    Re: 1989 Dodge Spirit 2.5L Turbo Upgrades :-)

    Any recommendations on a A413 rebuild kit? I found a bunch on rockauto, but they all say 30TH.

    https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...build+kit,8512

    or should I use a 31TH rebuild kit???

    In other news, I picked up a 1991 Spirit 2.5 TBI as a parts car. STUPID CHEAP (price of scrap). Runs and drives too. Might need to find a 2.4l car and make a swap happen. She might end up becoming a Lemons racing car once I get the VW and Spirit Turbo done.



    I'm using parts to spruce up my Turbo interior and converting to manual windows for simplicity. Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric coating worked surprisingly well.

    Went from blue to light gray.



    Unfortunately, the Arduino LCD display project has hit a wall. The programming is challenging, but I do have some buddies with programming experience trying to figure it out. Crossing fingers...

    PS: Gonna snap up a 31TH rebuild kit from RockAuto since the internals are the same

    Does anyone know how to remove the brightwork around the windows? The parts-car pieces are in much better shape, and Id like to transfer them over.

    I seem to recall them being held in place by rivets. It's been a while since I've really looked at some though. I need to replace the stuff on CSX 497, so I'll be following this pretty closely.

    A lot of that trim is key hole mounted. Look for a screw at one end, remove and it should slide off the studs.
    1994 Shadow Sedan. 2.2 N/A, A568 382,000 miles. (In the family since new).
    1987 Shelby CSX #418. Long term rebuild and restore.
