Thanks for the welcome! I love that only 500 of these cars were made and I own one of them! Just rolled over 1000 miles today!
I'm not as concerned about gas prices. I was expecting the bump there with a 5.7L V8. I am more worried about the longevity of the engine at those high RPM's on the highway. There's a lot of 75mph interstate in Texas.
Cold air is the first mod I will do. I have to pace myself, but I plan to add cat-back exhaust, an SRT8 deck lid spoiler, and either powder coat to match paint or black chrome the window trim and foglight bezels to give the car a totally blacked out look.
Personally, I like the blue pinstriping. I think it is a subtle way to distinguish the MOPAR '12 from the average 300. I intend to have another clear coat added over my pinstripes so they don't peel.
Depending on how it might affect the warranty, I may look into getting a custom tune. Should be able to improve MPG and with the power gains.
