:bandit: How do I say this I want the 300C be faster BUT I still want the 300C to be just that A 300C SMOOTH, QUIET, LUXURIOUS AND DROP DEAD GORGEOUS :yo: Thinking headers only, chip stage 1, springs with sway bars, 20" wheels and K&N drop in filter.
Wondering how much improvement to expect :squint: ?

From what I've read I would guess 40 hp. Headers are the best HP for the buck. Good Luck

ummmm 2 words:
super charger


if you got the pockets for that id say its the most bang for your buck. although you could always go the headers+intake+exhaust+tuning chip route.

however, i think im gonna hold off a little myself, as more and more aftermarket 'goodies' are hitting the market, especially with SEMA done and over with.
that twin turbo kit thats underworks in the performance forum sounds appealing, but im still not sure what im going to do.
personally the 5.7 is good enough for me just to get my jollies..
now for those who are more in tune with the track and racing scene, you can never have enough power.

For me the 5.7 is plenty fast, if you do mods, beware of the noise factor. You want the same smoothness etc. which will not be there with headers or exhaust mods though it will be more powerful, S/C whine is very sweet IMO though knowing me I would tire of it in two months like my Volant intake. Keep in mind, many people spend lots-o-dollars on HP mods to gain mere fractions in 0-60 and 1/4 mile times. Most major car mags profile various kits which often look good but have very marginal speed gains. If you really want to go fast, the best bang for the buck is to get an SRT8.

Yeah, you'll lose a lot of the luxurious quiet and smoothness when you start adding speed parts. It's hard to have the one and keep the other. To get the best of both worlds, for the money, the SRT-8 is the way to go, IMO.
