Re: Blueneo03: 05 sxt: Sold; final pics

...so as a cheaper backup I'm looking at the Mazda6 with the possibility of waiting to get the turbo 2.5 that they are releasing now. 227hp seems weak to me, although 310lb-ft should feel great in a daily driver. As long as they continue to offer it with a manual transmission, the Mazda6 will alway...

Re: 2002 R/T Build V2

Side note related to infant/toddler seats: my Neon is the only car in my whole family that has a center LATCH location. That's good stuff. I think only '02 or '03 up cars have the Latch system. My '01 does not have it. My car is actually the oldest of 4 cars I'm referring to above. They all have th...

Re: 2002 R/T Build V2

Watch out man, having the seats facing alternating directions like you have it takes up less room. 3 seats across all facing forward might give you a problem.

Re: 2018 Carlisle Official Thread

I don't think I've ever made it that late. Between driving most of the day Thursday, then walking around in the heat Friday and Saturday, I'm usually no good for much later than midnight. Especially the last few years where I've tried to hit the swap meet really early Friday morning. I've got two wo...

You also said that the forum doesn't always work either. I'm wondering if the CIA is finally on to you.

Depending on which browser you're using there are multiple plug-ins with the same intent. Try another one, clear cookies, and see what happens. Gotta keep Botophucket on their toes.

Re: Getting people back to the forum...

I am so glad that car didn't go to waste! I wish I didn't use the SRT oiling system. With the Stratus pump, the fact that I removed the balance shafts would have made up for adding the turbo. Running 5W-20, my cold idle is almost 80psi. I'm waiting for the day when I need to scoot out into traffic b...

Yeah, some people ended up falling into the "I'm going to drive my Neon until I don't drive my Neon anymore", which is the parent of the until it dies club.

Speaking of which, I need to put my "...until it dies" number back in my signature!

Once a year just doesn't seem to cut it anymore.
Nope, once a year hasn't cut it for a while. We do some small spring and fall meets in the far northeast, but that's plane-ride distance for you.

Re: Castrol Magnatec thoughts?

I have never used the Magnatec. Actually I have never heard of it. But I've used Castrol Edge (was called Syntec) for many many miles with great results.
I've had better luck with Castrol than Mobil1, so that's what I run in all of my cars now.

One year he drove all the way there with "the valvetrain making a noise". I think one of his students put the rockers in backwards or something like that. Oh well, it's only 1100 miles at 3500-4000rpm the whole way, haha. :lol:

Unfortunately simply eliminating the SKIM isn't possible since the PCM looks for it on start-up. Hopefully someone can chime in and confirm this, but I believe if you were experiencing a SKIM-related fault, the car would actually start momentarily, then shut itself off after a few seconds.
