Hello everybody, first I want to apologize if this post already has a thread going and whatnot. I've never posted anything on a forum like this, I really don't know how to use it.
With that said, I've just paid my 2019 Dodge Challenger RT stars and stripes edition off. I am looking to dump about 15 to 20K into the motor, suspension, exhaust etc. I barely drive the car, it only has 12,800 mi on it. Bought it as a trophy but now since it's paid off I really want to invest into my fun and having a super fast car.
My question is what route I should go when doing upgrades? I hear a lot of good stuff about ProChargers, twin turbos etc. And no I don't give a **** about the warranty. I really want to build this car up so I have something to give to my son when I'm dead.
Like I said at the beginning of the post I am looking to spend anywhere in between 15 to 20K on these upgrades. I would like to keep up with a hellcat if that is even possible? Always done my own car repairs ever since I was a teenager but whatever is recommended will be done at a shop because that type of work is well above my knowledge.
No I am not buying a scat pack or a hellcat, Don't want to. Have a perfectly good car and platform here that even after the 20K I'd be sitting around 54K total expense for the vehicle. Much cheaper than a scat pack or hellcat. Plus I love my car.
20K might not be enough to upgrade to that point but that's what I have to play with. And I'm very open to spending more money on the car once I save up another 20K. I am 45 and looking to retire around 52. So I don't mind a project that I can work on daily.
So basically I want to know what to upgrade and how to upgrade from somebody who knows what they're doing. I feel like if I just take it to a tune shop and ask them to do what I'm asking you guys to help me with they will just **** me over. Especially when they realize how much money I am prepared to spend. Any knowledge or insight is very much appreciated. Thank you guys in advance and I do apologize if I am posting this in the wrong forum or if the thread already exists and whatnot.
Most importantly, I hope all of you reading this have a very prosperous 2023!
