Yeah, not too impressed with the mileage, but it is better than the Crown Vic I used to drive. (17.5mpg)

Might do an MTX swap on it. Whole list of things I could do with it that is for sure...

The only time I get 450 kms on a tank is when I am on the highway.

I typically see 22-23mpg with back country driving, lots of stop signs, hills, turning, etc. Out on the highway, over 25.

I will continue to run it the same way I have been, if it turns into a hard knock, then I will be sure it is a bearing. Running 10w30 made no difference. I could simply pour in some 15w40 Rotella (great oil) but this engine is really not meant to run it. Maybe at 200K miles... BTW, I get ~230 miles ...

This is an ATX so it never sees more than 6000rpm. 6000rpm and a 1g lateral load can cause failures for sure due to lack of baffling in the pan, IIRC. It sounds exactly like the last video i posted, comes and goes softly like that, speeds up as revs increase, then smooths out around 1.5-2krpm. I wil...

The car was bought at a salvage auction (light frontal damage), rebuilt by a family member and purchased with 119K on the clock. An STP oil filter was on the car when I changed it at 120K, oil appeared "normal", if I had to estimate, I would say 5-30 was ran in it for approximately 7K miles, but it ...

It does show a noticeable difference in shift speed, but it is not a neck-breaking shift like the J mod tends to be.

Ohio SRT Owners - What is your insurance rate?

If you don't mind me asking, just curious what your insurance rates are?

I recently got quoted $200 for full coverage for an '04 SRT.. Sound about right for a 20 y/o with one speeding ticket?

TIA!

Quick search on auto trader and ebay showed that the only SRT's near 5K are dinged up 150K miles. 7-9K for anything remotely decent and around 100K miles...

I have a chance to purchase an 05 MTX Neon with some damage to the front end, just the drivers core support is pushed in a few inches right by the light - for under $1K...

Looks like custom projector fogs are the way to go. Are the projector lenses too weak to place there with no lens in front or will they hold up if a rock hits it?

Thanks for the replies everyone!

No fogs and no switch for them either..
