    Awesome.

    And I found another antenna to bend up. I want to be cool again.

    Re: Skibbe's Shelby Charger Updates!

    Had a wandering passenger front wheel. Checked the bushing that holds the rack to the k frame first, didn't solve the problem. (Though if anyone knows how to find a manual rack passenger side rubber bushing, let me know... RockAuto keeps sending one for a power rack)

    Well, it ended up being the internal bushing in the rack itself. The plastic stock bushing disintegrated into about 60 pieces. An oilite bushing was installed, documented at this thread here: http://www.turbo-mopar.com/forums/sh...elp&highlight=



    I put a new inner tie rod end on while it was apart. Much better now.

    I've been eyeing the old intercooler piping... it is showing its age, the wrinkle black is scrapped up, and it was run for convenience over form. The crossed over pipes are difficult to work on and just look cluttered. The BOV seems to be leaking at about 20PSI as well. It is just a first gen DSM BOV.

    So time for some aluminum replacements. And some practice welding thin aluminum...

    All welded up. I didn't like the polished look, so I scuffed them up with a purple scotchbrite for a brushed look.

    I left room to run a 3" pipe for the inlet to the turbo... but the big K&N I picked up interfers with the shift linkage. Need to either lower that bracket or just run the 3" up into the nose.
