Hi everyone!

I am new to the forum and just wanted to get your opinion. I recently bought a black 06 charger sxt. Its all stock except for my black dice so far. I would like to get an exhaust system, a CAI, a predator computer chip, and window tint. Have any suggestions for what brands and what has worked for you?

Oh man, this is a pretty broad question! Well for starters, take a look around the V6 section and the rest of the forum for ideas. There are tons of threads to go through that answer this question.

To help narrow it down, click on the link in my signature about Comprehensive V6 Performance. That gives you all the tid bits about what you can do with your car performance wise. It's also at the top of the V6 section.

For looks that's up to you, you want clean no badge or crazy wild, the forum's list of vendors have everything you need to get started and make your car yours.

And welcome to the forums! :beerchug:

good start of a list so far. the predator is a hand held programmer. chips dont exists on these cars. you reprogram the ECU in most all cars 1996-2012+ ;)

Intakes....basically pick which ever you think looks pretty and run with it. theres not much difference between whats on the market. with exhaust, depending on where you live, stainless may be more advantageous than regular. obviously salted and snowy areas, stainless would have the advantage. best advice, get something made for your car. not just something off another car that was restrictive there and will be restrictive on yours. theres plenty of options out there from a rear end section kit from blastin bobs to a full cat back from zoomers, magnaflow, flowmaster, etc... personally i'd go with a kit. theres alot of exhaust places that will do a total hack job, so unless the place locally is credible, a kit will give you smooth mandrel bent exhaust, not exhaust with clamped and crimped pipes that flow worse than stock. mandrel bent pipes have their advantages by far. it took me a while to learn that lesson. ;)


I'll ask the same thing i've always been asked....


what are YOUR plans to do with the car.????


Reason, there are so many that get new cars, regardless or make or model, and just add this or that, or which ever forum member says "you gotta add this!!!!"

and many of the times, its parts and wasted money NOT conductive to what THEIR goals really were, but to what the other forum members goals were.

If i were you, i'd take a few days, sit back and think about your plans for your car and what you eventually wanna do:
show car
drag racing
autoX
road course
efficient daily driver
etc...

all can be done, and dont let anyone on the forums deter you from making your car whatever you want it to be. over the last 130K+ in this car, i've had MANY road trips, road courses and a few autoX's that people on the forums questioned cause it wasnt a v8. F-em...Some of those same people still dont do jack with their cars but add $$$$ in new performance mods yearly, take pictures to post on here, and never have seen a track of any sort. they barely drive their cars at all to begin with even though its always mod after mod.

so mainly...have fun with your car, make it what you want it to be. its so much easier when you have a goal in thought, than just float through with no direction ;)

Thanks man! This was really helpful! I think I might just get a kit from blastin bobs. I just want a deeper growl from the v6. Have a buddy with an impala ltz that had dual exhaust and it sounds great. I mostly plan on it just being a daily driver but I would love to take it to a track if I get the chance.

I got the Blastin bob's 14db....def noticable growl. gave my 3.5 a nice sound. Id recommend getting a diablo tune. I got the 93 octane tune and there is a bit of a difference in speed, mostly due to the higher quality gas your puttin in. Also Air intake is also a good route to go. These are basically the more cheaper things to do to improve your charger. of course there are much more expensive things like headers or other performance mods but if youre starting out thats what id recommend.
