The Impala with the 3.9L V6 has more power than your Charger and gets 18/28 as opposed to your 18/24. The problem with your Charger isn't that it has too much power, it's that it has that 3.5L Chrysler V6.

By the way the Impala was the other car I was looking at getting.
I'd say .33 is pretty good considering that the front end looks like a parachute, and the car keeps getting wider towards the rear. I'm not dissing it, the same look is found on the new Camaro that I love, just saying .33 is great considering how un-slippery the car looks.
i disagree with you guys. the feminine humps(or should i say hips) have a very smooth contour that does taper back. dont get me wrong, it is still very much a "manly" car, it just has hips and dudes dont. we are talking about a couple inches here and the real beef with it would be frontal area, not so much .cd. the rear windshield has a very nice taper as well.
i guess the sad thing is any aero mods that would significantly improve the car would make it really ugly. the only thing that wouldnt ruin the cars looks would be an upper grill block and a modification to the bottom of the rear bumper to decrease the low pressure system behind the car.
don't waste your time or time will waste you
I plan on blocking the lower part of the grill next. I figure it was designed with enough airflow for the HEMI so I should ok with the V6. I will watch temps on my scangauge. Winter is coming so I should be fine but I will need to watch it in the summer.
