I purchased my SRT-4 during my '04 OIF II tour through the Exchange Auto Sales program and immediately began ripping it apart and prepping it for some heavy AutoX and HPDE use.

Here's a quick run down:

292HP/334TQ @ The Wheels ( 26PSI) - Tuned by RealTune Performance
Mopar Stage II PCM
Mopar Stage II Injectors
Mopar 3 Bar MAP, 2 Bar MAF
AGP WGA ( modified )
RealTune Head modification ( ...ssshhh... )
RealTune FPR & Fuel Return Kit
DTEC EBC
CCA FMIC
MAXXFab 3" SS Side Dump Exhaust
TEIN SS Coilovers w/ Custom Spring Rates
SS Brake Lines
Upgraded bushings and mounts
35% STS
5Zigen 17x8 FN01R Wheels w/ Potenza RE01 235's

I won't bore you with details about how every vacuum line has been rerun, fenders rolled to fit wider tires, corner balancing, and boost-by-gear, but I will tell you that all of the non-shiny things that usually get overlooked, because they don't come with a sticker or are easily noticed on the street, have been sweated over.

She's not expensive, she's not gonna win any beauty pageants, but she will make passengers on back roads pee their pants and GT Fan Boys sweat on the Highway. She's my Spoil-of-War, and my weekend track warrior, and still one of the ( if not THE ) funnest cars I've ever driven or owned.

Enough typing. Reading is dumb. Look at some pictures.



Here's my Dad picking her up in Monroeville, PA. I was still in Iraq, so I would have been kinda hard for me...

I wasted no time in tearing apart perfectly good factory parts and replacing them with better ones, made by the most skilled and anally-retentive primates the automotive world has to offer ( ...as far as Neons go... ).

Now before some idiot makes some dumb "that doesn't look safe at all" comment about my crash bar, I'll just let the less informed ponder suspension geometry and dynamics with 2 free-floating front rails... Have fun!

Stock vacuum line design and quality leaves something to be desired...

Back together with new suspension and wheels on ( at the time, Tenzo Drivex 7's, 18x8). Bushings were also burned out, scraped and repressed. New Exhaust also added with 3" DP.

Eyelids actually help block the HID conversion from blinding people in the mirror. Don't like the CF look, but I'll fix that later.

Lightly tinted the taillights and 3rd brake light. Also shaved the rear badges & keyhole and filled in the spoiler holes in the deck of the trunk.

Didn't like way the steering felt, due to excess scrub radius caused from the offset of the Tenzo's, so...

I finally got in my FN01R's ( that I had been waiting a year and a half for ). They're built with perfect dimensions to match my setup, so steering was back to being crisp and balanced. 5Zigen told me that they only made 16 wheels in the black & polished color combo in that configuration, so if I bend one, just start crying.

The black one with the grey stripes beside mine, runs 9 sec QTR mile times, and holds the SRT World Record for a 5 speed tranny. "ERabbit23" YouTube it.

See that pretty little bottom lip up front? Turns out parking garages hate them. I guess civil engineers only drive jacked up trucks. So I broke it. So I fixed it. That's right. This boy can fiberglass too. ...but I can't find any 'before' broken pics. Sorry for that... Dupli-color. Cause I'm a classy guy!

Enough pictures of shiny shit. Time to get real, and waste some high octane and tourture some soft-compound rubber through copious amounts of barometric pressure and torque!

Thanks WrightHeight.

Here's a video from 2006 from when I had it tuned. Remember kids: 2006. God didn't invent fancy video phones back then, so those crazy moving picture shows were a big deal...
