Its taken way too long SRT content

Post by bone-yard-racing » Mon Mar 22, 2010 9:36 pm

But I finally have an SRT-4

Image

05 acr black with a roof and kicker sound

The first step was to get it back to normal by reconnecting the boost solenoids and a set of plugs. After this I drove it a lot put almost 1000mi on her in a week its been a while since I drove a car that I had trouble thinking of ways to improve. And then bang no boost and a CEL the rubber line for the WGA got down on the manifold and melted. The only vac line I had was on a Gvalve 15psi here we come. I started to notice the upper rpm boost cut more and more.

Add AGP WGA because Im suborn I ran it on PCM boost with the Gvalve this made for a very laggy and unpleasant car.

Take 2 run it per AGP's instructions and now its pretty good Im only pulling around 8psi now but its not adjusted correctly.

Now for some fresh oil oh wait the dealership stripped the drain plug :banghead:

How about colder NGK plugs (boy it feels weird not putting champs in a neon)


(An engine bay shot belongs here but I dont have one)



Autocross this weekend on 80000mi KDWs and 80000mi Illuminas this should be a fun ride.

The stripe and badges are gone (buy the detail guy a pack of cigarettes and it looks good)


I need a BBS center cap if anybody know where to buy one.

Also looking for suggestions on wheels Id like to put 275/40/18s all the way around (I have brakes to clear) I was thinking bigger RKs

:rofl: That made my night.

As for your boost issue, sounds like you are having some pretty bad PTB. (Partial Throttle Boost) Normal with an aftermarket WGA off PCM controlled boost. Just have to learn how to drive the car differently witht he throttle. I personally hated it, the stock WGA was the best for the stock turbo.
Congrats on the ride man. GL at the auto-x. :thumbup:

eleventy billion dollars :lol:

The reason for the 18s is simple I need at least a 17 to clear the upcoming 13" brakes and nobody makes a 275/40/17

To heck with Mox's opinion, he doesn't even have a relevant car!


Hey BYR how are you gonna get 3 more inches of tire in there? Low offset with wider fenders? (I think 3" is beyond rolling). Gonna need coilovers too if you even want a shot at it. I was impressed when I heard of a guy running 255's.
