Default Chrysler 300C upgrades

I'm looking for a site/company that has huge power upgrades for the Chrysler 300C. When I say huge, I mean 150hp or more.

Anyone know of such a place?

You could always go with a turbo charger and or maybe find computer reprogrammer. Then always exhuast work. I don't know how tough the engines in that car. The other thing is chysler isn't know for tranny'*. You would most like have to upgrade the tranny if adding that much power. What is your budget for the project

Jet just released both a Stage 1 and Stage 2 Chip for the 300C/Magnum. I'd contact them as a baseline.

They have a Mercedes tranny. I don't know why but i'm actually starting to like them. Not so much the C but the SRT-8. Can you believe you can get 425hp for $38K. I'd really like a STS-V in about 5 or so years but with a $77K base price, yikes! The SRT-8 is almost $40K less with nearly the same performance and nice big size. 300Cforums.com can help ya.

Yup. I wish this was 97'. Ser 2 L67'* where darn near king of the road back then. A Mustang GT couldn't touch it. I just need to mod for now. I will never gid rid of the LSS, just have an SRT-8 as a second car.
