    My srt-4 project

    Needed something alittle more family friendly then my truck and a friend of mine was selling his 04 srt4 neon so I picked it up. Don't plan on going to crazy with it. Still have to go over it and find out what's been done to it and what needs to be fixed or repaced

    Things done to the car
    - MSD ignition
    - cold air intake
    - upgraded massive intercooler
    - magnaflow catback
    - coil overs
    - upgraded throttle body
    - mopar stage 3 computer
    - upgraded injectors
    - bigger rear sway bar

    So far thats what I've found. Still slowly going over the car

    If you need to do the headlights for a safety (haziness gets called a lot) - the 3M kit from Canadian Tire is great for a quick job. I'd pick up a can of clear coat as well after they're wetsanded to preserve it.

    this is the kit.

    Looks like a fun little car actually, the SRT-4's were pretty awesome when they came out.

    Having a 4-door really is better when hauling family, groceries, dogs, etc around town. Plus it's better gas mileage. Good pick up.

    If that's rust on the hood, you should get it fixed before its too late and have the whole rest of the car polished. Its worth the money to save the paint rather than having to paint the whole car.

    Might order a carbon fibre hood. Don't think there will be much of the hood left when I sand the rust off

    Going back to Neema's experience with that and apparently carbon fiber hoods do not do well in cold weather. Unless you just swap hoods for winter and flat black the stock one.

    Carbon fiber hoods do not fare well in any weather. My friend cracked his lightly closing it in kind of cold weather. And the sun will fade it within a season.

    Looks like you have a fun project .. you shoulda decided to work on the FC tho, it stinks, its loud and isn't good for groceries but its an FC

    Still though it looks like a little TLC will get her back to great condition pretty easy! Congrats

    Sweet nice pick up, I actually like them with the wing on as it stands out from any other SX 2.0 from the back.
