With your foot *FIRMLY* on the brake pedal slowly shift from park to reverse

There should be a 'dead-spot' where you are not in park and not in reverse, won't light up on the dash to say where your at.

Welcome to red-line revving ability.

Its not safe because it could shift into park, which may cause some issues(never had it happen) or shift into reverse at upwards of 6500rpm which I can just assume your transmission may not enjoy that, or whatever is behind you may cause substantial damages to your car

So you're saying that the engine ignores the rev limiter in the 'no great land' differently than in park or neutral? Interesting...

If you watch the 2.7 spitfire video, you will notice before the last rev I sit in the vehicle to do it and it is held longer and slightly louder.

I can make a 'how-to' video on what it looks like.

I have friends scared of it already, and I can attribute all of my squealing tires on my cheap Nexxan Tires. But man does it make people do a double take that an intrepid is squealing through an intersection from the drop of a hat

Will, you will love it, its about 4x as responsive as the 2.7 was. I don't know if it's the gearing or what but under mild acceleration if you let off before shifting it feels like your in low gear, kinda barks back down sort of.

Sooo....


Since I have the entire wiring harness in the gold car (es model) I was debating ripping out my interior and swapping over to the different wiring to have the auto stick running properly (don't ask, I messed up somewhere and now when I try to upshift I turn cruise on) and I can swap the dash at the same time AND wiring in for ATC from the 300M

I was / am planning on pulling the dash out for a minor mod and my dash currently has cracked pretty bad.

Is this biting off more than I can chew??

A complete 300m for $458? That's stupid cheap. Do you know WHY it was in the junkyard in the 1st place? It doesn't look wrecked and the engine's good so...

The previous owner hit a section of washout on a grid road at speed. The lower rad support took the brunt of the attack and as almost touching the crank pulley.

And it was a 2000 with 230,000km on it.

How is the 300's different from the Trep's?

If you look at the picture, that is the whole lower rad support.


Well, *finally* fixed my leaking oil issue, and did some maintenance and drained out the gear fluid in the diff for some fresh Royal Purple.

It would be MTC to ATC and from the looks of things I may hold off on that for now.
