Sporty looks, sharp driving manners and a roomy cabin are just three reasons why the Dodge Dart turns heads on the street and in parking lots. Maybe you’re one of the more than 65,000 people who have put a new Dart in their driveway this year.

While every Dart leaves the factory ready for action, some enthusiasts revel in taking their car up another notch or two. The cool thing is that Mopar makes it easy to do that, either yourself or with the help of a local dealer.

Here’s just one example of what you can do:

Noted Mopar fan and TV car auction commentator Steve Magnante demonstrates in this video clip how easy it is to give your Dart a boost with the installation of a Mopar cold-air induction kit. Note how Steve pulls off the swap with just a screwdriver and a socket wrench, and manages to wrangle a handheld microphone while doing the install:
