If I get the V6, my first modification will be a 12" subwoofer. After that, I'm getting headers and an exhaust. As soon as internals are available, that engine is getting a serious treatment. If I get a V6, there are some V8 competitors that should worry.

aftermarket cold air intake (when I find a really good one) and then possibly exhaust depending on how the stocks sound...

Cold air intake. I've already contacted a company that will provide one (and install it) in exchange for a little time with the car. Might do an exhaust later, but I have to say in some of the video I've seen the stock exhaust sounds great to me, especially that Jay Leno's garage vid.

If it was me.

Suspension (Coils, sway bars)
Intake
Muffler replacements
Tune if available.

I'd be trying to get all that for under 1k

Hey, not sure if you knew this but the LLT has a forged crank and rods from the factory! It's like they knew we were going to tune.

The first mod should be your 2 way paging alarm with optional remote start. Do the remote start if your getting an installer so you can knock it out. You can get Avital systems on ebay cheap. They are the generic brand of DEI which is same as Viper and Clifford.

Does the car come with any kind of security system? I know that Viper makes very good alarms but I would have hoped that it would come with something.

1- 3M Clear Bra.
2- 35% Window tint
3- Lower suspension. OEM looks too 4x4!
4- A set of lightweight 19" to replace the oversized RS 20" wheels.

Any idea on how much the lower suspension would cost?

LOL you guys are all too funny, Old school is the word I am looking for.

YOU CAN'T just throw any old Mod onto the car and expect gains .. At most you should be expecting losses because new cars today have a little something called an ECU that prtoects the car from MODS and limits the HP and trq to a set standard .

The correct answer you all should be saying for your first MOD should be A TUNE !

Unless you are going for sound and in that case Exhaust for the first MOD if tuning isn;t yet available.
