I have many more plans for it. Only time and money will tell what gets completed. I don't want to post the future mod list because well that's a secret ;) . Although she will definitely stay N/A i can tell you that for sure!

are you getting ITb's skill? Dont keep it a secret! Nice list though, and I assume you did all the engine work yourself also. Keep up the good work.

I have Sportlines too, hows your ride feel? Mines quite shitty sometimes.

i can't take all the credit for the engine work, kevin the dude i bought it from did some of it also.

The sportline springs sux but i love the look of how low they are, and they are damn low hah. Having an inch of travel def. sux for backroad driving and even some city. Railroads kick my ass though.

ITBs are in thoughts, but not definte as of yet. I have some other things i want to get done and complete it then from there i will move on.

speakers are good specially for what i want to use them for. I don't want subs or anything to much weight for my taste and the speakers are great for highs and they still have a decent hit of bass to them. I prob wouldn't mind more of a hit with bass from my cabin speakers but like i said they suit me fine and any higher i think i'd get to much rattle from the stereo. N what do you mean replace all 6 we only hae 4 speakers stock in the neon?

there are six. 2-dash, 2-door, 2-rear deck. i bought a speaker/amp combo from walmart for like 50 bucks, new!! 10'' woofer and box. 300 max watts, but is perfect. i just put it behind my pass seat since i only ever have my boys in the back seat. just enough bass, and it probably only weights 5-7lbs since its soo cheap:)

no i'm pretty sure stock 1st gens came with 4 speakers rear and dorrs. Now there are spots for 2.5 tweeters up in the dash if you so desire to put them in, but the car did not come with 6 total.
