I'm horribly confused. You had pictures posted, with your cross-hairs blacked out, and then again after you got rid of the black. All with your new 16" wheels.....and that was some time ago. Did some of your PL get deleted? Or did you never post this stuff in here?

And then after removing black from crosshairs...

he only painted one side of them so when you view it from the drivers side they look black and from the pass they look silver. That is the ONLY logical conclusion.

If you are honestly interested in the Enkeis I have them for sale on craigslist...

I don't believe I updated this thread with pictures... The last picture Dave posted is what the car looks like now, minus the Mopar front emblem. The red srt-4 I bought, had the sonic emblem..I took it off before selling the car and decided to put it on mine.

I recently had a new Moog drivers side ball joint installed today. No more "clunks"

Thinking about getting the new Coolingmist injector, before I put the kit back on. Its literally been over 90 degrees over 10 days in a row now... Really bad heat wave, and next week is just going to be as bad...Supposedly 104 tomorrow with a heat index of 111....BLEHHHHHHH!

I just think of how horrible the winter early this year and feel a little better. I do have TWO warehouse jobs, so I work in it over 10 hours every day. So I am used to it, it just wears you out. Well I jacked up the drivers side front and still have a tiny bit of play in the wheel. fuuuuuuu. New steering rack, tie rods, drivers side ball joint and wheel bearing...wtf. Chuong at Revline said everything was tight when they shook the suspension down after balljoint install. I think they imporoperly torqued the hub nut when they did the wheel bearing... The hub only has about 30k on it too...

As for new possible mods, I am looking forward to the new MPX rear diffuser that is in development..

Supposedly going to go on sale in the next two weeks. ~$350 or so is going to be the price from what I heard.
Not sure if I will have the money since the lady and I have a trip planned in October.

But a couple things have happened:
My foglight lense broke (Glass)
Image
Emailed the seller on eBay and they can't get replacement parts. So I am going to post a WTB. I am guessing a rock got kicked up and hit it.

Took the black "SRT-4" off the back. Just for the hell of it. Thought it didn't play well with the dark cherry tails which don't look too dark in this picture due to the sun.
Image

Got some items for my Coolingmist Stage 2 kit that has been off since last fall:
New upgraded CM5 injector. DevilsOwn adapter piece, which is quite something. I was in a dilemma on where to mount my nozzle since I need to keep the red TIP line for PCM controlled boost. I had the nozzle in that spot prior without running the TIP line. Bad thing is it was welded AFTER the IAT sensor. So the computer would not see the lower intake temps, thus increasing timing. And since the IAT sat so low on the hardpipe I would have to relocate that and plug the old IAT hole. This would be a huge headache and a expensive one at that. Then I found out about this adapter piece Devils Own sells...
http://www.devilsowninjection.com/en/wa ... apter.html
You simply drill a 9/16th'' hole in the coupler on your pressure pipe and plop it in there, hold it down with a wrench and tighten it down. Instant bung with no boost leaks....
I had to pick up a 1/8 NPT elbow since I could not use my old one due to the old injector being seized up in there.

This is what it will look like installed:

Love that last shot! What kind of contrast / brightness / etc did you edit? Bright sunny day photos give me a hard time for photography sometimes.

After seeing a local put down 360whp on a Forward Motion E1 turbo with e85 I got inspired.
Had no idea there were so many people running e85 with no returnline and no issues. All I need is a Diablosport Predator, Dusters 1025CC injectors and a tune that comes with the injectors. Time to crank more power out of this Stage 3 setup! :) I am excited!

Yes, it was a fail. But with the reposition of the nozzle. I haven't tried it yet. I did buy a gallon of VP Methanol. Put a bit in there to so the pump would not freeze during the winter time. I am focused on e85 for spring now since MORE power can be gained from that then HOM which runs rich and is a hit or miss.

Here is what I have now:
Image
DSP + Dusters 1025cc injectors. Going to be getting the rescale soon and loading that up in my car and installing the injectors here soon. :)

I was at Modern today for the meet and saw the rear diffuser that Cory and his team made. Looks nice. They should be out for sale now.

Installed Dusters 1025cc injectors and spacers. Was pretty easy but ran into a couple issues. The injectors are indeed larger than stock so the spacers are needed, but the issue is the fuel line that runs underneath the rail to the boost reference regulator..Well couldn't get the left pawn to screw in because due to the rail sticking out farther this brings that hardline into contact with the upper radiator hose and clamp near the thermostat housing. So we had to take the upper radiator hose off at the thermostat housing to be able to install the fuel rail with injectors. Was hitting against the dipstick before I started to tighten it down. Barely had enough room to get hose back on..
Here are some pictures of what I am talking about:

Car started up fine and idled fine. But got 6kr during WOT. Friend added some fuel and lowered the boost and I got one less kr. So I am going to have to lower timing a bit. It did pull great though. Excited to load up the e85 rescale and try that. As of now I can't go WOT until I lower a degree or two of timing from 3-7k.

The Boomba IM gasket spacer magij was causing the space issue. I got the gas tune somewhat dialed. Rarely get the rich AFR's when upshifting while cruising, but I still get it...

The reason I am posting is because I am very excited with e85! I filled the car up with e85 and loaded the tune up. And WOW the car pulls hard! Its like an entire new car. 27-30 degrees of timing. 25lbs of boost fluctuating down to 21 by redline. No knock! 12.5 AFR by redline!
3rd gear does not last long at all. Car will be hitting the rollers next month. Looking for atleast 350whp.
Just a wash and dry with some tire shine and some elbow grease for the exhaust tips. I hate doing pictures in front of my house.. but what the hell. Everyone likes pict0rz!

No returnline. S3 fuel system. No fuel pump rewire. :)
AFRS are in the 11's when I spike I believe. Its S3 it spools very fast.

Well I was doing a boost leak test today, haven't done one in a while and I heard a lot of air coming coming out of somewhere... Felt around my UPP and LPP...nothing. Listened hard and sure enough it sounded like it was coming from the damn intercooler! So I took the front fascia off and the first thing I noticed was oil seeping on the bottom of the intercooler. Put air into the system and sure enough air blew out of this cracked weld very hard. Car could not hold pressure worth crap. Not a happy camper. Friend might be able to weld it since it looks very small. But not sure how well that will hold up. I did notice when I was doing boost leak tests in the past I would hear a minor "Hissss" and I had no idea where it was coming from..Well when you are running 27lbs of boost I guess that doesn't help.
Here is proof:

Friend tried to weld it tonight but it did not want to weld well. He did some practice lines on a sheet of aluminum. Perfect. But the intercooler was being a bitch. He has it now and is taking it to VP Racing out here and they are going to weld it. In the meantime. I ordered a BFMIC. Yes you heard that right.. I decided to go with a BFMIC. Going to do testing with it comparing it to the AGP DFIC. Mainly pressure drop and cooling under same conditions.

CxRacing BFMIC was a FAIL Fitiment was HORRIBLE! So I put my freshly welded AGP unit back on there. No boost leaks!

Dyno day tomorrow. Running 24lbs falling to 19ish by redline. e85 and around 30 degrees of timing. New plugs in the car. I am ready to rock. :twisted:

1st run it was spinning on the dyno, hence the lower numbers. Stoked on the results for an unmodified Mopar Stage 3 turbo. With 117k on the car. I <3 e85.

Video to come soon. Car shot fireball out of the exhaust. :twisted:
