Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Will going to a different brand of manifold affect the alignment of anything, or are they pretty interchangeable?

That sucks to hear about the issues with the manifold. I hope you can get it figured out soon.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

On the previous page I said mine say "Eagle Eye" where yours say Dynamic R. I never had issues with the "Eagle Eye" ones. Have you driven in rain with the Eagle Eye brand? I'm asking because I found some online. I had that brand on my old R/T and one of them leaked like these ones do. I'm a little ...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I contacted the sellers of the defective headlights. They want me to send them back. This would be fine if I hadn't just trashed one of the Depos. Now the car is going to be sitting in the driveway without headlights until the refund comes through and I can buy another set from someone. What a pain ...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I tried to fix my previous set of headlights by baking them and opening them up per the instructions on the SRTForums. They turned into a goopy mess with tabs breaking everywhere. It was so bad, I just threw the whole headlight in the garbage. https://i.imgur.com/ubGqwiCl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/DJl...

Well, these Spec D headlights are trash.

I'm starting to think good headlights no longer exist for this car.

Re: Magnum heads

Magnum heads came in the 2001 and up R/Ts and ACRs. They had larger exhaust ports for better flow. They also came with a steeper cam and stiffer valve springs. Sorry, I don't know any part numbers.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

My old '02 came without any form of trunk release. The only way to open it was with the key from the outside. It was a super duper base model.

Re: The Official eBay, Craigslist, etc Links Thread for Cars

I hate those fucking "wolverine slash" stickers that people put on their cars. So tacky.

Yikes. 135k miles, an accident, and he wants over twelve grand for it? That's laughable.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Local guy was parting out a black SRT in one of the Facebook groups. I spotted the wingless lid and jumped on it. A PVO is definitely on my to do list. I just need to come up with the cash.

The plugs that go to the body harness are different. Everything else is the same; you just can't plug it in.

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: 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.

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...

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.

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.

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...
