Hiya Folks,

My name is Shannon and I bought a loaded '06 SRT8 on eBay in Nov 2008. We had a bad eBay experience before (I bought a '99 Suburban that blew the motor on the way home), so my wife was very reluctant buying out of town again. However, this SRT8 had just 1800 miles, a clean carfax & is in mint condition, so I convinced my wife it'd be a perfect replacement for her aging '98 Malibu LS (heh heh). I picked up the SRT8, drove it to Austin late at night and went to bed.

Early the next morning, she drove it around the block with our two young kids & me in the back seat. Everyone was still in their PJs, playing with all the lux gadgets & giddy as Christmas morning when she chirped the tires shifting into 2nd. She steered it back home, parked and then closed the garage door right onto the hood. God I love that woman.

So our SRT8 has one minor "appearance mod" :i_rolleyes: I intend to upgrade performance beginning with air, exhaust & probably a Predator tune. Can anyone recommend a good performance shop in Central Texas?

What do you think? What mods would you suggest if you had a couple grand and new 2006 SRT8 to play with? I've been lurking here for a few weeks & really appreciate your contributions. What a great community!



Cheers!
Shannon

Welcome to the Z, Shannon. With $2K, I'd start with a cold air intake, a catback exhaust and a Predator programmer. Plus some body work to correct that new mod. :)

welcome to the Z from College Station

I would say you should contact Stu at Inertia (one of our supporting vendors) he is in your area. http://300cforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=113

If you looking for a good starter package of a CAI, exhaust, 180 tstat, and predator check out what Tbyrne has to offer http://300cforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=106

Also there is a great LX club in Austin, Capitol City Modern Mopar that you should check out
