While there are some boring reasons stated for the Neon's name, the coolest one is that one of the first prototypes used Neon light for the headlamps. While a very cool effect, neon makes a very poor high output light. So the design failed, but the name stuck.

Many people felt like you did however, so thanks to the F&F movement of the late 90s and early 2000s, the Neon could be found equipped with more Neon than it knows what to do with.

Sorry to say that you can't blame the gods on this one. I think mortal hands had something to do with your cracked intake.

The best way to re-kindle your love for the Neon is to come to a meet like Carlisle. The cult-like passion car owners have for their Neons is very persuasive. Or it could just be the kool-aid.

I'm glad you like the stickers :D

I had to run to Facebook for that one. Holy Mother of Fuck.

I'm just glad Manny is OK. But I can't help but think back to all the warnings he had about the wiring :(

Because she doesn't want to succumb to the thought a neon is that much more awesome then her so she denies and will continue to deny the thought your wood is cause by your neon :thumbup:

Rather than try and convince your wife that you were dreaming of your Neon, try including her in your autoerotic fantasies.

"Oh honey, it was great. You were naked, drapped across my clean, sexy Neon."

Go from there. Most Neons are freaks so it won't get jealous.

There is nothing stupid about that, you just aren't used to it. When it comes to maintaining, modding, or showing off your Neon, you will from time to time need an energy drink. Or two. Or more.

I'm addicted to Monster because of my Neon.

While at work on the the wiki I found that the jeep liberty comes with a 2.4l powertech engine that has a little more heft that an average 2.4. Is this swappable into my 03 sxt? And if so is there any upgrading to it like with a pt (swapping internals and such)?

The 2.4 found in the Jeep is the same engine found in the PT, Minivans, and Cloud cars. From what I've see and read, the engine is not any beefier. As long as the donor 2.4 is NGC, you should be able to upgrade it with SRT internals.

The 2.4 was available in the Jeeps starting in the 2002 MY, so there is a possibility that it may be non-NGC in that year only. Just something to keep in mind.

Ok thanks Dante. I just said beefier because it says the jeep had 160 torque in the powertech version. Seems like 30 lb.ft more than the regular 2.4. Ill be jeep hunting now.

According to Allpar the 2.4 N/A engine has 140/150hp and 160ft-lbs of torque.
