Re: Intake manifolds

Why not just switch to a Magnum intake instead of making a duplicate version of it? They can be ported and smoothed out for better flow.

Re: MPx Underdrive pulley

Must've been a Magnum thing. My old '02 base had zero issues with the UDP. It didn't make a noticeable bump in power for me either.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Everywhere I'm searching shows the knuckle without the bearing or hub in it. That would be a killer deal if it was assembled, though.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

You can see how filthy that part of the K-frame is, because the stock axle was also losing grease in that area. That mound is pretty new, though. I wiped it off after taking the picture, so I can check on it again to see if there's new buildup. It definitely looks like it's coming from the rear boot...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I raised the front end about half an inch this weekend. Now it doesn't scrape coming in and out of my driveway. I inspected the axles a bit while I had the wheels off. The passenger side looks fine, despite making noise and now popping from time to time. The driver's side looks like this: https://i....

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I was going to get a set of those originally, but they're way more expensive. I got my axles for $100. The Gators are $500 for the pair. Like they say, you get what you pay for. I guess I'm going to drive on these wobbly ones until I can afford some nicer ones.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Aaaaaand now the car is vibrating during acceleration. Surefire sign of a bad axle. It's minor, but it's noticeable. Maybe these Trakmotive axles aren't so good after all. Fuck.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

How far off are the holes? Could you oval a couple out to make room, or is it too far? I think I want them to be grey, like the color I painted the Silverstones on the R/T. I feel a little iffy about painting the RPF1s, though. I can dip them again, but I'd rather powdercoat them. Especially now tha...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

The car has silverstar turn signal bulbs. They light up amber, but have a weird chrome-ish coating on them that looks kind of blue. They're better than regular amber bulbs during the day, but still a little weird. I have the chrome bulbs in the silver car still. I'll probably swap them to this car. ...

Here's a quick under hood shot with the DC brace installed. I'm thinking about selling it. It's in the way of everything and the front braces don't do a lot on these cars. That airbox is in my way, too. I hope to have that removed eventually. Next steps involve replacing the valve cover gasket and b...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Call me the axle seal whisperer; that thing went straight in the first try. I tapped it in with a 2x4 and a hammer. The axle popped right in after it and all went well. I had a slightly harder time with the end links, but they eventually went into place. https://i.imgur.com/mUf2hsBh.jpg Next, I swap...

My parts are slowly coming in this week. While axles and seals are showing up, a couple of the parts are just for fun. Like Prothane front end links and Depo headlights.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I did some reading on the SRT Forums and I guess it's really common to booger that lip up. As long as the seal gets pushed in flush, it doesn't leak. I'm not worried about it anymore. I'm more concerned about installing the new seal; it looks like it's going to be a pain.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I jacked up the other end of car and was able to fight that strut out of the wheel well. I pulled out the driver's axle and it looked pretty bad. I'm pretty sure it's been throwing grease out from a small cut in the boot. I think it was kind of a good thing that I ended up taking it out. I decided t...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Supposedly it only happens if you have one corner up. But I had the entire front end up. I lucked out and it didn't tear the boot. You are supposed to undo the sway bar endlinks and that releases tension on the control arm so the control arm can drop. I only have one corner up in the picture. I'm g...

You can see the strut is pushing down really hard on the boot. It's basically stuck there. I've never had this happen before.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I installed the FPR and axle yesterday. The FPR went in without much fuss, but the axle was a pain in the ass. The biggest problem was the strut, honestly. As soon as I released it from the knuckle, it extended down onto the axle and wouldn't budge. I had to remove the tie rod and contort the knuckl...

Since FPRs go for almost $200, I've been on the lookout for a cheaper option. I ended up purchasing an entire 50,000 mile SRT fuel pump setup from Vitor on the .org for $100. I plan to pop the regulator off that assembly and swap it into the Neon. That should take care of the hard start and it gives...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Good to know. I'll update when I get a chance to mess with it. Also, keep in mind the car is Stage 2, so it has larger injectors that are better suited for the tune. I don't think Stage 2 cars have the lean issue that stock cars do. I've been looking at widebands for a while and I don't know which o...
