Selling a car you have worked on and loved is hard...especially when you know every last inch of it. You don't need a CEL because any smell, sound, or judder that isn't quite right has you pulling over to investigate. It is almost like you are selling a piece of yourself. Best you can hope for is it...

Neon is going on the back burner for a bit... My latest upgrade is a "big brother" in the form of a 05 wrx (intake, dp, 3" exhaust, accessport). Already ordered sts for it and looking at uppipes. After that it will be saving for coilovers for the wrx.

This! There are a bunch of SRT4's and Neons running around Omaha and I have no idea who they are. Took the wife to a friend's house the other day just north of 36 and cornhusker and there was a black neon with a CF hood.

We need to see if we have enough to start a Neons of Omaha club or some stuff.

It really helps to have someone who has done it before! You have to raise the engine quite high and then drop it til you think you are about to break something and then raise it again. You need at least one other person helping you to get the motor lined back up and bolted in.

Well, "cheaply" would be milling the head, but then you need to get an inexpensive adjustable cam gear(s) to bring the cam timing back in line. Or some decent used pistons, but then there are the related costs of doing that properly. Really no cheap method, unless you take your chances with backyar...

I hacked the shit out of my seat. Took an angle grinder and took off the back 2 pedestals and cut the front 2 down to about 1/4-1/2" and then went to put the sliders back on.

Less selection with 225. Although hankook rs3 are avalil in 225. I moved the rear to firm and can feel the inside rear tire trying to pick up. Will probably move it back to the softer setting in the future (too busy to mess with it right now)

Sputtering and stuttering 03 sxt

So my 03 SXT started to buck at low rpm (cruising thru parking lots and residential areas). When cruising on the highway I could feel a little stutter but only in a narrow rpm window. I figured it was the heat (less dense air) was giving the comp issues. I backed my cam timing off from +4 to +3 and ...
