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.
1989 Chrysler LeBaron in-depth tour
This is a video of my 1989 Chrysler LeBaron. The color is light pewter. It
has a 2.2L turbo II engine, 16" lace
wheels, leather, and an Infinity 1 audio system.
I thought it might be interesting to put up a video of this car as well,
although it isn't in a as good shape as all of my other cars are/have been.
The car was hit by a truck during the summer of 2008 while it was parked
alongside a street. I decided to keep it and restore it. Because it has had
a complete lack of maintenance making the car technically sound took some
time. There were many thing that were worn and had never seen any upkeep at
all. Furthermore, I decided to have the engine swapped to a turbo version, which turned out to be a very bad
ide because the revised engine broke down after two rides because of a bad
I didn't have it resprayed yet, partly because I first want to be sure that
this engine WILL keep on running.
Enjoy the video!

How to identify these engines, sure there are easier ways, but here is the
Oh yeah, you can see the build date from going underneath the car, you

VIN decoding may not work for pre 1988 models.
Enter VIN in caps on the Dodge site, or else.

1985 Dodge Daytona Turbo
A video of my Daytona, there hard to find now. I had one for my first car
back in 1995 and always thought they were neat cars. 2.2L turbo, 146 hp and around 170 torque was not bad
back in 1985. I recently sold this car to a young kid I'm hoping he don't
