Haha, that is what they, Chrysler, wants us to beleive ain't it? Well, maybe vs. NA. But a HEMI vs. L67 Ser2 will do some serious fighting and I mean SERIOUS fighting, stock vs. stock. JUST look at SSuperchargedEI'* stock time vs. a 300C stock time. I'd rather buy a new Impalla SS vs. a 300C. That way I know I'll make 100K.

BonneMeMn needs to trade up for something more "extraordinary" and "exciting".



HUD + Supercharger should solve both problems

Ok, you have heard about the hemi. Have you seen one or driven one?

It'* a LOT of hype. A LOT!

To be truly fair, look at a Chrysler in the mid 90'* when the Bonnies (in my mind) were in the middle of their peak. Absolutely no comparison on power or features.

Now compare the 5.7L to a 3.8L Hmmm?? Interesting though...even us 10 year old cars could either take it or give it a serious workout. And if you compare current options vs what we had 10 years ago they are still missing a bunch of cool stuff.

my brother and i test drove a both a 2.7 v6 and the 5.7 300'* back before there was any hype about these cars. they were both fully loaded save for the fact that one had the 6... the interior was hott on both of them. the v8 felt marginally quicker than my car and his ultra. we both agreed to that. it was also MUCH quieter and a more smooth powerband. if the v6 wasnt so uber slow he would have settled for trading his ultra in on the spot. they wanted 27k for the v6 (had 31 miles) and 33.7k for the hemi (had 56 miles). great experience, its the main reason im on here harping about the 300 all day...

So following your guy'* advice i should attempt to sell my car (would have to demod it first i bet) find an SSEi in worse condition for more money, start using premum, have to fix all the thing i've already done to my car, and heavier, all for the 1/4-1/2 second difference in the 1/4 mile? Problem is i'm still stuck with an autotragic FWD car.

If i'm going to upgrade, i'm going to upgrade. I'd want something made to perform

A HUD isn't exciting, unless yours has a G Meter built into it from the factory DO i like my car? I've attempted to correct some problems i have with it. I just lust after a higher power.
