Default My 05 dodge Swagnum!

so I bought a winter car so I wouldnt have to submit my xB to another harsh snowy winter in New England. I got myself an 05 Dodge Magnum SXT. Its an all wheel drive, 3.5L V6 with about 80K miles on it. Not bad for an 05, IMO.

I didnt want to mod it initially... but I just can't have a stock car I guess.

I started out small, some LED tails...



Also ordered some blacked out headlight covers because my headlights look like crap to be honest... Got a pair of halos waiting in my living room too!



then I found an intake and catch can for cheap money so I bought those too





the last pic is without the catch can, I installed the catch can after the intake just because I wasnt 100% sure how to get the can installed, but I got it covered. Cant wait to get a few more engine dress up mods so this thing doesnt look so crappy.

exhaust is NEXT thought, this 3.5 can sound mean!

any suggestions are always welcome.

so far its been really good, Ive gone 250+ miles on this 1 tank and I still have 1/4 tank. Not bad if you ask me, but Im also not sure how big the tank is.

and I want 22s, but I will probably wait till next season or the season after for that. Got too much else going on to spend the cash on 22s.

yeah, that sounds about right. Im gonna run this till empty and see where I end up!

once I clean out my throttle body Im sure my gas milage will increase a bit since I bet in the 80k miles this thing has traveled its never been cleaned.

So phobic.....after you trick out your Magnum.....what winter car are you going to buy next? lol

You have modding disease....a serious condition that afflicts many of us....deadly on the wallet but you only live once and no car should remain stock!
