Default 2008 3.5L power mods?

Hey all. Im new to the site and a brand new 3.5L/6 speedSebring. Im jumping the gun here but what power mods, if any, have been proven to make good power on this engine? I figure first thing is a CAI of some sort and maybe a muffler change. If this caris anything like the SRT8s, a Diablo Predatortuner would be something to look into also.
Lastly, does anyone know if the wheel stud pattern is the same for the Magnum/Charger/300and the Sebring? I have some nice 20x8" wheels from the Magnum andId like to see if they fit. They have 245/45s on them. They are 1.3" taller overall than the stock 215/55/18s so thats only about 5/8" per side. Id like to see them on the car!

Thanks for any help!

Well, I can at least free up the exhaust using weld in mufflers, or removing the resonators,and letting some more air into the engine with a custom CAI. Those are cheap mods.

Don't void your warranty in the process. It's your money, but....

I have modified many cars over the years and have never had a warranty issue, but thanks.

Hmmmm. I guess coming from a long list of performance cars/sedans I have gotten used to more enthusiasm and modding to our vehicles. This doesnt seem the case on this site. This will take some getting used to on my part.[]

Which may not be a bad thing really. That is money saved. I would like to get the car into the mid/low 14s ifI could without doing anything crazy. That would have it running near what the competitions 3.5Ls are running.

Im having a hard time finding any factory/magazine numbers for the 3.5 in a sedan without AWD. Any ideas?
