Do get a CAI, than perhaps a Predator hand tuner.

It's hard to say what the best mods are since most of them are individual preference. I would suggest to research the v6 specific forum for some mod ideas and choose a direction (theme) to go with. That will help you decide what is right for you.
The cat-back is a good start and would benefit by adding a CAI. With out getting in to serious engine work, the best bang for your buck when it comes to adding power is a tuner such as the Predator.
You might look in to some simple but functional mods like hood struts and an oil catch can.
I hope you find what you are looking for and we look forward to seeing your evolve.

Check out Maryland Speed or one of the other Vendors here for a package deal on a CAI and Predator Tuner. that would be best bang for your buck performance and cost wise. And try to resist the huge wheel change that lots of owners do because they really dog down a V-6 Charger. If you stay with some nice lightweight 20" wheels you will still look great and have decent performance with the CAI , Exhaust and the Tuner.
Good luck and welcome to the Forums! post some pic's of your ride!!

The answers to all of your questions are in this forum, you just have to search for them. Just remember that you can find 10 different answers to 1 question. For example, "which one is the best?" It's just like trying fat-burners, you just have to find the one that works best for you.

hood struts keep the hood up... the catch can catches some oil before it can get into your engine... a cat-back is an exhaust system either before or after the catalytic converters (cats) to the tips...

Welcome to the Forums! :wave:

Definitely head over to the V6 Specific forums, all your answers are there! ;)

Here's a whole bunch more ideas for you:
http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57312

I also highly recommend checking with MarylandSpeed for a CAI+ Predator Special! If they don't have one running now, they will later! Call them and ask! :bigthumb:

There's a LOT you can do with the SXT, so do more reading here, check out what some others have done, and start forming a plan. Go to some local Meet n' Greets if you can and see what others have done. That's also a great way to check out others' mods and see if you like them, before you buy them for your car.

Have Fun! :grin:

I thought the catch can was only of use on the HEMI engines - specific issue.
cat-back - is an exhaust system you bolt on from the catalytic converters back. Best advise is search the forums.

First u have to tell us what it is that you are going for like looks or performance, so u said u already have the dual exhaust so your best bet would be the mopar cold air intake and the predator, some nice 20s and the eibach pro kit...is your car mainly stock right now?

With basic mods your not going to get much in the way of performance with a V6 so might I suggest working on the show before the go. : ) check my sig...I pretty much did everything in that order that the mods are listed.

Welcome to the site.

That depends on your definition of "performance". ;)

After I got the engine breathing better, plus the Diablo tune, I worked on handling and some extra driver-training. My V6 "performs" fairly well on a road course now! :grin:

Not saying it'll outrun an SRT... unless it's raining. :laugh:
(Ask some of the guys on LXF about NJMP back in March!)
