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?

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

only difference would be the 6.1.
but its possible to make it sound kinda like a v8 no? with the right exhaust?

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

Would any of u guys know about how much would it be?

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

Come on, whats the point? You know you want the Hemi. Don't be a poseur, buy the SRT.

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!

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.
