You missed a golden opportunity with the plate frame to tie the wheel color in a little more. Just sayin'.

I put over 100,000 hard, rev limit bouncing, high speed driving miles of douchebaggery on my old '02 Neon. I even added stainless oversized valves, had the head ported, and everything. All with the fa ...

So I swapped the stock lifters back onto the head and it made no difference in sound. I'm pretty sure it's valve related at this point. Probably an out of spec valve guide.

I have about 3500 miles on the new setup. All of the lifters are new, so it would be extra frustrating if they're making the noise. I'm contemplating swapping the old lifters back in to see if the sou ...

Not a lot. A couple of them will click side to side a little, but all of the pressure on them is up and down. I can't imagine there's a lot of force on the sides of them. Any sort of shim would have t ...

After a few days on the road with these control arms, I can say that they are definitely more responsive than the stock ones. It's not a huge difference, but it's noticeable. Assuming they don't wiggl ...

Despite the rust danger, those triple rockers really helped the rigidity of the 2gn platform. These cars have excellently stiff platforms, which makes them very good on the racetrack. I wish Chrysler ...

There are different part numbers for the SRT arm versus the base Neon arm. I ordered the SRT part numbers intentionally, hoping they'd be based on the stronger arms.

I had the same issue with the w ...

I think the horizontal bushings in the Moog arms are a similar type of rubber as the OEM bushings, but the vertical bushing is changed quite a bit. The Problem Solver is actually more like a spherical ...

The drained AC system weighed almost exactly 25 pounds, but that was strictly under-hood parts. There's still a condenser and related parts under the dash.
