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.Oh ok, yes i am in indiana but I will be in New York next year. If hemi not able to do that but does 3.5L still good?
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.Ah I see. But I like Intrepid than 300m but 300m still look nice. Also I heard many many many intrepid have problem engine, mine too...I wonder 3.5L still ok to go but do I able to buy new 3.5L or can clean up and rebuild 3.5L engine?
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.really? 2.7L is very bad engine? Ok I will look for R/T, but what about ES?
