Hey i own a 1990 dodge shadow es, 2.2L TBI 3-speed auto and i was wondering what i could do to make it more performance oriented..

Engine/trans, i already installed a SR high flow intake, 2.5" magnaflow cat, 2.5" aftercat pipe, 2.25" end bend pipe with a magnaflow muffler, oil and oil filter change (mobil one), single champion spark plugs and wires (pre Gapped), drained trans fluid (previous owner didn't take care of the car at all... seriously..

Suspension wise, i'm replacing front shocks and installing dodge neon aftermarket front lowering springs, getting a aftermarket nissan 240sx front strut bar( i have to modifiy in a lil to make it work) and sometime in the near future get aftermarket civic rear coilover sleeves (coil spring with adjustable perch) and new shocks.

Interior, i have a four in one tachometer (rpm meter, oil pressure, oil temperature, water temperature) and don't really know where to began or even know how to install it all up.. have a grant steering wheel and installation kit and already took the airbag out of the oem steering wheel but can't get the damn stock steering wheel off the shaft at all, i need help with that also... and was also wondering if it'd be difficult to install seats (mkIII supra Seats) in the shadow?

Exterior, made a cheap front air dam/front lip, tinted the headlights and taillights, and want to install hid kit in the near future..

any help will be apreciated, thanks....

Steering wheel needs pulled off with a puller. Rent one for "free" from many your local auto parts stores. Advance is a good one to go to, loaner tool program is great - pay for the tool in full, return it with all parts (even broken) and get all your money back.

The cluster you would probably have to splice/attach wires to make it work. You will need to check the two dash wiring scmatics side by side, and be sure the same signals from their respective cluster plugs are present. If they are, then it may be a simple "drop-in" installation. If they aren't you are looking at running wires tofrom their respective signal pinouts on the SBEC, and potentially swapping the cluster plugs for a differnt one.

The seat thing, I have no idea. Worst you could do is try, if you have the replacement supra seats handy. I'd imagine youre lookign at makings osme custom mounting brackets for the toyota seats, at the least thats the extent of the labor to install them.

you will have to make some custom brackets for the MKIII seats, but the big thing there will be the size of the seat, but when you pull it off i would definitely love to see pics as i was thinking about putting a set of 89 Conquest TSi SHP seats in my daytona

Just wondering if you noticed that your tach with "extras" has metric values. Then, I thought maybe you were from somewhere else, but you are in the sates by your sig.

Oil Temp and Pressure you will need to purchase senders. Tach you can rob off the coil. Water temp you usually have 2 senders in the head. One is for the "idiot" light and the other for actual computer. (1 wire verses 2) I dont know if you could piggy back the temp one due to resistance values OR what values your aftermarket tach wants to see. You will have to do some reading on that one.

I would figure out a different air filter for that. It has a filter in thatplastic shoud. with an open element air filter in the engine bay like that, you suck in warm air, instead of cooler air. Best put the other air intake pipe back on, as the power module (behind the batery) pulls cool air from the fenderwell, through it, and into your intake piping.

the filter in the plastic shroud is gone, internal air box is sealed for direct air injection also, and it may be getting warm air more-so but it did gain 2+hp from it and way better accereration, i may make a CAI with a Bypass filter added if i figure out the oil pan installing issues. but that stock intake pipe ain't going back lol. oh and weirdly, mpg inproved also, even though its not denser air.

any header made for the motor aftermarket? or would i have to make my own?
