What engine? We don't have "EX" models in the states, so that doesn't really tell us much.

Over boring and raising compression alone wont net you much power gain. A slight increase in torque would be about all you would get. Using a crane 14 or larger cam would make a big difference.

Neon's don't have a MAF sensor.

Be sure you have power to the number one injector. If the ground wire for injector number one is ok from the injector clip to the PCM, there isnt much left to diagnose. What are you using to test for injector signaling from the PCM? Noid lights? You may also want to try returning the injector wiring...

actually it would include the sohc tlev california pistons They have 40 cc dishes and should make for 8.8:1 compression under a dohc. but they are hard for anyone not in california to get. Good point, but like you said they are hard to find and would be costly to buy new (im thinking super low-budg...

There could be any number of things causing the problem. Without more details, its hard to say. It could be as simple as a shift linkage problem.

The ultimate cheap 2.0L turbo engine build is SOHC pistons, DOHC head, late-style 2.0 rods, and ARP rod bolts. NGC blocks are a bit stouter, but you cant use one in a 1gn without switching to NGC electronics or Megasquirt. You can make close to 300whp on a well prepared stock block with the right tu...

Don't waste your time or money modifying the crank. Neon cranks are very stout and can handle over 500hp as is. Just clean the casting lines and polish the journals. A DOHC 2.0L with forged pistons and rods, if built correctly, will be capable of handling way more than 15psi with your turbo. Forget ...

You could put a fuse on the power wire, but it would have to be a very high amp, slow-blow fuse. It would also be a pain in the ass to replace. A circuit breaker would be better. If you shield the wire and secure it correctly, you wont need a fuse. Most cars with fender or rear mounted batteries don...

That's a very nice product you have. Good thinking! ya i just want a slammed look. but what struts would be better? Koni's are always the best choice, but they come with a high price tag. You can get by on GR2's if you buy fattire's mounts. For the price of the springs, Koni's, and the mounts, you c...

In theory, a centrifugal supercharger would be easier to install. The hardest part would be fabricating a mount and designing a good pulley & belt setup.

It depends on what your looking for. If you just want that slammed look, it will work. If you want the car to handle well, don't drop it that much. Neon's have very poor suspension travel and lowering it makes it that much worse. You will be hitting the bump stops a lot, which is not conducive to go...
