I've read it's a 5-10 horsepower bump.

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

That seems like a decent price. I hope it turns out well. Take pics of the chain if you decide to cut it. I've always been curious about that mod.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I used VHT caliper spray paint. I've also used the Duplicolor caliper kit that's a brush on application. That one's great for touch ups. I wouldn't suggest painting a whole caliper with it. Spray is the way to go for full coverage.

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

That's a lot of play for sure. What's the plan for the turbo? Rebuild or replace with something bigger?

Re: Random posting

What a bummer. It always blows my mind when someone is selling a car and they don't even bother to clean it. That car was really nice at one point, with Stage 3 and the coils.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Yeah, 35mm offset. I know it's weird, but it happened on both the R/T and this chassis. I have the plates set up to negative one on both front and back to avoid rubbing. Only the fronts are close to the coils.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

3mm spacers up front keep the tires off of the coils. They rubbed without them. I don't love spacers, but they're a necessary evil in this case.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I took the car out for a couple hours' round trip yesterday. The brakes were great. No more sticking. The pads feel good, too. Not super grabby until I ask them to be. Perfect for street pads.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Well, I installed the new caliper and then drove around for a bit. I noticed it was still grabbing and could smell the hot brakes after a while. I went home and checked them out, only to discover that the other front caliper was sticking this time. Fortunately, Autozone had both in stock so I went a...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

It was a special deal they had where you enter parts onto a wish list. Select winners are chosen to receive those parts for free. I won a runner-up prize which was $200 off any purchase of $400 or more. The pads and rotors were $465, so I paid $265. I'd been looking at brake parts for a while and wa...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I just bought new brakes from Wheelwell. This is my first purchase from them, so I'll report on how the process goes. I ordered Stoptech rotors and pads. I got a $200 discount and free shipping, so it was too good to pass up.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

So I was wrong about the brand. The box actually says “Spec D” on it, which is the same brand that Modern sells for $180 after shipping. https://i.imgur.com/dNp03Vk.jpg I’m so glad I didn’t buy them from Modern. I saved over $100. There are some differences between these and the Depos. The black par...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I never considered that. I'm not sure what kind of warranties are available through eBay sales (also where I got the broken set). I already received a new set anyway. If these ones fail, I'm definitely going to complain to the seller. I bought these new ones from a company that claims to make them. ...

I'm probably going that way on my current SRT as well. It just looks so good.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Purchase made. We'll see how the eBay generics hold up, I guess. I wanted to have the broken one replaced in time for the RADwood car show this weekend, so I went ahead and bought the cheapos.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I was considering the generic eBay lights, since they all seem to be cheaply made. I can get a new set for $75 if I want to give them a shot.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I discovered this a couple of days ago. I'm super irritated, given how much searching I did for these lights. I'm thinking about coughing up the $180 for the ones from Modern ($35 shipping is robbery).

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Not bad. If I ever get a wingless trunk lid, I'm probably going to put the same spoiler on my car. I think yours could benefit from a little more black, though. Have you ever considered the carbon license plate surround or maybe some carbon crosshairs or something? Gloss black RPF1s?

I know the sensor is still in place. It has to be one of the pipes. Hopefully it's an easy fix and I don't have to replace anything.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I blew a pipe off somewhere last night. The car only holds 5 psi, so it's a major leak. Probably the hot side where it attaches to the turbo, because it's loud as hell inside the car. Hopefully I can inspect and fix it today or tomorrow.

Re: Intro (and how I saved an R/T)

The water in the trunk is most likely coming from the tail light gaskets. You can find replacements on eBay.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Since the car’s an 03, that hose section is replaceable instead of permanent. My buddy reached under and replaced the split hose with a new piece. It took him 20 minutes and the car was back up and running. Crisis averted...this time.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Yeah, there's a rubber elbow that split on it. Modern sells the updated replacement piece for $70. I'm probably going to order it tonight, after I get my mechanic buddy to commit to helping me with it.
