Alright. Here we go. I've encountered an obstruction that has caused me to have to sell my baby.
I'll describe it best I can and will add pictures when i get home.
Silver 2001 Dodge Intrepid R/T - All options except for OTIS, EVIC or moonroof (yay no rust or ruined interior)
start off with the bad:
the engine is kaput. :( sadly even a great record of mobil-1 only won't keep every engine alive for eternity and, from the sound of things, i've lost one of my bearings somewhere. I'm not too sure if it's in a place that requires a whole new engine or if a simple rebuild would take care of the problem but i'm not in a financial position to do either at the moment. I've been quoted at $1300 for a new 3.5ho from a couple places so it wouldn't be too extreme to just source a new long block and go back to having fun.
whole car was taken very well care of. Interior is in great shape save for a small very light stain just above the a-pillar plastic bit and the seam on the driver side seat bottom having come loose.
Three winters ago i was driving along minding my own business and another driver decided she'd sat at the stop sign long enough and pulled out into the side of me totaling my car. I purchased it back from the insurance company and sank approximately $7000 into rebuilding it only better. An Eibach 1" lowering kit was installed along with 300m special sway bars. The handling on this car now is amazing. A new hood, fender, door, and bumper rounded out the cosmetic repairs and only the hood remains to be painted. There were two scuffs repaired ( one from someone leaning up against the car and the other from the shop where the body work was done ) those two doors will still need to be painted as well.
The 100,000 maintenance has been done although i'm sure that will be moot if you replace the engine. I also installed the lower final drive gearing from an Intrepid SE to give the car a bit more pep. Also I installed a lightweight pulley on the engine to free some power out of the rotating mass. I forgot to mention that I also replaced/upgraded the brakes. I added drilled/slotted rotors and more aggressive pads to all 4 corners. I got in on that deal offered on the boards a few months ago and picked all the goodies up to make her stop on a nickel. All are still in the car currently.
The cosmetic modifications were kept simple. I didn't want to go too berserk with body mods. I blacked out my tail-lights (soooo many compliments about that) and shaved my emblems. the windows were tinted to 20% ( a bit dark but i consider the few tickes i've paid for it a membership fee to the "i'll tint my windows as dark as i want" club) and black diamond headlights (added after the crash, they're in great shape). I also painted the stock R/T wheels black and that TOTALLY rounded out the appearance of the car. Seriously this car is aaaall silver and black. Unfortunately one of the wheels was destroyed in the wreck and will have to be repainted (i purchased a stock R/T wheel to keep the rolling stock symmetrical) The car has a JVC head unit that has served me well. It plays mp3 cd's as well as the rest of the ordinary listening devices (no cassette)
The tires are in great shape as i had just replaced them in preparation for the snowy season.
on with the awesome:
I love my Intrepid. I love it so that I went and purchased a one-off custom headers back turbo kit that would make this car into the extreme sleeper it deserves to be. A stock R/T will already surprise plenty people on the highway but you add about 8psi of boost and see what kind of fun you can have. Sadly, I never could find a week of Intrepid down time to get the whole thing installed so now it rests comfortably in the backseat/truck :(. This kit is complete with engine management, bigger injectors, turbo, custom one off stainless headers (heat wrapped) and a 3" downpipe and backpipe. Everything needed between the block and the muffler is just waiting to be installed on that freshly rebuilt 3.5. During the repair stage I installed 300M special Axles to support the extra oomph this will provide. Man it makes me sick to my stomach to think of letting this car go but i'm in quite a tight pinch and just have to.
Feel free to ask any questions. I'll be posting pictures this evening. Thanks to all my LH family, for checking out my parting post.
She's a lil dirty from sitting but
here are some large pics
some shots of the trunk full (keeping the box and sub)
some shots of the turbo goodies.
i believe these shots incluce
monster fuel pump
headers (heat wrapped stainles tubing)
aaaaaall kinds of goodies.
I found the list that Rob sent me when I was doing the purchase from him.
-Turbonetics T04B O-trim 0.58 A/R
-Stainless Headers and up-pipe
-Stainless 3" Downpipe and 3" Magnaflow exhaust
-Turbonetics Wastegate - Boost controller
-Greddy Type S Blow off valve
-Stainless intake tubing
-Piggy-Back fully tunable engine controller for fuel/timing adjustments using laptop. Preloaded with fuel map for intrepid.
-OEM A-Piller with dual guage pods for Boost and air/fuel AutoMeter guages.
-Earls stainless braided oil drain hoses and all required fitings.
-Oil pan with drilled and tapped hole for the turbo oil drain hose.
-All required hoses, bolts, gaskets, and clamps.
Turbo assembled a complete kit and spared no expense. He went to great lengths to assure quality and durability. Remember people, he built this for his own car and then decided to turbocharge a crotch rocket. This isn't something that he tossed together. I really wish his website was still up so you could see all the hard work, research, and effort that went into this endeavor. I don't have much interest in keeping the car without the turbo (i need room in the parking lot almost as much as i need money in my wallet) I will hereby lower the overall price of everything i'm selling to $5000 and setting the price to $3000 for the turbo kit alone.
the "stain" in the floor of the trunk is spilled laundry detergent. Cleanest random stain you'll ever find in a used car :)
Thanks for your patience with my slow picture posting.
