Parts or Engine?

i just wanted to ask, what would be better,and less expensive, making my v6 Laredo look like an srt8 w/o the HEMI? or just buying the srt8 itself?

Re: Parts or Engine?

itll be a lot cheaper to make your V6 look like an SRT8. But your gonna get varying opinions.....

Re: Parts or Engine?

i personally dont think any v6 can sound like a v8 but it will be a hell of a lot cheaper to mod the v6 than buy a srt

Re: Parts or Engine?

Id say your looking at $3-5000 to make it look cosmetically like an SRT8. The V6 sounding like the V8 will be a little tougher. The best I have heard IMO is Timmyb's exhaust, he followed my how to....took an full SRT exhaust, removed the suitcase muffler, added a Y pipe and then had it installed. There is a how to in the how to forum

define "better". less expensive will be making it a clone. check this thread out, includes the srt conversion parts. hope it helps in your decision!

Re: Parts or Engine?

I personally am not a fan of making a V6 look like an SRT8. At least start with a 4.7 V8 so it can have a decent exhaust. If not its all show no go. You can make any wk look like an SRT but you will never get the performance of a true SRT with just a body kit and you will never be able to show it off like and srt8 either.
