I would use mopar wires or granetelli wires. I tried a set of bosch ones once and they went out within a month. Fuck that.

ok so its been awhile for this...................................... but i stopped with the shaving of the doors as it was just way to much work, and to ghetto to just fill it in with bondo................ good thing i did it on my spare door lol. but if you seen some of my other posts the car hasnt been running since around december ish. but im not going to go into all of that. its already in the engine section.

but basically after doing lots of looking i want to eventually make my neon a mean little car. this will involve a 2.4L swap with full ported and polished head from MP with Crower cams and the whole 9 yards. full bottom end build as well but this wont be for a while. my debate though is to venture into the boost world and have to deal with the tuning and everything or just go with a naturally aspirated build.

so......... just did the 3.0 cai on my sohc neon. wherever i read it from was right about it pulling way harder after 3,000 rpm's! my question is this. i remember hearing something about if i dont run that hose from the stock tube and just put a little filter it starts leaking oil somewhere? can anyone verify my concern with this?

my brother helped me with it and he suggested adding a little bung to the metal pipe so that i wouldnt have that problem which is totally doable.

also my hood prop gets shoved way forward about 3" from where its supposed to clip in on the drivers side when shut. and the hood hits the intake tube. any fix for this or just something i have to deal with?

thanks for the help guys and ill post some pics in a bit once i upload them before i go to bed.

here is how the custom 3.0 cai looks out of car

Image

removing the heavy side moldings in the doors which also makes it look more like an acr model

Image

stock airbox finally removed the rest of the way. plenty of room for a future turbo :cool:

Image

decided to polish my headlights cus they were pretty bad. but here is the unpolished version ( both look like this )

Image

and here is the polished version

Image

tinted tail lights ( bright on the bottom from the camera flash ) well worth the $14 a can for this stuff i must say

Image

tinted front turn signals/marker lights

Image

and losing light outside but tails installed
