Re: Mods are working OT to beat the bots!

I sent Jason a text message last week suggesting that we could manually activate new users. The 3 of us are on here nearly every day and it would be less work than weeding through once the damage is done. Jason's in school right now, so I don't know what kind of time he has to spend on any of this. ...

Re: Weird valve rattle?

OEM ignition coil = 40kV
MSD coil = 36kV

If you just like the look of the red, spray paint the stocker. And as Bill already suggested, try that as your first step in diagnosing the rattle.

I used Mopar PS2 spray paint. I sanded it smooth and coated it in silver, filled the slots and numbers with dark red paint, then cleared over it all. Two years of regular use and it's still smooth.
Interesting. I wonder if I can get mine to look that good in PX8.

Re: If you could have another car that's not a Neon... which?

Who in the fuck bought a Neon SRT-4 for great gas mileage ? Hehe, nobody , but that wasn't the point of my post. I'm comparing my home-brewed cobbled together setup stuffed in a heavy old car compared to a bone-stock 2.4 turbo properly placed in a nice light car from the factory. From what I rememb...

Re: If you could have another car that's not a Neon... which?

I cannot for the life of me understand why SRT-4 owners get the gas mileage that they do. How fat did Dodge run the 2.4 turbo from the factory??? My setup which now has close to 60k miles on it gets 31-33mpg on the highway (not using the in-dash navigator - using actual calculations tank to tank). I...

Re: Which year is better

Are you asking just about the bare engine? If so, the injectors are the only difference between those years. The 2003 had smaller injectors. The 2004 and 2005 had "Stage 1" injectors which were slightly larger. There are several other differences at the car level, but that's the only difference at t...

Stock, that's true. He didn't mention if it was boosted or sprayed. To the OP, if you're stock, then yes, total waste of time, money, and fuel. If you've got some adders, then read on. You are correct about the flow. 2005+ Ford Mustang injectors are 24lb/hr and are a physical drop-in. Great for mild...

Check the pressure switches on the refrigerant lines. When the system is charged, the pressure switches should read dead short across the terminals. If they don't, either the system is too low on refrigerant, or the switch itself is bad. If you don't have a multimeter to check them with, you could a...
