    I'm new to the forum and I'm looking to increase the performance of my 3.6L engine as far as responsiveness and initial pick up. I can't afford the 5.7L Hemi so that's not an option. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum!

    What kind of money are you looking to spend, because that would really dictate what you can do. I picked up my 2013 300 Touring with the Pentastar about 8 weeks ago. So far I've done custom exhaust and an intake, which has added an increase. The next step for me is tuning the car (Looking at DiabloSport).

    I'm in Canada so these would be Canadian prices, but so far I've spent:

    Custom exhaust (removal of resonators, Magnaflow high-flow muffler, and dual Magnaflow double-wall tips - $450

    AirAid Intake - $280

    Diablosport - between $450-700 depending on Trinity or the more base touch-screen

    So like I mentioned, it really depends what you want to spend. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions! I'm still learning about my 300 but I'm really enjoying it!

    a good CAI (cold air intake) would run you about $270, in my preference, id go with K&N , they never disappoint.

    You have a couple great basic upgrades available to you but it really depends on your budget. A good air intake is usually your first choice, there are a lot of them on the market, RC2, K&N, Mopar (I have this one and love it) range of $200-$400, next step could be exhaust, range of $300-$900 depending on buying just mufflers or a full catback or custom. No headers available since the exh manifold is built into the head. Then you start looking at larger throttle bodies made by Fastman or 80 MM Overkill (I ordered this one), Overkill ported lower manifold $250 (ordered this too) 180* T-stat $60, Custom tunes to make it all work better together, Overkill (got this one too), Diablosport, Hemituner, HP Tuners and misc others range of $400-900. Then you can step up to superchargers or custom turbo kits but your looking at dumping at least another $6000-15000...

    So what's your budget?

    Is the Mopar intake good or better than the K&N?

    not really, there is a really good comparison in the sub forum. Mopar intake is just a generic air filter rename mopar, and you pay for the name.

    In the comparison, K&N had better gain, but it was not the best one. And new product came out since then.

    In my opinion, I would go for a DiabloSport Intune. It will provide a bit of power and tunability, but more importantly, it will allow you to adjust the pedal sensitivity for better response.

    I agree, I installed a k&n CAI on my 2013, and it's been well worth the money.

    I have a new concept I have engineered and put into play. I re routed the cold air intake and relocated it to the front tucked beside the radiator for Max fresh cold air. Been wondering y this is the first time I heard about it.. what's up with new upgraded fuel injectors for the 3.6
