for the two extra cylinders. He said he wanted to do V6 swap. If you're looking for easy go with the 2.4

But you wouldn't gain a damn thing from those 2 extra cylinders except for .1L and a weak coolness factor cuz your V6 Neon will be slower than one with a stock 2.4L in it.

Go for it though if you want. It'll be 99% custom. Hope you can fabricate stuff, it's not that hard but you gotta be able to go and figure it out on your own.

I think i remember some one putting a 318 into one. You had to drive from the back seat because he had to move the firewall back to where the driver normal sits. Heh. that is more like strapping wheels to an engine the a engine swap ;)


And chip is anything done to the interior of your sport coupe with a 2.4, and would are your two bolt ons? If mid 14's can be achieved with a 2.4 swap I guess I need to get me one of them.

When I ran 14.7, it was a full interior. I gutted it and ran 14.4, including scraping all the shit off the floor. Took 2-3 days and a torch + scraper. If I were to do it again, I'd find a cheap non-running Neon, go back to the junkyard I got the current engine from for $90, buy one, and find a 3.94 trans. 14's for under a grand!

2 bolt-ons: Kirk header, tti street pulley (and I guess atx tb, so maybe 3 bolt-ons). No ps or a/c either. Blastin' tunes the whole way down the stretch (TI, Ride Wit Me, gets the blood flowing).

thats not a bad idea. It would be pretty easy to make a decent race car that way, and I don't image it would be very hard to get 13's then. You don't have a 3.0 on it? I imagine that would show at least a tenth ;)

All I got currently is a 90 degree bend on the tb pointing forward. No filter. Flame away lol. It's been fine for 3000 miles.

I got a spare head that's been decked .040" and I got a set of Crower valve springs that I'm gonna put in it, along with some Crane 18's when I find a set. That plus MS (already got the wires run for that, just need a wideband) and a custom intake manifold and I'll be knockin on 13's.
