Cleaned up and detailed engine bay

Post by DetergentCandy » Sat Oct 04, 2014 11:56 pm

I realize i've only shared 2 photos of the new car. So ya.
Since I bought it; i've installed an MPx 3" side exit and AGP motor/transmission mounts, retrofitted some Morimoto Mini's, and installed dual catch cans. One behind the passenger-side fog light and the other one inside the engine bay, below/behind the PCM. I usually dislike seeing them inside the engine bay out in the open, so I tried to keep them out of sight.

Currently waiting on a 50-4 Maddog shifter with a Hurst stick, and an AEM wideband for the DSP I picked up last month. Tuning soon! :D

Last week I picked up a Mopar intake from eBay and decided to color match it , the injector cover, and radiator hard pipe at the same time. Color is VHT "Burnt Copper". It looks pretty damn similar to OB in person. It just always looks more orangy in photos :P And I cleaned up some wires while I was at it. Had to make my own solenoid bracket cause the intake didn't come with one.

Also, I know that a clean rust-free engine bay is like porn to you east coasters. So you're welcome.

I rrrrreally wanna replace all the vacuum hard-lines with custom length silicone ones. I've never actually seen anyone do that. I tried searching SRTForums and Google, but couldn't really find anything. I just want route them differently, but I can't cause they're shaped the way they are :P

Any other future mods are probably on hold for a bit. Wrecked my motorcycle on Thursday, so I don't have a spare vehicle anymore. Plus, any spare cash needs to go towards school, the bike, and bandages for me :P

I like orange! :thumbup:

I'm alive, so that's good :P Lots a road rash and bruises, but nothing broken (that I know of). Braked too hard and locked up my front wheel. Went down and slid under a truck in front of me.

Bike is pretty trashed. Will need a new front end and other small bits and pieces before it's rideable again.

Glad to hear your okay.
Engine bay is looking sweet, :thumbup:
now you just need to powdercoat the intake manifold and valve cover black.

Looking sexy! I agree with him ^ powder coat the intake manifold, valve cover and get a radiator cover and you are golden! Great work dude, glad you're ok.

I redid my vacuum lines with regular 5/16 rubber fuel lines and I love it. Made them a little longer to hide them better with some zip-ties and now I know for sure there's no leaks.


How many miles on the car? Looks well taken care of dude

Do you have pictures of your lines? :D Wouldn't mind seeing how it turned out. Like I said, haven't been able to find any pictures of them rerouted :P

Just passed 110K! Previous original owner babied it <3
