There is a low mileage es intrepid on halifax kijiji for $700 that needs a 2.7(or swap a 3.5).

No rust sunroof autostick car!

Unless you will have to REALLY beat on this car to get what you want (and somehow will NOT have to do the same to the next version), you are better off starting with a car you really like. A car that can't be driven on the road doesn't sound like a keeper.

im not in halifax i dont care about auto stick since it all has to come out and whats the fun of doing a 2.7 or 3.5 swap besides this car already looks like a beast out of hell so a v8 would suit it well

fuckin rights man ! this car looks like a beast out of hell so the v8 would suit it lol i got the old power train out im not sure what v8 i should use im leaning towards a old carbed hemi since it would be easy install i could go all the way and go 2010 5.7 hemi fuel injected im not sure yet i really am trying to avoyed installing a 318 since there are a few 318 intrepid out there and i dont want to go chevy 350 how ever if i went fuel injected hemi this project would be a long ass project so dont count on that lol my next step is to beff up the front end i took out the exhaust so the exhaust tunnel is perfect for a drive train i have to take the gas tank out and swap it with a fuel sell in the trunk the cell would go where the spare tire goes pics are coming !!

To make this build truly impressive, go with a 5.7 Hemi out of an LX car. That would be the best way to go IMO.

there is a 2009 r/t charger at my local wreckers it is hit in the side post and fliped over ill go this week and see if i can get it as a whole car i would have to do a complete swap of the lx wiring into the treps wiring to make it possible because i want every thing to work in the car not just for it to start i want it to look like it was supposed to be there and if any one els noticed the cars exhaust tunnel looks so purfect just like it was ment to have a drive train in there
