There’s a good reason why the Dodge Challenger is one of the best-selling muscle cars in America. With hundreds of horses under the hood and torque that borders on the absurd, it overpowers rivals like the Ford Mustang Shelby and Chevy Camaro.
So, maybe you found a great deal on one, and you’re wondering how you can trick out your new (or new-to-you) ride. We’ve got some must-have mods for your muscle car.
Why Not Add a Dodge Package?
Dodge Challenger performance packages are great! We love the OEM options that are available. But many drivers prefer making more granular mods and may not want to pay for many cosmetic features when they want a performance tweak.
Luckily, there are many quality OEM and aftermarket parts and accessories available, so you can make more efficient use of your money by prioritizing your mods.
Add a Breath of Fresh Air
Like we run better when we can breathe easily, a cold air intake helps your Challenger run better. Taking in more cool air aids your engine’s combustion, which helps it use fuel more efficiently and increases horsepower.
Upgrade to High-Performance Brakes
One of the things we love most about the Dodge Challenger is how fast it is on the quarter-mile. The standard brakes are just fine for your daily commute, but if you like to spend time on the track in your Challenger, consider upgrading to bigger, high-performance brakes.
How Low Can You Go?
What could be cooler than the Challenger’s low, wide, imposing stance? Having it crouch even lower!
Swap out the suspension coils for lowering springs, and not only will your Challenger look even more aggressive, but its lower center of gravity improves handling and helps your car stay composed in tight turns.
Announce Your Arrival
The Challenger turns heads anywhere you go, and its standard exhaust emits a pretty satisfying growl. But there are some aftermarket options available that will make your hair stand on end.
But that’s not the only reason to upgrade the exhaust system. A high-performance exhaust adds substantial torque and horsepower to your Challenger and can help improve its fuel efficiency.
Protect Your Floor from Spills
Even with cupholders, every open soda can, every trip through the drive-thru puts you closer to the inevitable spill. You could institute a “No Food or Drinks” policy for your car.
But that doesn’t take into account everything else that you track into your car. All the oil, dirt, mud, water, and road salts can wreak havoc on your Challenger’s carpet.
Keep your Challenger’s carpet in showroom condition by upgrading to weather (and spill)-resistant floor liners.
Turn Your Challenger into Your Dream Car
Whether you want to make your Dodge Challenger a terror on the track or you want to add some finishing touches, there are hundreds of aftermarket and OEM options available. Consult with your Dodge dealer about putting your signature on your Challenger.
