for those that want the mods to actually add potential value to the vehicle for a re-sale or trade-in down the road. I've heard that this runs 1,500 to 2,000 with parts and labor, did you find this to be true?

    Well the fine print of the stage 2 says it makes our cars non street legal, but I'm curious as to how strict inspections are on them.. so I'm a bit sceptical.. I'm torn on keeping my R/T or eventually bumping up to an actual scat pack. If I decide to keep it I may get the other stages eventually.

    Yep, I went this route for upgrades primarily for the warranty, but also for resale value if I ever go that route.

    I'll message you regarding the pricing.

    Almost any performance mod will not add any value when it comes time to sell or trade. Only those folks who desire to have more power than stock will be willing to spend a few dollars extra. That includes the MOPAR scat packages 1, 2 and 3. A dealer for sure will not increase the value of the trade if you have all three stages. You will get the book value based on condition of the ride and mileage

    Also, almost any performance mod is labeled "not for street use" or "for off road only". This covers the sellers butts when it comes to emissions testing. A Cam, CAI, Heads and Short tube headers should pass almost any emissions test. Do not know about California but I know of a lot that have blowers on there cars out there will no problems passing emissions. (CARB certified for CA)

    I've kind of pieced my Stage 1 pack together ala Frankenscat Pack.. I have a Dynomax cat-back exhaust, Airaid CAI, and bought the PCM alone, directly from Steve White Motors. I still have yet to install the PCM, but that should be done by the end of next month.
