Talking Howdy from Tucson, AZ

Excited Newbie ~

I am the proud new owner of a 2006 Charger R/T. 63,000 miles, Burgundy (Favorite Color!) w/ Black Racing stripes.....smokin!!

Bought 2 weeks ago ~

Any suggestions for modifications (on a budget of course), maintenance, anything?

Only current worry is a rubbing noise while driving straight when I hit about 20 MPH.......any suggestions on what this may be?

Thanks!

Thanks for the mod suggestions! I am soooo new at this, what are your suggestions for the type/ brand of new exhaust and where to get the correct tune-up (Dodge dealer I assume) I read that adding a K&N Cold Air intake is good - ????

I can see from the many posts that one can upgrade of modify just about everything on their pride an joy....

Thanks again for your suggestions ~

Welcome from Phoenix!
You have a lot of homework to do! Depends how loud you want your exhaust to be on which brand to get. There are a TON of CAI's to choose from as well. Good luck with your mods!
