-= TCPMeta's 2002 SE =-

I decided to create a new sig page for my SE.

2002 Inferno Red Dodge Intrepid SE


I bought the car for $800.00. It had a blown 2.7L but lasted 167,597 miles before its demise. The only issues with the body was a broken spoiler mount and the passenger side rear door was hit by a on coming Jeep.

Interior Modifications
Autostick
Cloth to Leather swap
OTIS
Pioneer speakers in rear deck and doors
Stereo from my old ES with 4disc changer
Red neon in trunk (replaced the wussy bulb that gives hardly any light)
Custom sift bezel, boot and shift knob

Engine bay Modifications
Blacked out theme with red and touches of chrome
Custom battery tie-down

Drive Train
3.5L high output
Wireharness from a 2004 Concorde
Custom eight gauge ground cables
3000 Stall torque Converter
ASP Pulley
4.0L V6 cams
Polished lower intake manifold
K&N ram air filter kit (It's not really a CAI system)
B&M 4 pass transmission cooler

Exhaust
Flowmaster 40 delta - single inlet dual outlet
OEM front resonator
Test pipes from Jr's mufflers
Stock manifolds (Decided to skip the LX headers)

Before

After



Here are a few shots from the build up.

The trip home after I bought it.


Look ma, no engine!


Cleaned up and some fresh paint.


Where did the cats go?



I can do some nifty things in MS paint.


I hate peanuts.


Parts car after Ed and I removed the transmission.

I know where the brick roads are. It's right around the corner from that "castle house" in the first few pics in my sig thread.

I'm thinking to buy a set as well after I get a ES bumper or at lest some kind of fog lights installed.

Today I was planning to repaint the trim around the windows but decided to see what some rubbing compound would do and it's pretty much brought it back to life.

Devan (EagleESI) came by today and we installed the rear O2 sensors and also installed the hood.

We took it on a test drive around the block a few times and while doing so Devan took some glamor shots.

Here I am.


One of a kind glamor shots by Devan during the drive.



He also took some video but im saving that for a compilation video.

How's it running now, with the sensors installed?

I feel bad I couldn't meet up with Devan while he was up. I hope he had a good time at the show.

The car has all of the needed sensors. I need to reset the PCM and see if the rear O2 sensor codes go away.

Don't know why there is a transmission malfunction fault code, runs fine on the test drive.

Have a small issue with the coolant reservoir. It has a hairline crack on the side and it squirts out coolant in a fine mist. I have a extra one laying around in the garage to use as a temporary solution. Reason why I say this is because I have had to replace it in my old car twice and this will be the third time. I'm planning to fabricate one out of aluminum. I'm going to cut open the bad one to take a look see on all of the channels that is in it. I know there is one that goes down the left side next to the fill spout.

Your car is looking sharp.....I'm in the process of doing my 2.7 to 3.5 swap...I'm working on finishing off the rebuild process in my 3.5. I have been following your 3.2 to 3.5 swap I think in your 2000......how is that one running? Did you ever put back on your JBA headers?

It's been a while and thought I would update this.



The car is running perfect now. A few months ago I had to swap out the transmission, new brakes, new thermostat, and heater core bypass. I'm chasing a rattle that only happens when it's cool out and is noticeable when im going 45MPH. Then again what do you expect with a car that has almost 200,000 miles on the clock. I gave it a bath the other day and now it hurts my eyes when the sun hits it lol.

As for the answer on the 2000 ES that became the doner/parts car when I bought the 02 SE. It was a cheaper move since I would be spending a grand on wire harnesses and such when I just paid 800 for a newer car that needed a new motor. Not to mention I have a slew of replacement parts from the old car such as a second transmission, body panels, bolts, sensors, and so on.

I gave up on the JBA headers, when you get down to it the wicked bend on the down pipes wouldn't be much better then the stock manifolds. However I do have plans on fabricating a bolt and play set, just have to find someone that is willing to laser cut some flanges.
