Re: 1991 Dodge Spirit ES Turbo - $1000
2.5 T1, A-523 trans. If I remember right, there were only 318 made in 1991 with this engine/trans combo, hence why I really want to keep it away from the crusher.
I was sleep deprived when I wrote the first post, so here's some more details. Other mods I forgot to list were the +20% injectors, and FWD-P stage 3 computer. I also still have the factory SBEC. Other things of note that'll need attention, the heater usually only blows lukewarm, but warmer through the defrost, and sometimes actually blows hot, and there's the faint smell of coolant occasionally, although i don't think it leaks. Haven't investigated yet. Also I was a little disingenuous in calling the rust in the wheel well some bubbling. It's a 2 inch hole. It's localized and the metal under it's clean, but that needs fixed sooner than later. Also the front suspension is OE with 188k, so the struts are of course shot. It kinda handles like a radio flyer wagon. I have a set of shocks for it, but lack the tools to do it myself. When the weather warms I'm gonna see about getting this car back on the road and titled, but I'm using most the insurance cash to get myself something a little more suited to my sub poverty level budget as far as maintenance goes. This car's definitely a project I will admit, and needs some TLC inside and out, but it's worth the effort. I'll get some more photos tomorrow.
