well I'm bored and dont have anything to do.
So I figure I'll bring my project onto here since I got it going on other forums.
Note: excuse any typos or inconsistencies lol bottle of scotch already half done
Well from the start.. my escapades during my undergrad began with a 1998 Dodge Neon R/T. Flame red with factory silver stripes (only R/Ts came with these stripes)
Here she is:
Rocking my 16" enkei's RPO1
Older pic of it when I still had the factory wing and SRT4 17" wheels:
Well then this happened:
Was behind a 95 mustang when his hood flew off and made me swerve...
soo I completely gutted everything from it and called a redneck to come pick it up and carry it to the junk yard.
At the time of the accident I had:
Unorthodox Racing underdrive crank pulley
CAI (filter was in the front bumper lol)
Kirk Racing Long Tube Header
Screaming Demon Coil Packs
Mopar Plug Wires
Alternator Over Drive pulley
Strut Bars (Upper and Lower, Front and Rear)
As well as the stereo set up and gauges and other stuff I'm forgetting
Plus I had other stuff packed up in my room that I never put on...
Anyway with this set up I was taking on Eclipses, Mustangs, civics (on par with the SI's), SERs, cavaliars, etc.
anyways I had too much sheit to change cars now and I couldnt afford RWD in mn winters
sooo... I got my another neon.
This time a 98 Black R/T 2 door for cheap...
It was basically a shell I picked up. The guy was parting it out so it didnt come with engine, trans, headlights, gauge cluster and some other interior pieces I forgot about. Anyways I had all that sheit from my wreck soo no biggie...
I cant find pics of when I got it though but anyways here are pics of the work in progress
The car didnt come with ANY options. So i added them myself.
I added Map Lights, Vanity Mirror Lights, Tilt Steering, Ash tray light, Glove Box light, Key Ignition Light and did a full interior conversion to a 2004 Neon SRT4 (Seats, steering, center counsil).
Also added remote start and other junk lol
I added mopar X-high rate springs, KYB GR2 struts, full prothane suspension bushings as well as the point less upper strut bars lol The car came with the lower ones already
shots of the bushings and suspension stuff.. I didnt take much pics because I was super dirty and didnt wanna hold the camera while doing it:( PLus I was too busy cussing. That sheit is hard to do by yourself
Out from the wreck
Ugly on the stand
162,000 MILES... completely stock internals. Regular oil change intervals.. cheap walmart oil and filter lol and no I never babied the engine.. I just let it warm up before I abuse it
still got cross hatching
Painted the block
Picked up a gasket matched head (intake and exhaust)
Took out all the springs and replaced them with Crane Springs and Ti retainers
Added Crane 14s Cams
Put head back on
Added: AEM Adjustable Cam Gears, UR UDP, alternator overdrive, ARP headbolts and yes i'm keeping my PS and AC.
Cleaned up engine bay
ok i'm stopping for now. I'm getting bored lol
I'll add the trans work and engine drop in pics later. As well as the other stuff i left out
