The eclipse head is reversed from the neon, so it won't.

The intake is the back because there's more room, it would fit on the neon, but you wouldn't have a hood.

ok i understand what you all are sayin but the aftermarket one sit lower i need to know if the flange is the same. the head being backwards has nothing to do with it the exhaust has the same flange i need to know if the intake does as well

Same flanges on either head. You can run the 420a head on the neon, its been done before (mainly to make room for huge turbos).

Good luck with that. I wouldn't be surprised if you lost power with that manifold.

You're still buying another manifold, why not buy one that fits your car?

aftermarket support for the n/a eclipse is a little bigger than the neon from what i searched and the eclipse mani is designed a little better so if i do have to mod it will make things much easier ill proly hack it at the runners flip it and tig it. and call it a day so it slopes down. and i can get a stock eclipse mani alread side mounted tb for about 20 dollars and an aftermarket obx for 150 shipped.

well its jus a smarter decision on my part the whole point of my build is a quick boosted car for under 1500 including car, right now im sitting at 500 with 700 worth of parts in mind needed of course once i hit that limit illl have to exceed for coilovers and such but boosted car with good internals a few bolt ons and 17s plus the car itself for under 1500 im lovin that lol

Why are coilovers mandatory for a boosted car?

just watch the boost level or you will have to upgrade your muffler belts, that would cost you a little over $200 for upgraded ones or you could do the all out race ones for $500 but that would hurt your cash goals. what are you planning to do about a thermostat housing with the 420a intake?
