My Indy Red 1991 Dodge Spirit R/T (1 of 774) / Exterior
Just a little walkaround video of the Spirit R/T my dad and I own.
Bought in June 2006 from Cindy of FWD Performance in Spring, TX after she
rebuilt the stock Garrett TB03 turbo and
put a new head gasket and timing belt on after she rebuilt the head. Car
has documented a little over 186k miles, but sadly the odometer broke just
after we got it, and has been replaced by another 1991 Dodge Spirit R/T
instrument cluster. I believe it still has the original PCM, so it should
still have the accurate miles logged into it. Car is on it's second paint
job from the mid-90s and the interior is nearly perfect with only one
cigarette burn in the passenger seat (which is very hard to see unless
you're looking hard for it) and the carpeting is sunfaded. The car finally
has the model and era correct radio head unit that the car came with from
the facotry according to the build sheet (Infinity 2 cassette with 5-band
equalizer). This is an all-option car minus the short overhead console
with compass and exterior temp readout. Power driver seat, windows, door
locks, mirrors, Infinity 2 sound system, and ABS.
This car has a manual Boost
controller set to just under 15 PSI with the Mopar Performance "+20" (42
lb/hr) injectors, an AccuFab AFPR, turboXS Type H-RFL BOV, K&N factory replacement
air filter and full 3" turbo back Exhaust with just a hi-flow cat and no
muffler or resonator.
This particular car was a Product Evaluation Vehicle owned by Chrysler
Corporation since mile 1 and was sold at auto auction in Atlanta, then was
sold to another owner in either AL or MS, then it went to Spring, TX and
was driven for a few years, then the turbo died and Cindy from FWD-P bought it and
rebuilt the head and turbo and we bought
it on eBay from her.
Needs a clutch, but it'll still rapidly bottom out the 120 MPH speedo. :D
Also needs to have the front bumper and trunklid spoiler repainted.
Apologies for the water droplets after the rev-up from the Exhaust; that'll teach me to put a camera behind
a running Exhaust like that again.
1989 turbocharged chrysler lebaron 2.2 back to life--GOTSPL--
its the phantom. Been down for 11 months and its back ---Runs 14-15psi fwd
i snapped in the middle of racing the front bracebar that attaches to the
trans mount with the engine torge.it was originally welded so we drilled
6-3/4" bolts through the frame and it holds. then shortly afterwards the
steering collum snapped in half while racing so it took us 11 months to
figure out how to replace it with another model lebaron which doesnt come
with blinkers or the right harness on the collum.When we cut off the other
harness it effected the brake lights so were trying to fix it.
