whats really good people i have been hitch hikeing on this forum for months now and i just thought it would be time to reg up. :)

well i wanted the hemi but it was not in my price range so i have a basic touring 300 with the 3.5 and i wanted to know if there are any plans for a super chager for this engine and would there be any problems haveing a SC on it.

i just orderd the stage 1 jet chip for my girl and i cant wait to see how she responds to it. but other then that it is the first thing i orderd i have a lot of plans for her just like a lot of you here on this forum but it takes time.

I like to work inside out so im startin with engine mods then interior then my exterior.

by the way this is my LIC# MY3HUNGE

For the money that you would spend on a supercharger kit, you could have bought a 300c.

Unfortunately, I can pretty much guarentee you won't be seeing many engine/performance mods for the 3.5. :/

Ah, V8 snobbery isn't just a Ford thing. Just like with the V6 Mustangs, the aftermarket will come around. The sheer numbers of 3.5L-powered 300s and Chargers will create a market for a blower kit. It'll probably be a couple years off, but it will definately happen. There are a good half-dozen kits available for 3.8L Mustangs...

Oh, and it will be cheaper than the Touring/300C price differential and the blown 3.5L will be faster than a stock 300C.

They never came out with anything for all the 3.5L in the 300M's and Intrepids, which were produced from 1999 on. I have my doubts that anything will come out. I have a 2001 300M and a CAI and Borla are about the extent of the mods available.

There is a very good reason why no real engine mods have been produced for the 300M/Intrepid/Concorde/LHS... The transmission. If you look under the hood of these cars, you will find a FWD car with a LONGITUDINALLY mounted engine!

While this drivetrain configuration all but eliminates torque steer, it is an abomination that is too delicate and problematic for the aftermarket to deal with.

that is true about the aftermarket but it was due to the trans limit now with some five speeds on 3.5 as on the charger you will see blowers because the five speed can handle the blower of an 3.5 but i had a 300m also a 2002 300m special to be exact and it needed more power but alas it had no mods.

It can be done, but if I remember correctly the 3.5 has 10.4:1 compression which makes your boost level 6psi to 8psi max. Intercooled that would net you about as much power and torque as the hemi.

However, the tuning and reliability issues you are going to have will end up costing you a lot of money in extra safety devices that aren't typically included with most off-the-shelf kits and dyno tuning isn't cheap.

Personally, if I were you I'd think about selling your car and buying a used C. The cost will be about the same depending on options.
