you could try stuffing a magnaflow turbo muffler under it, there are several sizes. I don't have the srt rear section but I did have a magnaflow muffler meant for a Camaro with dual outlets put in the stock location. Love the sound of magnaflow! not too loud but gets louder when ya get on it. GL wit...

Thanks guys for the input. He told me the soft line would need to be replaced as well. I have no experience with brake issues and wanted input from those that do. Thanks again Merry Christmas to all at 2gn.

2000 ES front bake calipers

The guy at the brake shop is telling me I need a right front caliper. I see no evidence of it but he is the "Professional". The brakes pads are wearing even, the rotor is not warped and shows no evidence of bluing. The steering does not pull under braking and there is no evidence of leakage. Is ther...

I agree with Bill. my 2000 ES MTX did this when the torque struts went. I thought the trans was toast, but I lucked out. The struts were much less expensive. yippeee

evap leak

I hate to be cliché but try replacing the gas cap. If that doesn't fix it there is a how to on here to further address that problem. Try the search button. Most times it seems the O ping on the cap shrinks or is slightly torn and leaks, also inspect the fuel filler neck for rust and pin holes.

new job

The 2gn Neons do sit high in the back. Doubtful it has anything to do with the alignment. But if you haven't done it yet, add a 4 wheel alignment to your to do list. While they are in there have them check the steering rack for play, and the front lower control arm bushings along with the ball joints.

sounds like a plan to me. I missed the rebuild when I read your post before. 20k on the build speaks for the quality of the build as long as there are no unusual noises or smoke. Good Luck with the car when you snag it.

a/c line

The line mechanically should be no big deal to change, just be sure to install new O rings when it's changed out. This is not really a job for the average home mechanic. Once the system has been open to the air, a vacuum needs to be pulled on the system before new R-134a is put in. The air in the sy...
