Default Aftermarket Spoiler


Im wanting to put a larger aftermarket spoiler on my 04 Xfire. I figured out how to disconnect the stock one so it doesnt go up at 60mph. But I cant find one that will fit the sloping rear. Also, if any of you have found a good deal on side splitters if you can point me in the right direction.

The only option for changing the spoiler is to use the SRT6 spoiler.... anything else will not fit and will look very bad (my opinion).....

I think I speak for the 99%'s here.

I agree. For the sake of all that is Holy-Please step back from the Crossfire...

And I have to ask: where did you get the High Stall Torque Converter?

I see the devils work.
I think an exorcism is needed here.

No....in an SRT, which uses the same Stall speed converter as a Limited, I would think.

I was obliquely referring to the OP who has a NA. See my point?

OK, so are you suggesting that this "drag racing" performance mod would be a waste of time on a Limited? Or are you simply surprised somebody would actually spend the cash to try it on a non-supercharged car?
I guess I am missing the point. Sometimes I can be a little slow on the up-take.

I read the article that I added to my post above and it looks like a waste of money, just like the hot air 'ram' intakes.

In a way-we're both from Madison, Wisconsin (God's Country...at least away from the UW campus and the headquarters of the Freedom From Religion Foundation) and have haunted (him more recently! 'Til '97) the same bars there!

Serious drag racers use them, so I'm pretty sure they improve times, or they wouldn't waste their money.
I've only owned one car with a high stall speed converter, and I didn't even know it had one. But I never could figure out why it was such a slug out of the hole when ever I would just floor it when taking off.
I'm not one to brake torque my cars except at the drags.
But when I took the car to the drags once, (just to see what it would do) I was pleasantly surprised.
With un-opened headers, no cats, aluminium high-rise manifold, a 4 brl carb (intead of a 2 brl.) with 3.54 gears it ran high 14's. Not bad for a 1977 compact with a stock "cammed" 304.
The SRT with the custom made HSSC, runs 11.7's (I think) and I'm not sure if its owner ever posted anything about his mod, so I'm going to respect his privacy and not "out" him.
