Hello and welcome to my project log. Before reading please note that this thread covers two cars.....Pages 1-4 Are of my old 2002 ES which was sold in January 2013 The new car is a 2003 SXT purchased in January 2013, the current progress log starts on Page 5 ---> New Car . Thanks for Looking and feel free to comment. Feedback is always appreciated!



The 2002 ES






I bought my 02 for almost a grand with the obscene body damage and a full taupe interior. bandhead Car had a brand new head on it Rock ON and with my old 99sport reaching a little farther than the "golden years", I decided to get rid of it and bring this little lemon home. Here is how it all started....

1st upgrades.










Maddog STS 52% reduction with Modern performance 50z weighted shift knob. Also props to the user for the borrowed pic but did get some boogers and JMB Cradle bushings to go with it. Also my painted motor mounts. Was gonna use the energy suspensions inserts but decided to to just fill them instead. Sean is their new owner.

Forum rules specify that you must send your short throw shifter to the Mods, specifically me, so we can properly break it in for you. (It takes a few years.)

Deal with it

I read a LOT of reviews including some here on 2gn before buying it. Was gonna pick up the Mopure STS but ultimately, had to side with MP. A new assembly with a proven mod seemed like the logical choice. After installing it last night I totally approve and see what everyone is raving about. This with boogers=2" throws and solid engagement! and.......the MP Shift knob is super shiny Rock ON

In touch with ASP to get myself some JM Cradle Bushings then............ profit Twisted Evil

A little update for you all. With the help of Sean NP and a roommate I now am the proud owner of an entire 02 slate interior with Ram's Head fabric. THE TAUPE HAS GOT TO GO! Will also be receiving a set of chrome SRT door handles and once again thanks to sean, SRT slate buckets!!! Rock ON . Pics installed will follow.

Well the car is a mess but here are some updated pics.

SRT 4 Seats installed, RB4 installed, Maddog 52% STS installed, and Cluster LEDs installed.(they are MUCH brighter in person)




For comparison


Might talk to the mods and get this thread transfered over to project logs...getting pretty full and we are just getting started evil2

Do you get any dead spots or hot spots with those LEDS? I have some of those in my cluster and some of the 4 way LEDS and its very uneven and the flicker and stuff. I need to upgrade but not sure what to go with.

I did notice red line doesn't show too well but, if you can't feel it or see the needles over 6500K mark and know what you could be doing to your engine, you might as well take your car to wherever you got it and give it back. evil4

You should re-upholster those SRT seats in some tan leather and mix in the CF fabric to match the tan interior. That....would be awesome.

Lol that would be awesome LSP I hadn't thought of that Think However since we went through the trouble of pulling an entire slate interior it would probably be the right thing to do to use it Smile We will see though, I got some plans for Carbon that I will be getting to in the next couple of months. You all will just have to wait to see. thumbup

id say don't waste your time on the crane 12 as its really only marginally better then a stock 01 r/t cam. the comp 400 is made to work with a 2gn w/a magnum motor.
