with the solid color of the hood i also dont think if flows very well but painted with some black on it and i think he said he would do the roof black also, would look sick

silver CAI, red coupler, blue TB, whats going on there? its a little too much for my eyes, also just a suggestion or two, paint the yellow engine caps black and snag a fuel injector cover, should clean thiings up alot

What do you mean when you say "engine caps".

& yeah sorry bout the blue,red & silver. The intake & TB will be painted this weekend to black & that red coupler will be black as well.

He's talking about the yellow coolant overflow cap and the engine oil dipstick handle that's also yellow. They look much better black. Here's a black roof on an SY for your reference, not really my cup of tea but if you like it....

So its been a while since i last updated this log. mostly cause it was locked as i had it locked. anyways, Nothing much new with the car. Went trough winter mode then back to summer mode about a month ago. Had a little trouble with 1 coilover not wanting to move back down again but i finally got it to move. Recently 1 of my friends got a black srt4 and he hated the Mopar tails it came with so i traded him for my tinted ones. i Love the Mopar tails on there more than my tinted ones. :-). oh & i took my intake tube off and put the filter rite off the TB and it feels better overall & now i dont have to worry about wheel to intake tube rubbing issues and no worries on possible water inside engine issues trough intake.

Then most of you knew i had a turbo setup and was planning to build the engine but the winter blues got to me and i sold all the parts. This time around i think its safe to say i plan to buy a srt4 donor car and do a srt swap cause ive been looking at some salvaged websites and have found some that im interested in already.

3rd, i decided to buy a bike. Yes its my first bike. i didnt get it for performance things like most say its slow but its fast enough for me. i already did things to it like change out plastics and exhaust and oil, plugs and other little things. she looks brand new compared to when i got her a month ago. ill post pics of it on here too. its a 98 suzuki Katana 600 with 8k miles wich now looks like a 03 style cause of the newer style tail setup.

4th, i decided to do some weight reduction... No not on the car but on the driver. lullz. i decided it was time to get in shape so ive lost 35lbs and am currently weighing in at 200llbs 5ft 10" me. Got about another 15lbs before i reach my second goal but id say im feeling better than ever these days and looking better than ever.

well on to some pics and oh & yeah most of you might ask me " you mentioned a swap but you have your car for sale" what gives..? well just because i have it for sale doesnt mean i have to sell it, it was mostly a testing waters thing and no one has shown interest in it anyways.

While working on it & putting wheels back on

Done but i did readjust front to be lower, not shown in pic

After a nice wash
Image

Image
Cleaned up the engine bay some more by taking off the intake and just putting the filter rite off the throttle body

Image
New Mopar tails i traded my new srt4 friend in town for my tinted ones

Soooo... you had this locked but then decided to make the mods unlock it. Why bother locking it in the first place?
