I'd do maintenance items so you can make sure you can drive the car for a long time. No use in having SRT wheels on a car with a broken timing belt. +1. I love the way my car looks and drives but the knocks, squeaks, and whistles only give me something to be embarrassed by. I've put a hold on mods ...

I think I've seen this car (or color) in better pictures. I feel like the picture editing altered the color of the car.. I'm also surprised nobody has suggested lowering it yet. Though I do agree, It looks unfinished without the badge and side markers. Aside from all the negative comments and the jo...

High pitched whistle on acceleration and tranny braking.

As the title suggests, I've got this really annoying whistle which can be heard in the video posted: http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa361/thaners1234/th_E3165E17-3EF8-489F-9A81-CEDACA36ADB8-2439-0000012CAB84D2DF_zps617a983e.jpg Apologies for the music :lol: It all started when I first installed...

I had an srt exhaust on my 04 sxt and without the glasspack I added it droned horribly on the highways and just sounded raspy as crap.

I've had a similar issue, since the day I bought the car two years ago in fact. It happens mostly with reverse. This was before and after installing my STS.

I asked and the mechanic said he already cleared it from the computer.. Guess I'll just have to remove the front bumper or raise the car up for alignments from now on because they were the only shop in town with a flat lift that the car could fit on. She ain't even that low :lol:

Does your car pull to either side when driving normally? I'm not sure if it makes a difference but the srt's do have a shorter turning radius. I don't usually notice too much torque steer.

Confused about alignment...

I just got my car aligned, and even though I only requested they adjust the toe, they aligned everything. Yes, that's generally a good thing, but I had the camber set to a degree per my liking. After being told they adjusted everything, I took a close look at my tires and they still seemed to have n...

You might also be able to keep the grill inserts dipped if they flow with the black grill enough. Might be a cheaper/easier option than painting them white since they're already dipped. White inserts would look real clean though :thumbup:

IMO I think the plasti dip would look better if you only did the lower grills. The cross hairs should have been kept white. Other than that, an amazing transformation! The car looks much better.

I thought the same but a second opinion in the shop today agreed it wasn't oil. The catch can sits pretty low in the engine bay. Too low to get to where all the fluids were.
