Nice numbers Tom and Jeff. Jeff I think sometimes big cams are overrated. Dont get me wrong you have to have big cams to make power I know, but after building some pretty big N/A 2.4's I've had luck both ways. It seems to me that the engine combo makes all the difference. As an example I made 256whp...

I think the power steering pump is actually the same as the PT, its just the reservior thats the difference. The money to use the SRT intake would be well worth the cash.

Factory Cd player ERR display

I have a 02 ACR with the factory CD player, and after about 40 to 45 min of playing a CD it will display ERR and not eject the CD in the correct fashion. You have to grap the CD and pull it out because it will try to take it right back in. Is this from overheating? Thats what I think it is from my e...

If you are going to stay N/A and expect to add more bolt ons or a magnum head, ect... then the magnum intake is a good addition with a RPM window switch to open the butterflies at the desired time.

The bolt pattern is totally different and you are better off switching to the "old" 2.0 head if you want to use the DOHC Neon intake. The Neon head does flow a little better with larger exhaust valves and a better exhaust port. A little porting and swapping in some "old" exhaust valves solves that p...

As far as a Intake Manifold I would use an SRT4 manifold. It has good size runners and no 90 degree turn like the 1st Gen Neon DOHC Intake. It also has a very well sized plenum for a stock 2.4 with bolt-ons. You might have to get the throttle body also not sure of the interchangability with the PT TB.
