D.O.A's 98 Sport / SRT Swap *Updated 08/06/08* With Vids!!!

Post by Canada » Thu Oct 18, 2007 8:25 pm

Well...

My Brother (silversport) and I, along with a few friends have started a little enthusiast's group to build a car (or cars...)

We all (with the exception of one) drive Neons.

The car we are starting with is a '98 Expresso Coupe. It was originally a DOHC, 5 Speed.

Pics of it in the garage it was sitting in for ages.

*Thanks to Grant for giving us on awesome deal on this ride man, don't you worry. The project you started, will be taken good care off.*

On the trailer headed home...

All clean...As much as possible in the pitch black outside, but she looks better...

Thats all for now. next step is stripping it.

:twisted:

Wow. I haven't updated this in ages.
We just finished cleaning everything up nicely.

New brakes were installed, and most importantly, a drivetrain was sourced and picked up!

Will add pics!

Its currently a "No"-Cam as the entire thing is gutted, and it's gonna be a DOHC-Turbo (SRT Swap) once I get some free time.

Yes, I am sure that cat is terribly upset we stole her house. And from what I can tell, the tint is about 15%.

***Update Time!***

Brakes.

For the rear we jus used all new parts. Drums, Shoes, Cylinders, Hdwe and cleaned everything up nice with a luttle lube. :P

For the front we went with drilled and slotted and vented rotors, with a ceramic pad and rebuild calipers.

I've ordered some SS Russell brake lines from Jegs, just waiting on those.

We've got our boost lines, intercooler, and some more misc. small parts ready. Also received an SRT wiring harness that we're going to use for our MS controlling.

New pics for y'all.
