Have you ever looked under the hood of an Intrepid?SPOOK R/T said:The same motor but the intake and exhaust are different for sure. Being the motor sits north south for RWD Chargers. And not east west like the LH's Intrepids FWD. There might be other small changes too??
intrepidrtman said:hmmmm...thats interesting....so, now, a question 340 duster...is the motor in the new chargers/magnums the same as our 3.5 liter h.o. motors, for example, my 2000 r/t motor? just wondering...I'm interested in either a new magnum or a charger in the near future, and now u said that, just makes me wonder...thankx
I would worry about clearance issues, especially with the plenum on it, the Intrepids was designed keeping in mind the shape of the hood. Also the LX cars use electronic throttle control, need provisions for that. Better just stick with an LH motor since your not getting anymore power out of the 05-06 3.5L.Macspeed2k said:So is the 3.5 engine in a charger the same as in a Intrepid? if it is I want to do a swap

Specials had only a gain of 5 horses over the standard 300M which were rated at 250 hp in 2004. I think when the "M's" came out in 99 they were at 253 horses.D76G12 said:Why would you want to ...?
2003-04 Intrepid SXT ... 250 HP/250 TQ
2003-04 300M ... 255 HP/250 TQ
2003-04 300M Special ... 258 HP/250 TQ
2005-06 LX 3.5L engine ... 250 HP/250 TQ
All the LH cars above have the same exact engine (though the M Special does have a different exhaust) - it's the programming that makes the difference.
But figuring a way to get that 5-speed tranny in a Trep might be worth while ...
Yeah - I should have checked my numbers more closely before posting. It was the TQ that was 258 for the Special. And you're right - the first 300M's were rated at 253 HP/250 TQ.dakotaquadsport said:Specials had only a gain of 5 horses over the standard 300M which were rated at 250 hp in 2004.
