I miss my intrepid, alot.
So today after work, I went cruising around town to see what we had locally available for intrepids.
Everything is crazy over priced BUT I found one for $500 with a 'slight' issue...
2000 SE 2.7l, old man almond, 246,xxxkms... Doesn't run. Computer is fried and it will cost over $3000 (wjat the dodge dealer told me) to fix it... (also is sitting AT said dodge dealer)
Here is where I need help.
Remember when my first 2.7l went and I bought a parts car for the engine?
2001 SE 2.7l, lightly scratched and dented blue, 151,xxxkms...
Anyone guess where this is going??
Will the 2001 computer swap over to the 2000 with ZERO Issues??
The bod is MINT on the 2000, may need the timing chain and water pump etc, but I willwait on that till it at least starts first.
Regardless, it may be worth the $500 as I will be in need of various body panels for my 99, but it would feel great to get back behind the wheel on an intrepid again!! And I can continue with pursuing 2.7l performance tweaks, like the exhaust and what not...
Thanks for reading the rant, and hopefully this should work out perfectly fine aside from the possibility of the odometer being wrong, but I don't plan on selling it, just keep it as a back up maybe gift it to the girlfriend so she doesn't have to drive her 'death trap' (99 grand am with more wrong with it than right)
