People will pick what they have.

But maybe 2.7 can save you a little gas?

Define performance.

In the narrow world of drag racing. No brainer. 3.5L. Many members including myself have ran in the 15's with the 3.5L.

2.7's are dogs in a drag race but has anyone raced one from a roll?

I've ran into 2. A co worker's and a rental. Both got their heads kicked in on a drag race but from a roll on all I saw was Intrepid taillights.

If by "performance" you mean developing solid relationships with your local engine rebuilder and junkyard, then no contest - 2.7 all the way

For the rest, 3.5 HO might be a little better choice...

with my 2.7 I have a good MPG and win some racers... vs a focus ZX or that shit... camaro V6, mustang V6 (auto both), avenger, 4runner and i win all.

2.7 problematic but funny.

Actually, personally I think the Magnum 3.5L would win, but hey.

its the gearing of the 2.7L. SO its not the engine.

Take a special vs any 2.7L and you will see the results

So ya its the 3.5HO FTW.

The 2.7L is just too much of a headache and i would be deathly scared to drive one after all of the reported problems. Even if Chrysler claims that they fixed the issue after 2000, you still see lots of treps going for 500$ with a blown 2.7L.

I think my 3.5 H.0. is pretty quick for how much car it has to lug around.

the 3.5HO is quite the beast.

0-60mph at around 7.1-7.4 seconds (reported) is pretty decent for a full size family sedan in 2004. Newer hondas now pull around the top 6sec mark but they are much newer, lighter, better engines.

Im pretty happy with the design of the 3.5HO and best of all "Maintenance free!!!"
