about the only way you could make the needed power to win would be to add NOS.

Not even a chip or anything? How much do you think a new engine would cost?

I am guessing but I would think 6gs would be a good estimate.

Guess its time to start saving. In the mean time I will get some rims and a scoop so it just looks faster.

the hemi alone cost $7100. plus you'll need a trans, all electronic, exhaust, and a thousand other parts plus labor. it will end up costing you $60 grand to make a $30,000 car. not worth it....
NOS will cost about $650.

I agree, that engine is so anemic, I cant believe they even put it in that big of a car. Its lucky to get a Neon onto a busy freeway...LOL. You can find RT Hemis on EBay all the time. Most come with PCM, engine and tranny all together. Seen some less than $5,000 for all. You should be pretty fast then, 6 cyl has a lot bigger rear end gear than RTs.
