Hi everyone. Just purchased a 2007 GC SRT8 silver and am so happy to be able to be apart of this community now. Have wanted this car for a long time and am finally at a point in my life where I can afford one! It was the perfect opportunity with very low miles, absolutely no mods, and taken care of the way I feel a GC like this should be.

I'm in the USCG and recently moved to VA (DC metro area). I've read this forum quite a bit over the last few years (even while not actually owning one...what can I say I love this car) so I have a pretty good idea on where I want to start with things. Lighting mods I think I'll be ok with. From what I've read xenondepot and taillightsolutions are probably it. But everything else I would really appreciate some referals ie. performance mods, exterior mods etc. Even to the point of local mechanics that can be trusted if possible. Thank in advance to everyone and so happy to be here!!

Welcome to the family! And thanks for your service!

So for exterior mods, get yourself a shorty antenna and lower that b!tch on either eibach's or Bwoody lowering springs.. Lots of guys get the tinted tails from ken at tailight solutions, and headlights from dan aka dc special.


As for first performance mods get yourself a cai, a tuner and a custom tune.. Most popular intakes are; Bwoody 4", Mopar, Arrington, and Volant. The tuners are all from diablosport. And the two most popular tuners are johan aka diablotoona, or jersery boy..


As for performance shops, in Ashland, Virginia, there is King motorsports, trust me you won't be dissapointed with them..
