Please tell me you're not on the T5...if so be ready for a teardown.
Lol 100% stock t-5 130,000 miles on it. If it breaks, I go bigger and better!

I swear...they either last forever or break first try.

When you do upgrade look into the TKO600, had good luck with those myself. Absolutely indestructible.

I hear ya, this car amazes me every time I run it, the beating I put it through, and it takes it. The motor doesn't smoke AT ALL EVER runs so damn smooth, and I've had it down to the short block to replace headgaskets, and never even changed valve seals. I must have a Wednesday motor. lol But yea driveshaft will prob break on me next, (its still stock), then the trans, and I'll just upgrade as a I go lol

What does a broken axle sound like when it goes?

Is it like a gun shot?

LOL, I've never heard that expression before but it's apt, especially after seeing how some Chrysler employees like to kick back over the lunch hour these days. Must be a hell of a fun car, good luck with the repairs man. I kind of wish I had a Fox body, it would be nice to have a million different options for parts.
