Kris' Challenger
« on: April 30, 2012, 03:45:38 PM »
I bought this as a stock vehicle and have built it up to suit my needs. Not to everyones taste I know but makes for a nice alternative to the Nissan/Toyota.

2011 Mitsubishi Challenger XLS
2.5L Direct Injection Turbo Diesel Auto
Rear Locker Standard from Factory

Added Goodies:-

- ARB Sahara Winch Bar - No Hoop
- Warn 9000lb Winch (Great for pulling Boxxy out!)
- Lightforce 240 XGT Spot Lights
- Double Air Horns
- ARB Hard Mount Compressor with Air outlet in Bull Bar
- Cooper ST Maxx Tires
- TJM Air Tek Snorkel
- EFS Suspension Upgrade
- Cargo Barrier
- Custom 50L Water Tank with rear out let (mounted under cargo blind on the barrier)
- Pro Rack Roof Bars
- Boxxy Built Roof Tray
- TJM Awning
- GME TX 4400 UHF Radio
- Launch onboard diagnostics tool
- Customer 2.5inch mandrel bent exhaust from the turbo back
- Modified inlet manifold (Increased Capacity)
- ERG Block
- Water to air intercooler modification
- Tweeked Computer and Dyno Tune from Brisbane Tuning and Dyno's
- Extended diff breather and locker intake line

Best Mod

The engine mods combined with the exhaust and snorkel - these made it far more drivable and far better to tow with.

Worst Mod

I initially fitted a plug and play chip. While it delivered massive power gains it killed economy and simply highlighted underlying flat spots pre boost without fixing them. Fortunately the chip manufacturer was happy to refund me.

What Next

I currently have a floor mounted goose neck for the iPad coming so that I can use the Hema maps on the run.

I also want to put a low profile wide draw and false floor in the back for storage of recovery gear - this will be another custom job.

Upgrade brakes are on the list - It does not stop well with all the added gear.

Improved roof rack set up as I am still not convinced the way I have it is right.

Pictorial sticker showing Boxxy how to attached his buggered Nissan to the recovery points on the back of the Challenger  :P

Well done! I especially like the front bar :)
I've reached that age where my brain went from

"You probably shouldn't say that"

"What the hell, let's just see what happens!"
