Meh. Back to crappy weather.
Tinkering around in the garage. Took a look under my newly acquired SRT-4 crossing my fingers. Found quite a bit of things that need to be replaced. Car is like missing all its splash shields pretty much. Oil return line that goes under the turbo is seeping. Must of not been installed correctly when he went back to factory turbo. There is a giant hole in the transmission near the slave cylinder... Oil pan gasket is seeping. Slight tear in CV boot on driver side. Trying to track down the exhaust leak that it has on the flexpipe. No bueno on that. Going to take the drivers side wheel off here in a bit and clean all the grease that had sprayed all over the rim/control arm, caliper etc. Needs a new rear wheel bearing and the rear struts look to be shot.

MPX timing belt kit and a new wideband I have acquired so far. Still waiting on the title. I bought the car February 23rd and yet to receive the title. So I legally can't drive it. Its just sitting. Going to cancel my insurance on it for the time being. :/

I will let you know Boostin when we can do that timing belt at your shop but right now I am waiting on the title.

Unfortunately thats how Kansas/Missouri rolls. We get really cold ass winters and then its a flip of a switch and its super hot out. We don't get too much in between. :stab:

Car is all registered. :)

Ya I’m not worried about wet weather traction, tired of the stock pizza cutters lack of traction. I don't think I’ll ever own another set of BFG's, had the KDW 2's and hate them and the wet weather cannot be any worse than those.

Just going on mileage then? Mine is close to crapping out... Whenever I fill up CEL comes on stuck on full. Then after 50 miles or so CEL goes off and gauge starts to work. Its gradually getting worse. It says I only used a 1/4 tank... But I went 160 miles lol

Yup that's how it starts, and then it eventually stops at either full or empty. Ya I fill up around 180 miles all the time.

Thanks again Eric for the timing belt/ waterpump install. Car runs great. Now I need to trace down that exhaust leak...
