Chrysler used to have a turbo 4 cylinder Caravan that would easily run 11 second 1/4 miles. Without doing an engine and complete drive train swap, the only route to really make that thing move is forced induction. Better flowing heads, intake, and exhaust will boost power but still won't make it much faster. How fast are you looking to go?


idk enogh to brag. and ya i think ive herd of it. they had the new r/t concept but im not shure if they even make that. and ya i already put dull exhaust glass packs on. someone said i mite be able to get a cold air intake


now i don't know if your up to the challenge but you can do an srt4 turbo swap with the 5 speed trans then that van will kick but


11 second quarter mile when stock? Not possible. With alot of work done to it...yeah its then possible. But a stock van going that fast...nope. If you were to turn the boost up on the turbo, lose shit tons of weight, and a bunch of motor work...then you might be able to crack into the 11-12 second range.


Did I say it did it stock? Nope.


Rip everything out and mount a mid-engine v-8, rear wheel drive. That should get you bragging rights

just strip a shit load of weight out of the vehicle. then a couple of small things to increase power. just the normal stuff... heads, ports, intakes, performance muffler perhaps to increase flow. but the biggest thing is the weight


Well you can always go for the engine swap route but that takes time and money. Plus you might run into problems where you have to do fabrication work in the engine bay and try to get stuff to mount up right. Another route is forced induction, what size motor are you working with? You can super or turbo charge it but your going to have to build up the internals to handle boost.


put a srt 4 turbo engine in it.
