Hey everybody! I drive a 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8. I'm a "photographer", learning a lot everyday and hope to learn more from this forum.

Here's one of my favorite shots I took of my car:

and here's what it looks like at the moment:

I always forget how awesome the Magnum looks, especially in dark colors. Welcome!

Nice stance on the second pic! Car looks great, Any mods besides lowering and 300 SRT-8 wheels? I ran with a Whipple Supercharged 300 SRT-8 and it was a handful to keep up with even with it's weight.

I would love to purchase one of these, it is a real shame they never came with a third pedal.... thumbs_down.gif

Oops, missed this, my bad. Right now just what you said. By the end of the month I'll have a 440 Stroker, 3.73 lsd rear, 1400hp axles, chromoly driveshaft, and Vossen CV3 wheels on it! I can't wait

I see you have a 2010 Porsche 911 Carerra C4S... drool3.gif

Nice... gotta love Vossen wheels. You doing a high comp 440 stroker or low comp with a power adder? What kind of numbers you looking for. You keeping the stock tranny or going manual or upgrade?

Stay around on the forum, it's great to have a new addition, and there is a great group of guys and some amazing photography on here.


The Porsche is my old man's but we both race it in an Open Track setting, but thanks for the compliment!

EDIT: Two Things!

One: Ditch the front plate... It will look a lot better

Two: Where in NY are you located, it is tough to tell by your pictures.... I am in North Jersey, and have a house upstate wondering if you're relatively close....

I think these will be a classic some day.

I bought a 2009 Legacy wagon, but I always kinda regretted not trying out the Magnum while it was around. There is something very sinister about a V8 station wagon, and Dodge was practically giving them away toward the end of production.

Hi comp, I'm gonna stay N/A. It's my daily driver and drag car on the weekend, so it takes a beating. I need it to last a little while lol. The motor as it sits now should put out about 550whp. Once I get a ported intake, tb, true cai, and full exhaust, I think I'll hit 600whp. Thats my goal. As for the trans, I'm going to get an upgraded trans, keep it auto.

I HATE the front plate, but i have to keep it because I get pulled over all the time for my tint and no front plate is just one more thing for me to get a ticket for haha

I live near Albany, parents live in Clifton Park. Where's your upstate house?

Seeing the looks on peoples faces when I hit the gas reminds why I bought this car lol. If you do decide to get one, check out LXForums, some amazing deals come up on there. Gotta get an SRT8 too! They're coming down in price now that all the new SRT cars are out.

I might consider it, but I think I'm done buying used daily drivers. Too many unknowns. I also need something that gets better than 10MPG. I had a Durango with the hemi V8 in it for three days and went though two weeks-worth of gas.

If I do buy a V8 wagon it's most likely going to be a Volvo 245 I drop a SBC or Mustang V8 in to. A fun sleeper project.
