I understand man! Especially with the kits that you are putting out, it would seem that you already would have a lot on your plate.

We can send you an MS. The trick is going to be replacing all the wiring to power all the sensors, etc. A couple of them need 5v, which can be fed from the MS, most need 12v, which you'll want to play with at the fuse box, etc. Something that's nice though is that really the only engine wiring you ...

DOHC swap

Ok so I thought that I would make this topic for some people who were looking for information on a DOHC swap, not so much a 2.4 but a 2.0 DOHC based on my experience so far. Q. Will the head fit? A. Yes any DOHC will fit, BUT the newer DOHC heads have an extra oil passage drilled into it. Q. What ki...

Sugar coated: It's pretty easy to figure out! Just plug in the right wires, and your car will fire right up! Actually what happens: You'll get the wiring in, and hopefully everything is tight and not noisy. Tuning will be a major headache until you figure it out. You'll bang your head against the w...

Well, the static pressure is set with the adjustment screw. The big one on the back that can be turned with a hex key (it utilizes a jam nut to hold steady). Simply loosen the jam nut and start turning the screw. Keep an eye on your fuel pressure gauge, with the car idling, and adjust/set the base ...

OK, from the pics in the '04 parts catalog, the SRT pump has a brake line type fitting for the pressure side. All you would need is to match the size at a parts store, and get a brake line union/short piece of assembled brake line to make an extesion. the hose that goes to the resivior is the retur...

Man up and delete the PS. You could probably go to the dealer, or the junkyard and get a set off a DOHC car. I don't see any problems with braided lines as long as they'll hold up to the pressure. Funny... my old r/t that I had didn't have PS and Boy was it a pain in the ass to drive, I ended up ge...
