Picture is broken. You should have directions that came with the bushings though, Manny. If I remember correctly, the big bushing goes on top....Can't quite remember though.

Steven gave me a clue.. well see if it helps. well thats it for now.

Soooo wait a second. You had turbo parts and scrapped them to go another way.

Now you're going turbo again.

Do I need to ask about your thought process there or should we assume it's just Mannytardo being Mannytardo? :lol:

basically the only part i need is the engine bay harness, you know the one that comes wit fuse box. thats whats going to be putting a damper on my swap next weekend. im still going to take out engine put srt in there just to get ahead. i found one on srt forums but dude said it has a bad pcm connector..

i havent tried the junk yard yet as i just now figured out wich wiring it was that i needed. the other wiring comes with the engine.


edited a few hours later, found a guy on neons.org and am txting him and looks like i got me the wiring harness i need. just gotta wait for him to pull it as he is still in the process of tearing apart the srt4 he has.

I just got a wiring harness from a buddy... I'll check it out and see which one it is.... and if it's in good shape.

If I remember right he said one of the connectors was broken?.... so if you can get the one from the org cheap, snag it.
