I'm liking the green. I need a new ride but cash is tight. I've been looking for a beater but what will you take for this car? I can deal with cash and a 2000 neon mtx with a blown motor and a good amount of of custom exterior work.

I know i'm late on this but here's my .02... aside from thickness Stainless steel is stainless steel so the main concern should be the exhaust note.

I was reading some of your posts about the stratus clutch O.D. will it work in the 2.0 with the cable clutch set up? ( IIRC you have a hydro tranny) I understand you have it for its ability to handle more power but that is not a concern for me. MY main issue is longevity. I don't want to be buying c...

so it's a year later and I have to replace my clutch already. it didn't even last 12000 miles. I'm getting a lot of clutch chatter now too. That caused the upper and lower strut tower braces (engine mounts) to tear. To say i'm disappointed with banhoff is an understatement. any money saved was spent...

Installing cruise control...

My car is about as base as neons come and doesn't have cruise control. I have an opportunity to get a complete cruise control set up from a craigslister cheap. What would be involved in installing it on my 00 mtx? what would I need to be sure the deal i'm looking at includes?

Yikes! at that price you may want to buy those generics and just put a hole on the drivers side front mat for that loop. or try a junk yard. The OEM ones are pretty crappy anyway. Mine have heel holes worn right through them.

a pressure washer on a low setting should be okay to use, say 1000 - 1400 PSI just don't linger with the wand. keep it moving. High PSI will definitely peel it off. try adding cheap (store brand?) dish detergent to the flow too.

That would definitely be an interesting and unique look. I don't know measurements but going by the fact that the 200 is a mid size car and the neon / srt4 is a small car I think you would be trimming away the bumper to make the grille fit rather than fiber glassing to fill gaps. If you think you ca...
