Thumbs down 2nd Gen 2.7 Concorde owners - your best performance mods?

Hi everyone...

I'm a newbie here, just found the forum today. I've owned my 2000 Concorde since Nov 99, and now that my extended warranty is up, I'd like to do some performance mods to get some more power off the line. It's all stock as of now, so any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

Hey welcome aboard! Common performance mods are: K&N Drop in air filter, or a K&N Cold Air Intake, Flowmaster dual exhaust. Just to name a few.

Works about as well as a 'tornado fuel saver' IMO.

Synthetic oil...and regular oil changes...may not give you an increase in performance but may keep your engine running.

OUCH! That's cuttin deep!

Yes, new wheels, one of Joe's intakes, maybe even exhaust... Lots of little things add up to a nice ride!

Heh, yeah, I forgot in my poking fun that there are some easy nice things that you can do right away. Rims and tires can be lighter and look much better. An easy upgrade over stock steelies.

Try inflating tires to max, synthetic oil, intake, and / or trade it on a 3.5 motor trep
