PostSubject: Decisions decisions   May 21st 2011, 9:51 pm

Ok so I am trying to figure out my next big mod. I have two things I want to do but funds will only allow me to do one. One is to visit inertia for some performance goodies and a simple show mod. The other is a extensive body mod which would change the look dramatically and a small shot of performance. Over the rest of the year I will be gathering parts for either project just having a hell of a time deciding. What are your guys inputs? Ultimate decision is mine but value others opinions especially CAMM.

Ok I'm thinking either get cam and performance heads plus the srt fascia swap. Or do the 300 swap with grip fascia with just cam and some giggle juice.

Okay bro here is my take on it. What are you more intrested in doing, racing or showing???
When I first bought my Charger I planned on building it to race. I did a cam, headers and other things until the show bug bit me.
Ever since then I have did pretty much nothing but show mods. Its a tough decision because I like both your ideas, so only you can answer the question, what would you rather do show or race?????

That's the problem I like both. Tom got me addicted on the racing aspect but I don't think I could ever touch what his addiction has driven him too. Then on the other hand I love showing and want the 300 front. Tough decision I need to do a little more research on paint so I can compare the price of the two and really go from there.

Personally if you are not wanting to spend money over and over and over i say do the show mods the racing mods will never end ever.... you will break things you will want to go faster and having an 05 magnum you will eventually need to to pull the entire motor to forge everything so you dont keep blowing up...or put in something that is bullet proof like an arrington stroker... $$$$$ i have already convinced myself that once my car is done and i am up and racing that i will get one maybe 2 seasons out of it and then it will be done and i will have to rebuild or replace my motor. not to mention all of the drive componants that will need to be rebuilt or replaced as well... so you really need to think in long terms...if you are going to race there is no need to do the fasia mods as you are racing it if you go into a wall your insurance wont cover it anyways...

That is what I was thinking really would like to have more power but I think the current set up is good. Just be nice to have some more avaiable. Show mods would be great and would really set my Maggie apart. Ill make a descion soon and let everyone know when I'm ready to reveal.

Brian is dead on, Nick. My car is very close to the end of the parts train it takes to build a race car. I could have had a 1700 hp motor in it for all I have spent so far. I don't even want to think about how much the motor is going to be. I wouldn't do it any other way, just saying. I've dreamed about doing this since I was young. I couldn't do it while the kids were growing up. I have put much thought into doing this. I think that's what you have to do too.

I'm with Shawn, after I attended my first show I was addicted. Eem if I didn't win a trophy,having all those people around your car is more rewarding to me. I am going for show more than once I have done what I think makes unique then I'll start on performance .....

You can do both as long as you don't take either to the extreme. The Lady has taken 15 trophies in shows and has done a lot of passes on the strip as well as a road course track day or two. No reason a show car can't be fast or a race car show worthy. I don't think I'll ever win any trophies at the track but it's fun to run her now and then. I know I will never get her to the show level Shawn has achieved but I love doing shows win' lose or draw.

I think I've made my descion and am going to do the 300 swap with some custom aspects to make it my own. I might sneak a cam in there as well. Never know what I'm up to.

just make sure its that grip 300 front end. the regular 300 front end would be a hell of a downgrade in my opinion.

i like the magnum front end on a 300 but not the other way around. super T's car looks amazing with the 300 grip bumper though.

^^x2

But to throw out an opinion....I've always like the 300 front end with the Grip on it. Other than that, I think Shawn hit it right on the head with you gotta decide what's more important right now.
