Re: 2003 SRT DD

You'll want to use clear with hardener in it. Otherwise it will yellow, or flake off eventually from the engine bay heat.

I used wheel clear coat, which help up for a few years, but it is showing it's weaknesses.

Re: Any new ECU options?

Yo have to physically check the fuel pressure at the port in the fuel rail. Your 2002 should still have the port. The schrader valve may need to be removed, depending on what type of pressure gauge you buy to screw onto the port. It is an AN or JIC type connection. There is no sensor that tells any ...

Re: '02 Magnum engine low on power

Maybe it has a shit load of carbon build up, and the knock sensor is pulling spark timing? That compression seems maybe a bit too high for a stock engine with 200,000 miles.

If the valve seals are leaking oil into the exhaust, the ports might be carboned up, restricting flow too.

Unless the muffler is clogged, it probably flows adequately enough. The stock SE neon muffler outlet is only 1 and 7/8" OD. I have never had an issue hitting the rev limiter using the stock SE neon muffler. The body size has nothing to do with back pressure. it is mostly sound absorbing packing, tha...

If your AFR is actually lean from that, you have other issues. An exhaust change, and a CAI are well within the stock PCM's capabilities. What are you using to monitor AFR? The biggest thing that would affect it from just that very minor, not really adding much power change, would be a tired o2 sens...

I used a Timken replacement (ebay) on my 2001, and didn't have any issues. A lot of it depends on how much, and what quality of grease they pack in the replacement bearing. Some die hard folks like to take the new bearing apart, and pack quality grease into them before use. All 2000 to 2005 rear hub...

Renault would not likely be interested in sharing Fiat Chrysler's body-on-frame platforms, which underpin the automaker's big pickups and SUVs in North America,
Um, more like just pickups. Pretty sure all the SUV's have been unibody for a few years.

Just further diluting of the gene pool.

Not really any rebadged Fiat cars I would buy either.
I still want a new Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack :D

So do I, but those aren't built on a fiat platform. Yet....

I would still but a Challenger, Charger, 300, or Ram, if I had the need and cash.

Unfortunately the 2gn neons tend to rot out badly in the salt belt. You'll want to check the crossmember for the front suspension, as well as the lower control arms, as they can rot pretty bad too. The 2003 through 2005 crossmembers aren't as bad, but they are not immune to rusting out. I have seen ...

Unless the engine shut off, the cam sensor won't leave you stranded. The PCM just fires the injectors in batch mode vs sequential.
