1998 Dodge Intrepid Base: Lets make it faster.
Hey all, I am the owner of a '98 dodge intrepid. It's the base model with the 2.7L
I'll go ahead and add that my cousin is a highly trained and certified chrysler/dodge/jeep mechanic. We are replacing the water pump/timing chain within the next few weeks just to make sure it doesnt break on me and ruin my ride. Now, My friend has a Honda Prelude which he swears up and down is a racecar. its pretty slow, but i want to make sure my car can dust him on the track. What are some of the first modifications you all did to make your 'trep faster? New intake? that would only give about 5 hp. Im looking for cheap horsepower. While we are taking the engine down a ways im going to fix my burning oil problem as best i can by replacing the valve seals on the exhaust side at least (ill probably do both exhaust and intake actually, just to be sure.) Does anyone know how well this works to fix that?
Long story short, how can I make my '98 2.7L intrepid faster? I have tons of options, but i dont know which path to take.
