I named my Dart Mini Me because it looks like a little version of my Charger.





i got my Dart to be my daily driver. When I bought it, I swore I wouldn't mod it.





Well except for getting rid of the ghastly front plate.



But other than that, the car was intended to be a utility, and nothing more.

Well, that didn't last long LOL. We got rear ended a year in, just a little scuffle that scraped the lower valence. I replaced that with a valence with dual exhaust cutouts. Oops, had to fill them, so I got the Magnaflow catback exhaust. And you can't just get an exhaust, so I also grabbed an Injen CAI and GFB DV+. And then I declared it was good, and that I would buy no more.

Very very nice. Those blue/purple pipes sure show up! "i got my Dart to be my daily driver. When I bought it, I swore I wouldn't mod it." :haha: Nice pictures. I like the classic black sinister sleeper look.

Really loving what you've done so far man; looking all the more forward to having a little extra money come my way so I can pamper my baby, too.

After installing the boost gauge, I noticed that my boost seemed a bit lower than usual. Since I installed the throttle body spacer and boost gauge, I decided it was a good time to do a boost leak check. Got boost leak tester? Anyone modifying their turbo Dart should have one. I got mine here:

PRODUCTS - BOOST LEAK TESTERS - By Size - Universal - 2 inch - TURBO BOOST LEAK TESTERS



One thing to note when performing the test: if you have left the factory boost leak on the evap line unmodified, you will have to temporarily plug it to perform a boost leak check.

I'm glad I checked it. One of the molded ports on my Eurocompulsion cold side pipe, the one I use for my MAP sensor, was found to be leaking. Here is how I had it:



I removed the vacuum line and plastic hose insert, installed the MAP sensor directly on the molded port, and tested again. No more leak. And that turned out to be my only leak.



I took it for a test drive after and was happy to see that I had found my few missing pounds of boost.
