Ok Mopar fans you can ease up on the
hate encouraging emails because I am finally doing the ‘turbo dodge’ Theme Tuesday many of you have requested.
While Dodge has a habit of turbo charging random vehicles their owners are generally not down to to put them on the ground.
After sifting through many fairly negatively toned threads about stance I was able to find a decent selection of lowered Mopar vehicles that came from the factory equipped with snails (with a few exceptions).
A few of you also helped out with emails as well.
So what these were/are really Mitsubishis? They were sold here under the Dodge platform so it wouldn’t be right not to include at least a couple
I once inquired about buying a turbo Daytona, it was sitting outside a local shop with the motor in the hatch. The owner said he would put it back in for two thousand dollars, I ended up with my e30 and that car was never fixed.
Didn’t post too many of these only to leave the door open for a dedicated Theme Tuesday at a later date on SRT’s in general.
Omni and Omni GLH
Dodge gets a lot of credit (from me) for releasing a car with the acronym ‘Goes Like Hell’ attached to the name. Could you imagine that happening now?
No me either.
Alright its done! Happy? 😛
Oh right, Caravans, Shadows and Shelby Chargers!
Now I am done.
Wheels from weldcraft?
hope so, I love those guys haha
Also the black srt swapped omni is on ver6 wrx wheels.
JP gets it widened ‘rado steels.
They look like Mk2 Jetta steelies, but those were 4 lugs.
dude massive respect for this one
Yep! Those are Corrado 5 lug steel wheels…
Thank you for posting my glh. I will aquire another some day. Awesome theme Tuesday!
I could tell ya, but I’d have an unfair advantage. 😉
They’re Corrado Steelies. They’ve been widened and staggered. Runnin 0 offset in the rear and +15 in the front.
Chris shot you an email
The Dodge Conquest was a Mitsubishi. Sold here in Oz as the Starion. Apparently when they decided on the name, the Japanese accent turned “Stallion” into “Starion”. Big fan of the Starion, rather similar to the Mitsubishi Sigma (Galant in most non-Oz countries) and Scorpion (Sigma coupe). Came with either the 2.0L or 2.6L 4 cylinder but very little in the way of factory turbos for us.
Didn’t stop me adding a turbo to the various 2.6L Starions, Scorpions and Sigmas I had over the years 😛
Yes, the very first thing on most of us Mopar owners minds is performance. Everything else takes a backseat. I do feel that as a community Mopar owners are a lot less connected than many other brands due to a very close minded approach to modding. The belief that if it doesn’t make it go faster then it’s rice is fairly common amongst Mopar enthusiasts. Very few of us ever go against the grain and those that do don’t last very long before they move on to something else.
The black “SRT” swapped Omni is not SRT swapped at all. It is a hybrid motor with a 2.0 DOHC head.
And the wheels, not Ver6 WRX. Ver7 USDM WRX wheels, off my 2002 Bugeye to be exact.
Sorry Justin, I must have misread I will change that up.
The Silver GLH with the girl / FL tag is my photo.
I’ll add credit for you!
