Just some pics.

Debating if I like the wing but crystal said to do it :quotes:

Done.

Much happier with the way the exhaust looks now but now the color is way off to my eyes.

Mint 03 R/T leather wheel.

Shots at various angles to see if I like the wing or not.

I liked this shot for some reason

Factory SRT catback exhaust gets donated to the cranberry DD next week as I picked up a borla in good shape for this car and I am going deaf driving the DD with the R/T mid section.......

It's really amazing how much the srt midsection is that much quieter/mellow on this silver car compared to my DD with R/T midsection.

Originally planned on NIB rota slips royal gun metallic planted on 205/50/15 kumho ectsa's which I can grab for $59 each.

I suck at rim shopping though.

I really need to see them on a car/neon to know if I like them.

Borla exhaust is on, picked up a few other odds and ends.

Got some mint Srt pedal covers since a couple of the knobs were worn off on my swap car, little things like that bother me.

Cleaned out garage today so I can store her for winter.

RB1 FTW!!!

they are nice, and I enjoyed having my RB4 but, no MP3 no WMA, Bluetooth only through Uconnect interface, and you have to have the 6 disc changer if you want to listen to your CDs while using navigation.

But,....man do they look hawt in our cars! Good find Chew :thumbup:

What is CDs? :lol: With an aux interface, MP3s can be played while naving. No problem there.

Thx, traded an indy intake for it. I think we were both thrilled with the trade :).

Next on list is some BBS :thumbup:

I tried the aux integration with a cheap unit and it sucked pretty bad so I gave up after the first attempt. But,...they are awesome and super rare so, good find man :thumbup:



also, I traded the RB4 for a mag intake and cash. Ironic me thinks. :rofl:

Small update

RB1 installed.

Vent visors installed. I like this style, no 3m tape required and they don't stick out as much which looks like shit IMO. :)

Newish floor mats no holes or wear just need a shampooing.

Few pics, had to move her from storage for a day to work on a volvo.

Oddly enough the daily driver looks lower than Candy.......No clue how thats possible....

Candy is on Eibach sports, KYB GR2 struts.

DD is on tokico struts/springs package which IIRC is 1.4" drop.....

Nothing special really, was working on other cars K frame pulled out the clean K frame I had put aside for the SRT swap and swapped all SRT parts over to it.

Any progress better than none I guess.

Kinda at a crossroads right now. Not sure what path I want to take with this car anymore. For now im going to put the final touches on it to make it complete Mount the bbs's, repair the track in sunroof, locate another cluster since the srt swap got mine along with a few other parts that were borrowed from it.

Ive been thinking of just na 2.4 swapping it for a little more oomph but really not sure just yet.

Hunting for gremlins I found a few. Looks like a spring snapped at some point in time and bounced the retainer around engine. That or a dog chewed it. Coincidentally an intake lobe has a groove on same cylinder.

Next up verify pistons are wiseco as advertised. I can see domes through spark plug holes. Ill use the inspection camera/probe in a day or two to verify cylinder condition and pistons and pull oil pan to verify rods.

On a side note those look like magnum springs not cranes as I was told however I was told he bought a complete head so he got duped probably.

Looks like im ordering crane springs and retainers and 2 intake rockers to be reliable....
