Re: Happy Post on 2GN Day!!!

Do you still have your Neon? Yes. How long have you had your Neon? 12 1/2 years. How many 2GN Carlisle meets have you been to? ALL 12! Are you going this year? Yes. Do you still mod your Neon or has it turned into just a method of transportation... or just fix when it breaks? A little bit of all 3 m...

Re: Getting people back to the forum...

I am so glad that car didn't go to waste! I wish I didn't use the SRT oiling system. With the Stratus pump, the fact that I removed the balance shafts would have made up for adding the turbo. Running 5W-20, my cold idle is almost 80psi. I'm waiting for the day when I need to scoot out into traffic b...

...and My '00 shell (Chris A's neon - Dark Jewel) :shock: You have that car? I always loved that thing. There was a kindred spirit-ness between that car and my Daytona because we went the same 2.4 route: build a Stratus engine ground-up instead of starting with an SRT longblock. Back when we did ou...

Re: Blueneo03: 05 sxt: Sold; final pics

Yeah, some people ended up falling into the "I'm going to drive my Neon until I don't drive my Neon anymore", which is the parent of the until it dies club.

Speaking of which, I need to put my "...until it dies" number back in my signature!

Is it July yet??? I wish we had a big 2gn get together twice a year, spread apart.

Once a year just doesn't seem to cut it anymore.
Nope, once a year hasn't cut it for a while. We do some small spring and fall meets in the far northeast, but that's plane-ride distance for you.

Re: Castrol Magnatec thoughts?

I have never used the Magnatec. Actually I have never heard of it. But I've used Castrol Edge (was called Syntec) for many many miles with great results.
I've had better luck with Castrol than Mobil1, so that's what I run in all of my cars now.

One year he drove all the way there with "the valvetrain making a noise". I think one of his students put the rockers in backwards or something like that. Oh well, it's only 1100 miles at 3500-4000rpm the whole way, haha. :lol:

I don't know. I toyed with the idea of driving over, but then we took a family trip down to Disneyland this summer and it made me rethink that idea. The drive took about 24 hours and it's less than half the distance to Carlisle. It was rough. Plus, I no longer have AC in the Neon, so it would be ex...

Re: Keys and SKIM

Unfortunately simply eliminating the SKIM isn't possible since the PCM looks for it on start-up. Hopefully someone can chime in and confirm this, but I believe if you were experiencing a SKIM-related fault, the car would actually start momentarily, then shut itself off after a few seconds. It sounds...

That's one way to ruin tires. Last year, I transported over 1400lbs of scrap metal in my Neon while it was wearing 11-year-old Blizzaks. Gotta move that rubber around!

Re: 2002 R/T Build V2

I've done a lot of work with shifters, especially with Neons, and I can't stand the 72%. Nothing against Chuck's shifters - I think he does a fantastic job. I've actually been running a modified prototype of his in my Daytona for years. I just think the 72 and the 80 are too much.
