    I did some searches, and I can't find anything significant.

    My advice if you are looking for performance mods is to check the GM Performance Parts catalog from time to time.

    I just so happened to have a copy of the 2006 catalog on my computer...so I looked, and there doesn't really appear to be much in the way of mods for the 3.5 and 3.9L V-6s that are in non-SS cars.

    Sorry mayun.

    Why didn't you get a base Subaru WRX Turbo if you wanted to do some mods (priced about the same...not trying to be an azz...but it'd be easier to find stuff)

    Perhaps you needed more space I suppose.

    Anyhow...always nice to have a new ride...enjoy!

    Peace,

    Congrat's on the new car ;-)

    I can't find anything specific to the Impala either, but I do know of two sites/forums that have a lot of die hard GM owners and they might be able to help you:

    Sure, but only after it blows up 3 transmissions in the process.

    If that Dodge mini-van has the old 3 speed automatic, it is bulet proof. That transmission has been around since the 60's. Most of the old HEMI cars came with the manual or automatic version of the transmission. It is when they got the 4-speed auto that transmissions didn't last. And most of the time the reason the transmissions don't last is because people don't put the correct transmission fluid in them. Mopar transmissions need the +4 transmission fluid not the standard +3, and it has to be Mopar brand. They have a specail forumla that are made for the transmissions.

    Oh and congrats on the Impala. I am sorry, but if you were looking for any kind of mods a family car is not the way to go. But hey it does what you need it to do and that is the most important thing.

    the new style transmissions on the dodges are badass as well. its the 90s style trannys that are known for problems.

    as for performance sites i can't remember if it has impalas but i do know of www.rksport.com.
