Micholob's SE 3.5 conversion progress thread
This has been a work in progress for the last few weeks.
The car is a 'plain Jane' 2001 Champagne SE with a bad knock on cylinder #6.
It was picked up in downtown Des Moines for $250.
The donor engine is a 3.5HO that once was in a 2001 300m that belonged to my older brother. It was in an accident last winter and was parted out.
Engine bay ready to accept the 3.5L. All conversions done (ps lines, ac lines, trans dipstick, ps reservoir, exhaust pipes)
Once the motor is in and deemed road-worthy I will start adding a few other 'extras' from the 300m. The wheels have already been mounted out of necessity.
2004 Chrysler 300m Special 3.5L HO 123k
2001 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.2L 156k
2001 Chrysler 300m 114k (parts car)
2002 Chrysler 300m Special (project car)
