    Since there's been some talks about Neon's lately and a couple people actually have them on here, I thought I'd share some pics of the progress on the race beater.

    Here's what it looked like when I picked it up:

    I started by changing the seats and painting the cage. When I got the car it had no motor work at all, just a modified exhaust but nothing too too crazy.

    Current Mods:
    Eibach Sportlines
    KYB AGX Struts
    Front&Rear Sways
    Energy Suspension Hyperflex bushing kit
    Autopower Roll Cage
    Frontr Upper Strut brace
    Custom 3" CAI
    AT TB 5.5mm over stock
    P&P'd Intake Manifold
    Pacesetter Header
    Mopar Performance ECU
    Mopar Performance Motor Mounts
    Prothane Mount Inserts
    2.5" HF Cat
    2.5" Straight Exhaust
    Sparco Seats and wheel
    Simpson 5 point Harnesses

    Next to install, already have them:
    NX Wet NOS kit
    Phantom NOS Pres & A/F gauges
    Frog eyes gauge cluster with 2 pods


    It's pretty quick, obviously not nearly as fast as the Accord but still pretty quick. I plan on getting a set of 3/4Race cams, should put the car in the 150whp range without NX. With the NX kit, prolly 200ish whp. Which would be plenty to keep me happy with a DD beater car :)

    I'm hoping for 14's, low 14's would be nice, on the bottle. high 14's no squeeze. Its VERY light, small tires, good TQ and traction. If I hit a high 13 with the thing I would be EXTREMELY happy with the car.

    I dont SCCA race, I have a couple times, but I mostly drag race. I like the cage though for ripping around the mountains by my house, the car is VERY stable and hard to break loose in a corner. I was surprised how well it could handle with the stock 14's on it :)

    why did you buy that car if you dont scca race. it just doesnt seem right. all it needs is a lil love in the right places (and those of you that know me, know how hard it is for me to say that about a neon).

    Keep that log book up to date. IT'll make a world of difference in resale.

    Also, don't care if the block is depleted uranium - aluminum pistons. Don't spray it.

    Just built a motor specifically for nitrous. I lacked the talent to get the tolerances right. The engine was just shy of $10k in parts.

    I just finished installing a 300 shot on an LS1.... I am pretty sure ANY 4 cyl can hold atleast a 50 dry shot.

    You'd be surprised. The DOHC head itself is like a swiss watch.
