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
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.
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.
