Haha, thanks man.

Not many people use purple. I actually really like the color purple lol.


I need to repaint it black and redo the interior.

So today i got the PT lashers in, 2.7 rockers, cams in and torqued down. Bolted the Header up and Intake Manifold and Alternator bracket.

All that is left to do is easy stuff. The timing belt, time it, throttle body, vacuum hoses, hook up a couple radiator hoses, hook the wiring up, fuel rail, injectors, ignition, put the serp belt on, change oil, and some other little things and hopefully it runs good.

Last night i got real close to getting the car done.

I need to put the serpentine system on (a idler pulley, crank puley, and the belt. Alternator is already on)

Cooling hose, fill it with coolant.

Oil change

throttle cable and vacuum lines

and i think connect the wiring harness. I think thats it.


This is the only picture i have. It was taken before where the motor is at right now.

I'll have to get my camera out and take an actual good picture to get a better idea on what the cover and gear look like. My cell phone takes shitty pics.

Im digging the build dude. Any plans for chassis upgrades?
If everything seems to be in control, you're not going fast enough.

Thanks guys!

Yeah i have some ideas for what i want to do to chassis, exterior, and interior stuff. I'm going to make a list once i get some bugs cleared out and some stuff under the hood taken care of.

Video of the Neon running. It doesn't have a huge vacuum leak, it's just cold and the intake is loud i guess haha.

Right now the alternator isn't charging the battery. I gotta figure that out. The alternator may be dead, i know it's hooked up right unless i looked over something which is possible.
Tomorrow i'll figure it out and do some more minor things.

so i forgot a plug in the alternator. The plug and wire was hiding on me. So now it runs and drives. I drove it about 40 miles just driving around today. I think the timing is off a tad, it bogs a little, lacks power, and just sluggish. So i need to re check that.

My poopy exhaust hanger broke on the hwy haha. I had to fix it with my intake clamp =/

Once it starts running good i'm going to work on exterior, interior, and some minor chassis stuff.
