My new 2003 SRT4 =D (pics+questions)

Post by 7angofragger » Sun Jun 07, 2009 12:46 pm

Hey all! I finally got me an SRT4!!!! So i got the car for $7350 with 68594 miles... So it turns out that this guy was a honduh owner.... Which means that this car was friggin rigged when i got it :mad: ... Turns out that the car was wrecked on the passenger front and rear by hitting a deer (which he neglected to mention to me)... It has been repainted a couple times looks like... But, it has a new radiator :).... Anyways, turns out the car has the Tein super street coilovers that have the 32 way adjustable knob... the guy had left the factory blowoff valve on, along with a turbo xs... had the TIP sensor completely unhooked, with he vacuum line not even blocked off... but all in all, i blocked off the factory blowoff valve, bought a new tip sensor and hooked it up, fixed a couple unhooked vacuum lines, changed the oil and pcv valve, and cleaned it up real nice... i just picked up a set of stage 1 injectors for 30 bucks, and traded my apexi afc neo for a stage 1 computer... ill have to get it re flashed... but to run about 18 psi, im gonna need to get a bigger intercooler, and a 3in DP right? i think that's all i need...

you dont need a bigger DP or fmic for 18psi...but do it anyways, the car will thank you.

I like it in yellow, Id never own a yellow one, but I like them. Good find.

Wow man seems like you got a nice pickup there.....here is what i would suggest for a fmic and downpipe....save up and get yourself a downpipe with electric cutout, dont even bother buying an exhaust. Also get yourself a 3'' O2 housing, thatll be perfect for your exhaust side. Youll gain a nice amount of horse and tq with just those 2 mods and your spool time will be instant. I wouldnt suggest a bigger FMIC unless your going bigger turbo, you wont gain much with a HUGE fmic other than looks, that tiny snail just can push enough air fast enough for you to really benefit from anything other than appearance. Find yourself a nice direct fit (spearco, cca, agp, etc) becuase anything is better than the poor flowing stocker. I would also suggest a 3'' cold air intake as well, they all yeild around 10-12whp and about the same tq. Those are just some mods that in conjunction with 18psi will get you a ton more power and the car will feel great!! Have fun!!

Yea itll help some....but hitting that wall from 3'' to that tiny 2.25 exhuast isnt gonna do much...unless of course you take the exhaust off and run open downpipe :grin:
