As of today it's got 255k on it.

Have had the 200k frame on for a while now and I'm sure the car will qualify for the 300k one eventually, it still runs as strong as ever.. Any other high mile magnums out there?

The Moog problem solvers didn't work that great when I installed them, maybe i got some defective ones? In any case, when installing them watch that the big washer doesn't bend when when torquing.

Are you using the SRT clutch pedal or the one that came with the R/T? The standard Neon pedal won't work the SRT clutch setup.

...Or you could try an oversize drain plug. They cut their own new oversize threads into the oil drain hole allowing you to save the pan.

this Dorman part #65217 is oversize for the M14x1.50 threads that the neon uses.
