I was just wondering how flexible the 3.5 V6 is and if anyone had any experience
i.e mods, internal work, and how strong it is. Anyone know if i can modify a supercharger or create a custom twin turbo setup. Any cams on the market for this motor? if so how hard is it to replace.

Why do i want the V6? because i cant afford the hemi, and i like the V6 after driving my friens G35 sedan with the V6 and it was cool.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

John, check out the Prowler guys. Paxton has a kit for the 3.5L and there's another shop that does twin turbos for the 3.5L. The 3.5 is a STOUT engine and can handle boost.

I looked on the paxton site and they have NOTHING for the 3.5

Does anyone remember the name of that company that has the supercharger for the 3.5, or the twin turbo kit for the 3.5?

I don't get it. You can't afford the HEMI, but can afford the $5k+ to slap on a supercharger or turbo, including "internal work"...:confused:
A Charger SE + $5,000 in engine work is still cheaper than an R/T.

Yeah, but I put that $5,000 as a very low estimate. I dare you to find a shop that'll do all the internal mods plus a TT set-up for that much. With labor, I can actually see that being closer to $10,000.

I don't mean to tell him what to do, but I just don't see the point of starting with the V6 when you want performance as your goal.

Oh shoot, I forgot...on the 300M boards a while ago, there was some mention that STS Turbo was working with a few of the members to make a turbo setup reality...

5000 is a low estimate.

even if the supercharger were 5k, youd end up with an engine that will not last as long as that of an R/T, and possibly a lot of voided warranty

When I worked for dodge, the motor would eat water pumps and timing belts...otherwise everything seemed ok. Think long and hard before you buy the V6 if you want performance...otherwise, you may kick your self for it down the road. Just my .02

Check out www.idaautomotive.com they built a twin turbo prowler that made 305 h.p. at the wheels...you have to contact paxton directly on the s/c's for the 3.5...

I want the V6 because its something different and its a challenge.

Plus, you dont see many s/c or tt'd chargers or magnums out there.

i want to buy the charger with the 3.5 v6, does anyone know if this v6 can burn rubber ? or do i need to get the gas guzzleing hemi. i mostly do only city driving and the hemi goes beyond my budget.

The Hemi can not burn rubber from a standstill by just flooring the gas. You have to shut off the ESP system and power brake, at which time you can do a really good burnout. You can do a burnout in the 3.5 the same way, but it won't be nearly as impressive.
