    New to me 05 Magnum R/T

    Just picked up an 05 Magnum R/T in decent shape at an incredible price (A/C not working, tires shot, stereo/nav hacked out, and dash back lighting not working). Looking to fix/upgrade bit by bit. I've already addressed the A/C (bought a control unit, but that wasn't the issue--turns out it was one of the resistor things in the rear fuse box that was in the wrong location), installed a new double-DIN headunit with Apple Car Play (and the modules to work with the steering wheel controls), replaced upper and lower radiator hoses, serpentine belt, and thermostat.

    I've done a bit of reading and am a bit freaked out over the whole valve seat thing (hence the thermostat replacement)--guess I'll set aside some "head work" funds and get them done once I can.

    I have to say, this is one FUN automobile--pulls HARD, sounds great, and is fun to drive. Can't wait to get the suspension sorted...

    I've had my '06 RT for almost 3 years now. Still puts a smile on my face everyday.

    Congrats on the Magnum!
