So there's been a lot of changes since I've last been on. I haven't even been on the Facebook page since I deleted my FB several months ago (too much drama, and I hate the social media life). Anyway, we are going to be adding two additions to our family and so we need something bigger (yep, my wife is pregnant with twins :D she'll be due around April/May). I don't necessarily need to sell this, but I do have it posted on Craigslist for $4k. I know, "that's a bit high", but if someone wants to talk me down I can negotiate. We're looking at getting a mid-2000's Pilot, 3 row seating, DVD player (preferably), and 4WD. I want to offer it to a Neon enthusiast for around $2500. Let me know if you have any questions other than the general information I'll post here.

Motor
2.0L (non High-Output)
Underdrive Pulley with appropriate belts
Spectre Short Ram Air Intake
R/T Manifold with MSD RPM switch (working butterflies)
Powdercoated R/T Valve Cover with <2 year old VC Gasket
Granatelli Spark Plug Wires
Champion Copper Plugs (RC9YC)
PT Cruiser Alternator

Transmission
5-Speed
Original clutch
Fluid changed with Mobil1 HM 10w-40 every year
Shifts perfect, never had an issue
Short throw shifter (forget the brand and reduction)
MPx Shift Ball
Solid cradle bushings along with all 4 booger bushings

Exterior
Front: '02 Bumper with Civic "Type-R" eBay lip
LSP Retrofit '00-'02 Headlights, TRS 4300K HID's and relay harness, VVME ballasts
Chrysler Grille
Sides: Color-matched, folding side mirrors
R/T side skirts
Rear: Chrysler 200 trunk badge, 1gn "NEON" badge
MPx LED taillights
LSP third brake LED light
Mopar Rear lip, rolled (because I have no muffler)
Wheels: Candy Teal powdercoated Silverstones. Tires will need replaced soon, but they lasted me almost 3 years (Kumho Ecsta 4X)
Other: Shorty antenna, 33% window tint (great condition for being 8 year old tint)

Interior
SRT-4 SRS Airbag front seats, SXT cloth rear seats
Headliner with all 4 handles
Vanity visors
SRT-4 pod with Autometer Voltmeter gauge
Glovebox light
Locking glovebox
SRT-4 Pedals (some of the rubber things are worn, but still in good condition overall)
SXT Gauge cluster, no LED lights or anything
Alpine iPhone/USB/Radio audio receiver
Compass Rear view mirror (from a Buick Park Avenue)
OEM floor mats

As far as mileage goes, I'm honestly not sure the exact mileage. The cluster reads about 141100 now, but I've had it changed out several times. I, unfortunately, never wrote down the original mileage before I changed the cluster the first time. When I did the valve cover gasket last year, I can tell you that the topside of the motor looks completely immaculate. I run Mobil1 5w-30 and change it out every 3-4k miles. Since I fixed the CPS and oil pan leak, I only burn about half a quart every oil change. Suspension will need some care, but nothing $400 Raceland coilovers can't fix. It'll also need new lower control arm bushings soon.

If I've forgotten anything, please let me know. Like I said, I'm not in a rush to sell, but if I can get it sold I will. Thanks for looking!

Drove my neon until it was killed in a flood.

congrats on the news! I just noticed do you have working cruise control on that too? Not too many 5spds have that.

Yea, all the "creature comforts" work. Never had an issue with heat or a/c, and the cruise works perfectly.

Thanks guys! It's going to be a very exciting summer lol! I'm looking forward to it.

Cool, just shoot me a PM if you are. I'll be fixing a P0344 code in the next couple weeks, whenever I get around to ordering the parts from ModernPerformance.

I don't. Did the conversion several years ago, the mopar lip went to a member here and the front bumper got trashed cause I was active duty at the time and couldn't keep a bumper in my barracks room lol.
