Get an SRT4 clutch that has been turned to fit in the T350 if you plan to go boosted. Can't beat OEM reliability. Although your clutch cable may not like you after ^_^

I have tried scanning a 95 neon before and my scan tool could not retrieve the codes. It wasn't a cheap reader either. Updated with latest software etc.. Weird. That's odd. Ive never had a problem reading a '95 with an OBDII scan tool. My cheap Chinese scan tool has no problems, neither does the Sn...

I hate the steering wheel and the fact it is OBD1. Its actually OBDII compliant. Didnt have to be in 95 but Chrysler still did it anyways I have tried scanning a 95 neon before and my scan tool could not retrieve the codes. It wasn't a cheap reader either. Updated with latest software etc.. Weird.

Depending on mileage, condition of the body, repairs that have been done etc. it might be a good deal. 95s are kind of the bastard child of the neon world though. A lot of things will differ from a 96+ neon. If it was me, I would never buy a 95. I hate the steering wheel and the fact it is OBD1.

Taking the battery tray out will give you complete access to the driver side bolt. Worth the 10 minutes it takes to take it out. Take out the fans as well. If you have two that is. Starter is a super easy job on the neon.

Start with stock timing. Do a baseline dyno, go from there. You will need to experiment to find out what works well for your setup.

Try some lithium grease in the cylinder to try and free it up a bit. Maybe the teeth on your key are past their prime on your regular key and the spare? If it doesn't get better replace the lock cylinder. Since there is no factory immobilizer they are cheap!

But the SOHC valvetrain can't flow a lot of air. Boosting a stock D will net about 250WHP if you are lucky before things start to break badly.

Stock for stock, a neon and civic of equal year are pretty fairly matched. DOHC vs an Si is usually a decent race if you have two well trained drivers.

Just for reference sake, the d series Honda motor is very robust. Just not great at making the needed power to consider the civic in question a worthy opponent. ^_^

Pretty much. Maremont part number ES423 :D

The wiring could be an issue yes. I honestly don't understand why you would still be getting a misfire. Quite the pickle I must say.

Its possible. A rear o2 sensor shouldn't cause a misfire though. A plugged cat might at higher RPM. Take the down pipe off the manifold and have a look down into the cat. See if it looks plugged or not. You will need new spring bolts after though. If it is only missing at higher rpm maybe the crank ...

Try a different PCM maybe. The drivers for the coil might be toast.

I would start with new plugs. For the 10 bucks they are, you can't really go wrong. Do you have a spare coil you could try to see if it makes a difference?

If the spare knuckles have good bearings just swap them out. Knuckles are easy to remove. For bearings you need to press them in. More work.
