Well now I can check one more thing off the never ending list..... I tore the car apart last Friday night and started to prep out the hood and front bumper. I also touched up the crash par and rad support ( I dont have the foam to sit between bumper and crash bar) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...

Cant wait for my car to be 1 color again :rockon: Also got the wheels all painted and hung on the car. The wheels had 2 burnt off tires and 2 nearly new GT Radial Ch...

Good detective work. The R/T bumper mentioned with the lip was the rear bumper. Front bumper was the extreme dimensions one. The R/T rear will be going back on the car in spring. The SRT exhaust will be narrowed to fit just like I had back in the day before I swapped back to an RT exhaust and sold t...

There's no yellow front bumper, let alone 2. I've explained why.

Well not much happening lately. The owner of a local body shop is going to let me spray some parts in the next few months. I'll wait until closer to spring but the plan right now is to just spray the front bumper. I'm going to reinstall the stock rear with Mopar lip in spring and narrow the exhaust ...

used a combination of both. Took about an hour and a half to do . I did a clay bar on it before hand. I started at the scoop as that was where most of the stretching of the product was going to be. Had to use some heat to stretch it around a few areas but all in all it wasnt too bad. Looks good when...

Got my fans figured out. Had a bad relay and bad connection at connector. Works like a charm now. Just need to get some resistors to take the CEL off for the solenoid delete.

Well folks, the swap is DONE! A few things to take care of yet. My radiator fans don't seem to be kicking on so I'm going to probably hard wire them in. Still need to deal with the solenoid delete as that part of the harness was cut out and not available. Also need to get some gauges but that will c...

He said on Facebook last night he's had the SRT pedals in the car for years... so I guess that isn't it. I updated a few hours later. I feel like the biggest ass. Years back I swapped pedals, atleast the gas pedal. The clutch and brake I trimmed so that the srt pedal pads would fit on. I forgot all...

Time for another update... Put everything back together after the last post. Same issue. Realized in my infinite wisdom that I fired up the car a few times with the slave removed. It was liking fluid so I put a new one in. It was better, but still not working enough. Pulled the trans a second time t...

Clutch issues after SRT swap into '03

So Ive somewhat finished my swap from an '05 SRT-4 to my '03 R/T. It runs great but the problem that I am having now is that the clutch isnt working enough to let the vehicle roll when in gear. So far I have removed the trans and replaced the throw out, fork and pivot ball. Removed the trans again t...

Pulled the motor and trans out of the orange car as well as harnesses and everything else for the swap. Got everything moved over to the new motor and bolted up the T850 and dropped the car ...

Took a good look at the t350. Not sure how long ago but it had been replaced with a used one. Looks like the clutch was replaced at the time too. Throw out bearing fits really loose on trans input shaft. When I drained the fluid it looked a bit milky/shiny. Also the drivers side CV was toast. Becaus...

Changed water pump and timing belt. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/03sxrt/Mobile%20Uploads/20140810_202243.jpg Swapped out the struts and lowering springs from the donor car Before http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/03sxrt/Mobile%20Upload...

nice wheels :P. That car will be really nice with a turbo. The combo of the 350 and the turbo setup means that car is going to be freakin quick. The srt gears are supper long in comparison. Thank you! It should be fun with the t350. The stock trans was replaced with a used unit about a year or so a...

So I contacted the people I got the car from and as of today I have a used long block from a 05 PT Cruiser turbo on...

Well its been a while since I made any updates but there hasn't been much to say, up until the last few days. What started out as a quick email looking for a few parts from a wrecker turned into bidding on a wrecked 2005 SRT-4, and picking it up last night. Time to get busy! http://img.photobucket.c...

Well I got it back together tonight. New plugs and wires and valve cover on. Seems to run better. No misfire codes but I think it still has a slight one. It's like it gets a little fart every second or two up to about 2000 ram then goes away. I didn't get to drive it very far and won't be able to fo...
