Hello bdoyle and welcome to the forum. I am a fairly new owner of a 2005 Magnum RT purchased with only 15,234 miles on it. I have had it for a little over 2 months and I am thinking of some upgrade also. As a stock Hemi, it is extremely quick, but we all want to go faster. My budget is tight right now, and as for starters, I am going with a CAI first. I was thinking of buying one from Mopar, just to keep my warranty in check. I like the additions that you are thinking of making and I am going to copy them down for future references. I will also be watching for more help from the forum and people who are more knowledgeable than I am. Good luck and a good post.

I put an AFE CAI in my 2005 R/T AWD. I can't feel a difference in horsepower, supposedly it gives an extra 10hp, but the sound is real cool at full throttle!

Hey bbfd86, that's good to know. I have been pricing CAI's for a week or so. They all claim to give you 8-10 more horsepower, but if you don't dyno it, I guess you really can't tell. But you said it gives a more throatier sound, well then it might been worth the price until I can afford a nice cat back muffler system

I am looking to buy used 17" rims for winter tires and was wondering what other vehicles have rims that would fit my 2008 Dodge Magnum. I was also wondering what type of trailer hitch would work best on it (preferrably 1 1/4")
#27 of 32 sxt 20" wheels?
Feb 19, 2009 (5:34 pm)
I am curious, has anyone put 20" wheels on a '05 sxt all-wheel drive? I have had different answers from many sources, including Tire Rack, Summit, and local tire stores. I want to use the American Racing Torque Thrust wheel and don't know what brands tires yet. Thanks.

#29 of 32 Magnum RT-Cold air intake ?

#30 of 32 Magnum RT-Cold air intake ?
Aug 02, 2009 (10:57 pm)
I own an 06 magnum rt 2 wheel drive. Best car I ever owned. Last brand new car I'll ever buy. I heard they quit making them in 08. If so great because it will drive the value of these cars up. Did the flow master, best move I have made with this car to date.
Next is cold air intake. Problem, too many types and brands. Don't know which is best, leaning more towards K&N. Can anyone tell me their thoughts on this it would be appreciated.
Looks, power, beauty, handling and practical all in one package.
Good things never seem to make long runs. I guess thats why they quit producing the Magnums. No heavy challengers or Chargers for me
#31 of 32 cai or kn air fliter
Sep 29, 2010 (5:12 pm)
okay guys im wanting some advice here i have a 05magnum rt and ive been debating rather i wanted to put a cold air intake on it because the air box has a tube that ends around the fog lamps so i think it would be a waste of money to run a cold air intake. so i thinkit would run just as good and give just as good power to put a kn air filter in their instead of buying a cold air...

I would go with the complete CAI package. Filters by themselves will allow for more air flow, but with the complete CAI kit, you get the entire package where the elements are designed to work together to give the maximum air flow. If you do install the complete package, you will notice the difference and also hear the air flowing into the engine when you accelerate hard.
