I got the piping from Treadstone. It's thick walled aluminum.. I had one of my buds tig it all up for me. I'm gonna need a lot more piping for next winter... That's all I'm gonna say ;)

For more room, The plan is while the car is being caged, to cut out a section of the firewall and recess it behind the dash more so the " piping" Cough cough... Can fit behind the s256...

not to rag on ya, but do you really feel that your car will ever be to the point where a full on 10 point cage is really needed? the amount of power needed to overcome the extra weight along with move the car in a manner that requires that sort of cage is barely feasible with a neon. don't get me wrong i love neons, but it's not a top fuel dragster that can do 20 rolls after hitting the barrier

well since you posted this, i cant hold it in any longer. The small turbo is going to be the s256net and the larger turbo is going to be a bws362... :shock:

anotherwords, its going to be a compound turbo setup..

that company makes a 10 point. and compound will be nasty. a bitch to tune, but nasty as hell. good luck man

ah ok, didnt realize they only made a 10 pt, that explains why he isnt going with the 8pt.

*In Other Words* That is gonna torque-steer the axles off and blow hoses loooooong before the cage will be necessary.

Hope your not serious.
All the piping is Tigged. There's only 4 couplers on the whole car.

So what your saying is I shouldn't run a cage? I should just go to the track and watch since they won't let me run without one? Yeah, sounds sweet.


Edit: Thats like saying your neon cant keep rear quarters on it, so why change the oil in the motor?
