      Cool So there I was, and I bought a Dart

      So I recently bought a 2015 Dodge dart 2.0l 6spd SE.

      I did the limo tint, Injen CAI, magnaflow 2.25 muffler.

      My next mods are gonna be the spectrum tuner, then the race tail light.

      My biggest complaint with the performance of the car over all would just be the pedal lag but with the CAI and exhaust it's gotten better, and hopefully it's gone with the Spectrum.

      I was interested in the pulley, but it doesn't look like a very easy install.

      Anyways glad to be here, lots of good info!

      I installed a lightweight pulley on my 1.4, and the most annoying part was honestly taking off the wheel well covering, that, and the instructions told me to move the idler tentioner the wrong direction and I has assumed for 10 minutes it was just stiff instead of trying pulling it the other way.

      There are a few videos of installing the 2.4 Pulley (which I believe is the same as the 2.0) around, this is the first one I found.


      Doesn't seem any more difficult than the 1.4. Just need a jack/jackstands, a few wrenches/ratchets and 30 minutes of your time.

      So today I did the DIY grounding kit, and I won't lie trying to conceal the wires was a pain. But seriously, it was like night and day! Everything from a smoother idle, to the pedal lag is seriously gone! (Not excagerating this). I would've figured it was gonna take a tuner to actually feel a difference in the pedal, but for 20$ this was absolutely the best upgrade that cost basically nothing but about an hour. I highly recommend it!!!!

      Oh and I also ordered the fog lights kit, since I have the SE it didn't come with them, hoping it won't be to difficult a task to get done. I'm sure there has gotta be some easy install videos... Fingers crossed!

      If you ordered the mopar ones then you will need to add the fog light sales code to the BCM. Checkout the alfaobd thread for steps on how to do this

      So I got the Spyder OEM fog lights mounted (went smooth after I figured out how to get the clips snapped in). I understand the wiring process, but we're can I run the wire thru the fire wall? I spent like 30 minutes trying to find something. The instructions didn't come with a wiring map, just pictures of plug placements... Grr

      If you have an automatic then use the hole where the clutch would be on a manual vehicle
