I don't think I've ever had a car up to 6500 rpm before this one. Most of what I've owned were V8's that were for the most part had stock internals so hitting 5K rpm was a lot for em', LOL. I did have my Honda Magna up to 10.5K rpm though, that was a little 750cc screamer.

ECM reset is "magic".

I finally got to kick it in the butt for the first time since I reset my ECM on Saturday and WOW, what a difference. I guess the fuel maps and stuff have been reset by the NGC system because for the first time since I've got the car I was able to hit 6500 rpm and I felt that little engine pulling al...

cause all imports suck. And mopar is god. No, because we're sending way too much of our money over seas and not supporting our own American people and it's nice to be able to buy a car made in the U.S. for a change.

With the R/T you have the better valve springs so you could go Comp 400 or even Crane #14 if you want too.

KYB G2R Struts(I know, ya'll like the Tokico Blues better but KYB are cheaper) with SRT springs will only drop you about .5", then make sure you've got good ES bushing on your sway bars and have TWO sway bars, one front(22mm or so) and one rear (19mm or so)and that'd be a good start.

So why do you love your Neon?

I know more then a few people don't like their Neons/SRT-4s but for those of us that do, why? I'll start: I love my Neon because it's the first car I've had in a while(had trucks for about the last 12 years) and it's pretty easy to work on for a smog motor. It's a fairly peppy little car with the fe...

No problem... Adding bolt ons without resetting the pcm does not gain as much increase since the pcm is already calibrated for the previous airflow requirements. Adding a CAI increases air flow and density and the pcm needs to relearn the new fuel requirements. Thats where resetting the pcm comes i...

Yes, Tokico struts have the sway bar brackets on them, in case you were still wondering! Yep, I noticed that in the pic on MPx web site. Since I've got almost 40k miles on the car it's probably close to time for new struts anyway. I measured my stock SXT front bar and it's 22mm so I'm good to go th...

Didn't think about that. The TPS does need to be fully open to sense WOT. I wonder if I could set the butterfly to 90 then re-clock the TPS so it'd be at WOT with the butterfly at 90. I guess I need to get a used TB from a J-Yard to play around with.

I wonder if a reset would help NGC cars with the 60mm TB install? I've read that some people have no CEL after the install and others do, a reset might get the new TB and MAP sensor readjusted to that it'd adapt to the 60mm TB without throwing a CEL. Just a idea, not sure if it'd work or not.

So does it get smaller on the bellows tube side or what? I thought it was 52mm straight thru with no venturia and that's why we get that 2K studder.

52mm TB, More then enough.

Using the formula ((Max RPM/2)*Displacement)/1728 to calculate TB cfm and adding 10% for 6200 rpm I get just over 240 cfm needed for my engine. Now, looking at the table from Allpar you can see that I've got more then enough TB for my app. 49mm TB flows 252 cfm 52mm TB flows 283 cfm 55mm TB flows 31...

No, I'm talking about finial drive ratio, what you'd call "rear end" gears in a RWD car. The R/T's and ACR's have 3.94:1 finial drive ratio where as other Neons have 3.55:1 ratio. Gears multiply torque, more torque=better acceleration off of the line. The Crane #12 and the Comp 200 are about like th...

Gears can do more for your off the line performance then just about anything else. Stick a set of 3.94's in place of the stock 3.55's and you'll feel a lot of difference. Also, getting rid of rotatating weight by adding the UDP and a lighten flywheel will help off the line as well.

Check my garage pics to see how I did mine. Took out the entire air box and put a K&N drop in on the TB after I rigged up a mounting brace for the TB. You're right about the 2.0L really getting up on the stock cam above 4K rpm. It's almost like two different engines when you run under 4K or over 4K ...
