Question for Ottowrkr

First of all want to say thanks to yourself and the rest of the crew for the fine quality peice of machinery that you produced for us. I have had it for 2 months, no problems, rattles, squeaks etc, I love the car. This makes 4 2002 Intrepids on the block in the last 3 months, you have to be doings somthing right. Too bad the boys in Detroit would not advertise the quality you produce. I hope that your crew gets the Charger project, as that will hopefully be my next vehicle :D

2 quick questions for you that have been debated on the generation 2 forums..

Otto, if you could verify that an EVIC could be swapped into a 2002 ES with an existing OTIS, it would truely be appreciateed. There are concerns that the computers are different and will not work on an ES, only the R/T. There is a doa loaded 2001 300M at the dealership near me. Never new you could put a 90 degree bend into a car Apparently slid into a bridge support colum at highway speed.

2nd, can you install the 4 pack CD player directly into the opening below the stereo easily? i.e. is the wiring in place for it behind the rubber insert? Can the top line stereo just replace the CD player version? Do you actually need a new steering wheel for the sterring wheel mounted audio controls? Are the steering wheel audio controls even available on the 2002 intrepids?

O.K. there are 5 questions, on the Charger note, what have you heard thru the grapevine?

Thanks again and keep up the good work. It should look pretty sharp when everyone on the block lines up their car this summer, our wall of Intrepids will put the Ford crew accross the street to shame.

The junker is a 2002 ES with the changer and head unit, with the same Infinty speaker setup as I have.

Presently I have the upgraded head unit with the bass/treble control and CD player.

I do not understand why DC does not give us the option of items like EVIC over the OTIS unit, steering wheel audio controls, etc. For the most part it seems we buy our vehicls based upon body styles, seating capabilities etc. I would be more than willing to fork out an extra $100.00 bucks for the audio controls etc. Nowadays items such as wiring harneses and computers are identical across many product lines, thus if I do not want the upgraded interrior and body of a 300M, why should we be penalized by not being able to get some of the creature comforts for our cars? My 2 cents worth.
