uhhhh....Yeah.

A cheap set of coilovers isn't going to turn your car into a Rolex DP car.

Also, Charger had a good point, what are you going to do for a thermostat housing with the intake not made for your car?

K-sport and BC are both lower end coilovers. $1000+ may be a lot of money to most of us, but it's still a low price for a full coilover system, and the quality of these systems is also not the best you're going to find.

The DOHC manifold has the waterneck cast into it. You could get a spare DOHC manifold, have the waterneck cut off and the hole covered with sheet aluminum, or use parts from a PT/SRT/Cloud car. There's lots of info on the internet about doing this.

As far as everything being a constant fight, when you ask for advice, you may not always like what you hear. If you are dead set on doing something, then don't bother asking if it will work, or is a good idea.

I'm honestly trying to help.

Copying and pasting all your replies on here and the big .org doesn't help either.

Neither does crying about not having any money, but wanting to do $2,000 worth of work to a car. Everyone has been there and done that, nothing new.

And seriously, just buy neon parts. It's been done before and people can help you a lot easier. And it will be even cheaper cause you won't have to mod.

Well to end it, neon parts will be cheaper cause you don't have to mod, and saying no ones done it, to something about an engine is just weird. Just because you can doesn't always mean you should. But seriously if your going exhaust manifold off of an eclipse, an aftermarket 420a turbo one will work with custom parts, an aftermarket regular eclipse manifold won't because it wraps around the engine. Now the eclipse intake goes up instead of down like the neon because there in the back and have more room, it will fit on the neon but you would have to cut a hole in the hood for fitment. I'm not argueing with anybody I'm just saying its cheaper and you said you were on a budget.

i agree with you and appreciate the thought but buy cutting and shorting the runners i can make it straight like it needs to be. i only wanted suggestions im not saying im going to do it jus the thought seems good. with the feedback ive gotten has made me look at it from another point of view and i will probably change my mind. appreciate it guys

Don't swap a eclipse or avenger motor to a neon. Neons made 10 more HP then the eclipse 420a, probably because of the efficiency of the head set up such as the neon exhaust manifold flows straight out and straight back, not down and under.

you want different? Get All Motor Mike to make you custom manifolds. You want cheap but at the same time you want different. You can't do both

a eclipse 420a intake WILL NOT fit a neon 420a only the bottom mounting part. in theory it would bolt up but the top part would not clear the hood that alone is a reason to forget about it.
the eclipse and neon 420a are someone the same but the eclipse comes with more top end. they have no bottom end as we do.

if you wondering how i know i have both cars and a 4g63 talon. and ive tried lol.
