Well I'm sure a few of you saw the car on Craigslist. (Was in cruces for $1k) well needless to say I saw it and saw in my mind here's a budget chance at an Srt! Car is impressively straight for a Srt and ecspecially the price. Issue is it has a bad motor. But came with a big turbo kit and what not. (Garrett 3076) so I went for it. Already have a new 42k mile complete motor on the way. Picked up for 800:) so the plan is to make it stick as a dd and maybe later on get the whole old motor built up with the 3076r. But with purchase I'm trying to get it all up and going for under $3000!

Since the motor is out I'm doing the timing belt, water pump and what not. The whole kit for $170.
Full tune up of course.
And I got some solid mounts for it $140

My catch can setup for $30

So with the purchase and parts so far I'm at around 2200 into it:)

I'm not back! Had it picked up by family though! Shit I sold my 04 for 6800 two years ago after I got all the body work and new paint. I saw it on Craigslist with 40k more miles and asking 8500... Lol

Ya this one is has a few small dent here and there but not bad. And it's a bout to have a 42k mile motor in it, on a budget. So it'll be a decent daily for the price!
