I love my sohc but you'll get more power with the same money spent with a dohc.

^^^^ What they said!


SOHC is cool for the little extra low-end grunt they seem to have, but DOHC is really the way to go if you care at all about performance.

With similar mods, my '97 DOHC was a whole second faster in the 1/4mi than my '98 SOHC.

are you planning on keeping your current neon? if not assuming it is a sohc you may want to be able to transfer your parts over.. just a thought.

I know at some point in 1g production there was a shortage of SOHC engines and some cars got a "free DOHC upgrade." Could be an oddball car with factory DOHC and no tach.

unfortunately even w/ the magnum head your limited to pretty small cams which severely limits the potential of the sohc. aside from that little tidbit, i'd say sohc.

if you're going all NA, i would actually say the SOHC. save a little since u wouldn't have to worry about two cam gears and two cams. and plus at the end it would probably only be like a <15hp difference
