restoring 96 intrepid

Greetings fellow Intrepid fans! I had a 96 Intrepid donated to me last January and I have been restoring it since. So far I have put a brand new (miracle find!) transmission in. New brakes, tires, battery, A/C compressor, condenser, windshield and some other misc. parts. I also replaced the sound system with a Factory CD, Cass, AM/FM stereo and Infinity speakers. I used 3.5 2 way, 5.25 2 way and 6X9 3 way. All are Kappa's. There is a factory amp in the trunk which works fine. It sounds great although, I am sure it is not the best. When I was installing the sound system, I found a thread that explained the wiring harness that was of great help. I found another thread on rough idle here due to the Idle Air Controller and cleaning it worked like a champ, Thanks!
I just wanted to say thanks for this forum and for the willingness of people to share knowledge.Thanks! :bigsmile:

You mean my infinity howto? If so, I'm glad it helped you out.

Feel free to post ANY audio related questions in the audio forum.


Be sure to use ATF 4+ transmission fluid in that transmission. MOPAR stuff works best. You can get it from your dealer.

Anything else (besides ATF 3+) will kill it. Including dextron.
