Yes the Opel Omega was imported in the states under the Cadillac Brand, with the name Catera... IN the early years 1997 the car was modified with softer suspension and some bumper supports to meet the US crash standards. Then as the years went on and complaints kept raining in the folks at Cadillac ...

Thats one thing I cant decide, go with 03 Front end and complete Mopar lip or stick with the 02 and just install this lip kit... Might have to put it to a vote somewhere else on the forum. Either way one of them will get sold. Who's rocking the Opel in that first picture? You mean this thing... http...

Back when I got it it was going to go on my car but then I found the Mopar kit and installed that instead.

But now Im thinking of installing this as its more rare... but so is the Mopar kit too!...

None the less fit and finish is perfect on this bad boy.

I saw his car, now he has lips on the fender wells also that seem to cover the lower lip where they meet...

This one is flush seems it can be mounted just as it is.. without the need of the wheel flares...

I wonder what its worth today?

That would be very simple... I have an external cooler on the car but it runs through the OEM one, then through the external one... so all I have to do is reroute the hoses... and cap the oem one...

I guess I will do that this weekend... simple enough!

We replaced the radiator with a new one... and then did a few coolant flushes trying to get rid as much of the coolant as possible. However some does remain in the torque converter so after every flush only a given % was replaced... unfortunately I think the band on the drum holding 2nd gear poped o...

Trans SWAP 01-3spd to 95-3spd ;)

Well long story short the car has 80,000mi its a 2001 and has the 31TH gearbox... Due to an issue with the torque converter at 30K the dealer had to remove it 3 times rebuild it twice until they figured out that it was a wiring issue... Since then the car was never the same... had bumpy shifts etc.....

I guess there was a big difference in gear change... going from stock gears to the 3:24... not bad, 1st gear is much better... and in general the car is better now.

1995 DOHC has a 3.24 final drive ratio all the 00-01 have the 2.98... and the 96-99 had 2.98 SOHC and 3.19 DOHC. As for the lock up not sure which years it was the electronic, but I assuem early 95 would be very simple to swap. The RT trans could even sell for some good cash. In fact if you ever con...

I can understand your financial situation... A new Neon can cost quite a bit... An old one thats say 1000$ is not very reliable, so a 300$ ATX swap is something desirable in his case... I would say I have a 3spd atx if you are down for a swap I am down for letting my ATX find a new home in your car....

Hey fellas... I come here for a quick advise... The Neon is in the shop getting a new gearbox but in mean time we got to get the RAV4 read for winter.
