I could have sworn there was a link for how to smooth and paint your intake 5.7L manifold. Anyone got that? I searched and didn't see it.
its probably in the How do i everything thread

not really a MOD, but it sure is cost saving!

got this from our brothers at lxforums.com

This applies to the WA580 (NAG1) 5 speed automatic.

If you are doing any tranny maintenance or upgrades, and you are in need of a new transmission filter.....

Part #52108325AA

STOP! & SAVE SOME $$$


I called a local Chrysler dealership and was quoted $41.85 plus a $0.50 environmental charge.

I then called the local Mercedes-Benz dealership... $18.29, no environmental charge.

MB Pat # A 140-277-00-95

LESS THAN HALF PRICE, DIRECT FROM MERCEDES-BENZ!

Both dealerships I contacted are in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. About 2 blocks away from each other.

Exact same filter, both the MB and Chrysler part numbers appear on the box.


If you do buy it from a Chrysler dealership, it still comes in the Mercedes box.

LOL, price gouging at it's best. When I put the Daytona exhaust in my 3.5L, I bought the two exhaust brackets for the drivers side from the dealer. One of the packages had the "list" price right on the package as being $6 and some odd cents. Dealer price for me to buy them was over $13 each. Nothing like a 100% mark up on parts.I understand Chrysler is broke, but gouging the customer isn't the way to make more money.

Hey guys. I'm not sure if a thread like this has been compiled yet, but I thought I'd make it a little easier to access some cheap or free mods for all of the new people that join our wonderful forum!

These are not all, but they are the most common. This is more of a beginning point for new modders to get ideas.

If you have an idea, please submit it. If I've missed something, please submit it. And If you have a better link than one I have provided (since there are ALOT on the same subject matters), well you know what to do!

On a side note, I'd like to thank all of those people here that have taken time from their busy lives to help us "noobs" with modding one Helluva car! Thank you!

Don't buy a cheap telescope to begin with. Get some decent binoculars like the Meade9x63 or or even 7x50.Download a program like Celestia,which will show you where everything is,or better still buy 'Starry Night 4' from Warehouse Express.They've got it in the 'special offers' list. It's a dream of a program,and you'll never outgrow it.
dude wtf are you talking about
