Had a smile on my face all the way home and now my '05 SXT feels balls slow. Still love the gas mileage I get but miss that SRT power I felt.

Don't know if the brackets would fit but we've got bushings at AutoZone. Most are sized in inch not mm so you'll have to convert to get the right size. End links are going for $20 bucks a pair and center mounts are $25 a pair IIRC.

If you were to retard the #12 a couple degs it'd move the power band down a bit. 6300rpm is kind of high for me since I shift at 6500 I'd never be back into my toqure curve after I shift. Ideally you want to be at max toqure right after the shift and since most MTX's that I see generally drop you 10...

Also, if you get something like a Crane 12 and get an adjustable cam gear you can dial in the cam to make power in a lower rpm range and have more toqure where you want it to be.

You guys do know that a Paxton is about the same size as a turbo, right? I'm not talking about something like a Dryer 4-71 or 6-71. Do a google on Paxton Superchargers and you'll see just how small they are.

A Paxton wouldn't make any more heat then a turbo, in fact if you look at the design of the Paxton it's pretty much a belt driven turbo. I think it could be done if someone would just fab it up.

I wonder how Chevy got away with putting a supercharger on their Cobalt?

Much simpler then a turbo having to run a new exhaust mani, pipe from th...

Um, after recently getting to drive a pretty much stock SRT-4 and after driving my lightly modded SXT with MTX I can say as a positive FACT that NO stock Neon would ever be as fast as an SRT-4. My SXT gets up and moves along nicely for what it is but the SRT was Scary Fast IMHO.

Using side marker lights to run driving lights.

First question, is there any law, at least in Tennessee, that says you must have front side marker lights on your car? Second, do the front side marker lights also act as a turn signal light? If the answer is "No" to both questions then I think I could use the wiring from the front side marker light...
