so a tune will be recommend??Generally speaking, a custom tune (requires unlocked PCM, tuner, and cost of tune), or a supercharger (or turbo(s))
You could make several (expensive) mods that can net you 15-25 HP such as bigger throttle body on a ported upper intake manifold port matched to the lower intake manifold. This alone will not get you much, and the tune required to take advantage of these changes will account for most of the gains.
You can increase the performance feel with a higher rear gear and/or a throttle pedal remapping device such as the pedal commander, but these will not add any horsepower.
You can get some great increases with forced induction (supercharger, turbo) and tune. 450-500 HP at the rear wheels, but it will cost you $6,000-$8,000 + labor and tuning.
Unfortunately Dodge left very little extra power available for the V6
i dont think i can do 91 tbh. i was thinking about getting tires n wheels too.Recommended is tough. Can I recommend spending $800+ to get 15-25HP IF you always run 91 to 93 octane gas? Too pricey for the gain for me, but you'd have to decide.
If you decided to go that route, you'd need your PCM unlocked, or purchase a 2nd unlocked one. You'd need to decide on which tuner (Diablosport or HP Tuners). This would depend on whether you just want to run a preset canned tune, or pay to have a tuner send you custom tunes (generally requires data logging to get the tune optimized).
I think you get a nice bump you can feel, but at a cost that is an individual thing.
those 305 on the backs looks amazing! any mods you have done to ur car to increase horsepower besides the tires?I run 17x7 fronts and a 15x10 rear but use to have a 17x9.5.
The 17x7s and 17x9.5s Racestars with summer (235) front tires and an cut 40lbs off. Thats 40 pounds of rotational weight. Some old pictures with 17s all around:

careful with the whee and tire upgrade. You do not want to replace what you have with anything heavier. Every extra pound of unsprung weight (weight not supported by the suspension) is like 4 extra pounds of regular dead weight.i dont think i can do 91 tbh. i was thinking about getting tires n wheels too.
should i just take the rear seats n spare tire out??careful with the whee and tire upgrade. You do not want to replace what you have with anything heavier. Every extra pound of unsprung weight (weight not supported by the suspension) is like 4 extra pounds of regular dead weight.
in other words, replacing the wheels and tires with a set that is, say, 15 lbs heavier per corner would be like throwing a 60 lb back of rocks in the trunk to carry around.
Remember, weight is the enemy of acceleration - the more weight you have, the slower you go.
every pound counts...especially on a low torque, high geared setup like you have.should i just take the rear seats n spare tire out??
like i won't my car to accelerate off the line fast, win more dig races.every pound counts...especially on a low torque, high geared setup like you have.
Will you be able to tell a difference in acceleration if you remove the spare and rear seats? Eh, maybe, maybe not. The car will accelerate more quickly, but it may only be visible in a quarter mile race or 0-60 mph run.
Weight reduction is cumulative. Every pound you can drop is good. Every pound you add is bad. Every pound of unsprung weight is bad x 4.
That should be your mantra if you want to make that car faster.
what would u recommend me to increase horsepower for my v6?I ran both my V6 Challengers sans the spares to save weight, and just carried a plug kit and 12v air compressor in the event of a flat.
once I got the Hemi, I kept the spare for the first year and a half and 60K miles, plus the plug kit and compressor.
I’m mo longer Running with the spare since I never used it. I use that space for emergency kit and extra clothes.
blow outs happen, but not very often.
flats happen much more often, and can be taken care of with a plug kit and 12v air compressor, with a total weight of about 3 lbs...vs 25+ for the spare and jack
if you are going to race it against other vehicles, you will have to go with a super charger, turbo, or nitrous to really win.what would u recommend me to increase horsepower for my v6?
