yeah it dosent have very good off the line take off but if you floor it after 30mph it will throw you back in the seat pretty good. oh yah i forgot to mention hes getting teinlowering springs too, i think its a 1.5 inch drop in front and 2 in the back. not bad for a family car to haul around him and his wife and 3 kids!!!! he went from a 2000 full size suburban getting 12 mpg at 140.00 a fill up to 27+ at 65.00 a tank and a lifetime powertrain warranty.

when i had the rental, i got great mileage with that engine...i also had a 2.7 charger for a while, but it was a REAL pig, and got worse mileage than the 3.5...and it only ran 17.20s...

the 3.5 gets 34+ on the innerstate. my uncle has a 300 with the 5.7 hemi and hes getting 27+ on the innerstate. so the milage really isnt that bad !!!!!!
