jeep owner.......enough said

Post by 1stSXTproject » Mon Jan 31, 2011 11:09 pm

yes i am a jeep guy.
i have a lifted jeep cherokee with 4.5" lift with 33" tires..... so im knew to the whole "car" thing.
Anyways my mom said she would get me a car to drive more then the jeep to save gas. i wanted an srt-4 but i couldnt find one for the right price so i ended up getting and 03 dodge neon sxt.
i dont really know where to start as far as mods. So if anyone could tell me a good mod to do first, that would be great.
i just baseclly want it to look nice and run good.

thanks,
Garrett

First off welcome aboard :)

Second, there are a bunch of threads around here with the same question you posed, so just search around.

But to help you out, here are the basics in terms of "speed": Under drive pully (UDP), 55-60mm TB, high flow cat, crank 14 or cam 400, magnum head, intake manifold and that's all I can remember right now.

Looks? Dropping the car a few inches, removing side moldings, tinting, getting some depo headlights, tail lights.

Hope this helps ya out ;)

Nice Cherokee!

I wanted one for a DD but they get mileage similar to my truck with a I6, so I said screw that. lol

CAI adds small gains by about 4-6 hp. That's for power

The looks of it. Tint windows new wheels black out the interior. Lighting mods inside and out
