Looked up throught the pan to verify there were JE slugs and H beam rods in her...
Only a matter of time now. Yanked the old motor out today, put the drive plate, clutch and tranny on the new one. Tossed the alt starter and crank pulley on too before I dropped it back in.
Wifes loved this 3-ton hoist taking up space in the washer/dryer room
Finally got to use it today.
This is what happens when you dont evenly distribute weight......
Old block and trannt comming out....
Hole for the new powerplant....
Couple hours and longnecks later and the new ones is dropped in.
Next time ill be doing all the little small work hooking the engine back up and then Ill get to break her in

awesome setup , new on here jus got done reading each page, how much psi can a blower actually make? and how much hp u think youre lookin at, def out of the ordinary never seen it done on a neon, dnt know much about these fill me in bro

As for that green 4dr Iam done with it. Shes running, wich is why my car isnt done yet.
The 4dr's belt went from the idler crapping out, it was in peices when I removed his belt cover. I put a whole diff complete head on it since he bent all but 5 valves.....
A Blowers boost output depends on the size of the crank pulley and the blowers pulley. At a lil over 6k rpms this was giving me 13psi<-B4 the botom end let go and thats why I just dropped another motor in.....
