Too bad we're not building and racing cars in the 60's.

then your an idiot. it's true, rather you like it or not.


How can I argue with a sentence like that?

This thread just goes to show that Neons are praised by the ignorant as the greatest things ever just because that's all they can afford.

You can love you Neon and still realize that it's a 15 year old econobox that was thrown together and sold cheaply.

It really does look nice, but the "Neon" on it just looks kind of cheesy.

The nice VC makes the rest of the bay look especially crusty.

Nothing you're saying is really making much sense. Hundreds of people who didn't really know what they were doing have built SOHC Neons. There is nothing "different" about doing that again. They're more common than building a 2.0 DOHC or 2.4, and flat out won't make as much power. Like one guy made ...

It probably will seep some oil, so yeah changing it out is a good idea, but all it will do is make a bit of a mess, you won't lose enough oil to be worrisome. I stripped one VC bolt in my head and still haven't heli-coiled it.

Just tighten the rest of them down properly. It should be fine. Use an Easy-out type tool to get the rest of the bolt out and replace it.

Look at a stock SOHC piston and a stock DOHC piston. SOHC pistons are flat on top, while the DOHC are domed. The SOHC combustion chambers are smaller so a piston that takes up more space in the CC at TDC will give you a higher compression ratio. This will increase power output, but with an otherwise...

ugh.

Do you really need people you don't know to say things over the internet to make you feel better about what car you drive?

Tell them you like your car when they ask why you drive/modify it.
