Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Turbos have LONG had their longevity troubles ...all the way back to WW11 aircraft engines! Heat "coking" on shutdown of the oil feed/return on a HOT turbo is the most common cause. That"s why a number of years ago they came out with add on electric oil pumps to keep oil flowing on shut down and al...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

They do. I haven't heard of anything crazy with the 2gn. Its not my daily driver so I don't care about vibrations really. Plus its a Neon and doesn't ride the best anyway. That is why I have an automatic Acura TL-S that rides very smooth. And if that chain fails, its a huge mess, can be very catastr...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Well decided to just get it rebuilt. Having this guy rebuild it. He does good work from what I hear. Once he receives it and takes it all apart. I can decide if I want to upgrade the wheel too. $250 for rebuild. https://www.facebook.com/ArtGennariTurbo/ 2-4 week turnaround time which will seem like ...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Thanks I found a used journal bearing turbo just like mine. AGP 50t .63 AR for $450 OBO. He said it only has 5k miles on it...It doesn't look like it has 5k miles on it! LOL But that would be a cheap easy option. Just swap it in and cross my fingers. I even tossed the idea of going back to stock for...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

That's a lot of play for sure. What's the plan for the turbo? Rebuild or replace with something bigger? Definetely not rebuild. Its an old style journal bearing turbo. Unless I can find one used. But I doubt it. Then you find one used and they say its in great shape but turns out it is not. So goin...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Yeah...glad mine is an 05 and never seen bad weather haha. A turbo car from 1985...yeah, no thanks. I think the turbo only has like 13k miles but it was put on like in 2008 or 2009. Oh for sure. I am just trying to figure out where to start at first. Taking the hotside off the turbo off will be a PI...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Thanks. Its normal to have some play. AGP got back at me. They said "That might be a little much. If the wheels are hitting the housing it is time for a rebuild." I am thinking of pulling my cam cover today and see if anything is broken. But there is no rattling noise or anything in my valve train. ...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

https://i.imgur.com/riGS6zT.mp4 Well that sucks. It smoked like this last year. I put a new PCV valve in and switched out checkvalves and that seemed to fix it. I also did a compression check. All were almost dead even. Removed exhaust side of turbo and it was dry. Not caked in oil or anything. I c...

Re: Random posting

Yes it is sad. They couple that were selling it bought it in February of this year. To me it was the previous owner that neglected it. Looks like it just sat in the hot Oklahoma sun every day and was never washed and the paint was never protected. Hope the next starter fixes it your SRT. Sucks you g...

Re: Random posting

The lien alone could make or break the deal. If he owes much more than you're willing to pay, and even if you reach an agreed price, the title will not be released until he can pay the balance of the loan. Then there is the wait for the bank to process the title, which might be a day or it could be...

Re: Random posting

My SRT-4 had the problem of not going into First or Reverse … needed a complete clutch. Hail damage can be very expensive to repair … never fixed mine. My feeling is that the car should be a "part-out", and not worth $6k :( Clutch was replaced at a dealership at like 64k miles or so according to th...

Viper always dies and comes back.

That does look really good. I tried VHT niteshades on my 2001 Neon SE a LONG time ago and failed miserably.

Wait, can't you contact the seller of the black ones and get a new set for free under warranty? Not sure if you bought them used or what. (the one that broke)
