+1 on the muffler.

Love the 2nd picture!

Yeah I yanked the rear half of my exhaust off a few weeks ago. I wanted it louder; that muffler simply did its job too well. The mid pipe now dumps right in front of the rear wheel, which eliminated the hefty bend in the rear section that went over the rear crossmember. Its loud as hell, sounds awesome. its like an srt w/o the whine of the turbo. not to mention it looks much cleaner with no exhaust back there IMO. I might leave it like this.

and yes its very loud in the interior. when i yanked the seats it got loud. then when i stripped the trunk it was 10 times worse. my rear suspension is very noisy, and so is the frame from being braced so tight, cuz every part of my car rattles and moans. having the exhaust open directly under the trunk doesnt help either :)

oh and 03neonse, the hood has spacers like TNK said. and its not an ebay bar, thanks.

thanks everyone else for the comments!

yeah..he did that on purpose...and I doubt his strut bar is from ebay.

OBSXT + ebay = Not happening :lol:

BTW: car looks very clean, I like the stripped down look :)

by TNK
^i agree. teh stripped down look works really well with this car. all it nteeds now is some 15 inch Rotas.... and im with you OB, the assend looks MUCH cleaner with no exhaust hangin under it....

too bad the local smokies are crackin down on uberloud exhausts around here, i love the sound of mine, but im pushing my luck... dynomax wiht single tip shoudl be on in a couple weeks.....


i absolutely love everything about your car.... EXCEPT i cant get past that hood tilt.... and i think you need some lightweight simple styled 15s.



1 ? tho, did you paint your HVAC bezel? if so, why? the OB looks SOOOOOOO sexy.....

I swer everytime I see your neon I think about getting one; but, then I look outside and see my SS and I couldn't be happier. Love your neon for sure dude and your exhaust is awsome. Sounds great.

The car looks goooood, man! :thumbup: Looks much better without the exhaust!

And you know how I feel about the hood tilt. :P

That is a JDM Type-R shift boot from an Acura/Honda. Options Auto Salon has them. srt4evah has the same setup.

OB, if you ever want that rubber/retainer stripping to attach it perfectly let me know, I have some left on my shelf bro. (NO gap, NO glue, easily servicable, etc.)

Mike - enjoy it dude! haha

I pulled off my rear section too, and I love the no exhaust look. I was following my girl while she was driving my car and it looked so clean. However, I only pulled off the dodge part, not the NEON SXT

Man, the car looks awesome! I can only imagine how loud it is. Can ya still listen to the stereo at a reasonable level and hear it? :lol:

I want to gut my rear half too, but I kinda need the seats for the kids *shrugs*.

Get rid of that carpet, Son!

thanks for all the compliments everyone, i appreciate it.

tnk- hvac bezel was fake carbon look before, so i painted it black. it only has one layer of clearcoat on it, ive been meaning to fix it up but havent had time. I like the all black interior look; clean and simple.

oh and quick, i can still hear the stereo, but it has to be up fairly loud (at least 14-16) but at WOT, not happening. I actually opt to listen to the music of the motor instead most of the time. :)
