What is the car doing when you turn the key that you have bought 3 starters ahead of time? Kinda a odd diagnosis I'm picking up on. If the original was bad. Okay. Replace. Put in another. Still no start.....start looking elsewhere.

I got three starters at once because they were used and he wasn't sure which one was good, so it was trial and error. Like I said, it starts now haha

I would think after trying the first one it would START to get redundant.

Zing.

Well. It's been 4 years since I've been here pretty much. The car runs and Drives lol I've bought and sold a bunch of wheels, messed around with tire sizes, and misc. other parts. I moved out of my parents place and the car just sat out of sight out of mind while I bought and sold parts for it haha. SO, here's where I'm at with it now. I wanted to be low and stancey, but that didn't fit my driving style. So, after months and months I found the direction I want to go with the car and here we are.

-Chargspeed reverse scoop
-NRG hub/quick release
-sparco steering wheel
-17mm rear sway bar
-whiteline front and rear strut bars
-16x8 BBS properly filled and re drilled from 5x120
-205/50/16 Ohtsu's
-Sparco R100 seat (on the UPS truck currently
-Bakemono S201 Mirrors (out to be delivered)
-Lots of maintenance
-new rear quarter panels on the way
-Stripped the back half of the car and deleted the A/C
-Infernofab Test pipe/header w/catback exhaust

I'm sure I'm forgetting some things. But here we are, I copied and pasted my last update from another forum.

OH, I also have a 2.5/5 speed sitting around waiting for a rebuild and then get swapped into this.

Some of my parts came in..UPS fvcked me good so I have to wait for my seat, mirrors and rear strut bar are delivered this week. However, I installed my quick release and front strut bar. Painted the wheels black (will get powdercoated this winter) raised it up and evened out the camber to be more functional. Still messing with the ride hide to find the "sweet spot". But, for now here are some pictures.

Also...
Recently picked this 99 F250 Super Duty up. 7.3, Auto, 2WD. 250+ on the motor/body and 150k on the trans.
Plans are to fix what needs to be fixed first.
I also need to figure out whether to lift the front to match the back, or lower the back to match the front. I'll end up towing here and there, so any opinions would be great.

Done so far :
MBRP 4" turbo back
RiffRaff Intake
New Pads/Rotors all around
New to me driver seat
Edge CTS2
New fexplate

To Do:
New Torque Converter
Tow Mirrors (can't see with these )
DJM rear shackle kit (drops 5", should level out nicely)
New shocks (purchased)
Wheels/Tires
Chip, Turbo and Injectors
Head Unit/Speakers
Call it a day.

And the Daily...
2015 Dodge Dart SXT. 2.4L Auto.

I have springs and a rear sway bar for it. Just haven't put them on. Might find a decent set of wheels and leave it alone. We shall see.

Bakemono mirrors and my Whiteline rear strut bar came in. Installed those and continued to rip out anything in the interior from the front seats back.






Car is suuuuuuuper dirty. A bunch of little things I need to get taken care of. Going to hopefully start the process of the 5 speed swap next month.
