Question New cool Intrepid

Next year or so, I decide to buy new Dodge Intrepid 2004 and then I want to make cool car like new rim, body, paint, light, rebuild engine, seat, and much more. I want change 2.7L to 3.5L engine. Where can I find place to do that??

If you are going to buy a 2004 why not start with one that already has the 3.5 so you dont need to convert it at all?

Better yet, why not get a 2004 300M special so a lot of the modifications you mention (HID lights, heated memory seats, etc) are already done?

I know a lot of good body shops, of course with them here in New England I dont think you will have much luck using them

As for the Hemi dream (yes, dream) don't count on it, you will need to replace every single drivetrain part and custom pretty much every mount. To say the least it isn't soemthing you would want to even consider. It would end up cheaper to buy a hemi Charger.

You are not going to find a shop able to put a Hemi V8 into an Intrepid and have it running without spending well over $10K

There are plenty of shops here who could handle that type of work (Miller race cars for one) but again what good is that going to do you since you are in Indiana?

Yes, a 3.5L will be good. A 5.7L Hemi isn't going to work without SERIOUS modification. It was tried by a member on here and the hood was too low. Like Joe said, you should just look for a 300M Special. Comes from the factory with all the goodies and a good amount of power.

3.5's are usually okay. It's the 2.7's you have to watch out for. If you like the Intrepid, find an Intrepid R/T.

I wouldn't call it a bad engine. You just don't know how the last owner took care of it. Regular oil changes with a 2.7 are a MUST. An ES is most likely a 3.2L. But an R/T or an SXT has the 3.5. Don't quote me on this, but I believe that the 3.2 and the 3.5 are very similar engines.
