my MP order came in :)

- JE pistons (9.2:1 .020 overbore)
- Eagle Rods
- ARP rod bolts / headstuds
- Walbro 255 fuel pump
- waterpump
- timing belt / tensioner

Image

next on my list is a shortblock + machine work, and a clutch.. haven't decided which one to go with yet. Thinking of just going with a machined srt clutch, don't have anymore money :(

even though I can't do anything with it all yet, it still feels good to have it and crossed off the list.

I may take a pic and post it.. Johny got a new fancy camera so maybe he can take some pics when I see him Thursday night for a meet :D

I'll keep an eye out, I'm pretty sure they're really easy to find here :rofl:

Dom (forget his username here) usually gets them and posts them here forsale.

EDIT: His username is DODGETHIS, and here's a link to his fs page: viewtopic.php?t=62459. Looks like he has two for sale, $65 shipped each.. I should get some kind of commission for this :shock:

Leather sucks. too hot in summer, ice in winter.

That sounds really clean actually. I keep wanting to go all black, but then I think it will be too boring

picked up an SRT dash top + gauge pod + gauge, put in the dash and gauge but haven't hooked it up yet. The vinyl (or similar?) stuff is peeling on the dash top so I'm going to peel it all off and wrap it. Maybe flat black? I just want it clean and fresh.

I have the cash for my block+machine work, just waiting for it now. I'm also still really undecided on what clutch to go with.. no rush yet.

back in school as of september so cash flow will be tight, trying to get ANOTHER job now to have some cash.

I will update with dash pictures when I do something about it :rofl:

It looks the same. Unless I told you, you'd think it was stock

I love the Volks! I have a buddy that has a few different colored sets and I've been hoping he'd sell me a set for years. The downside is your wheels are now worth more than your entire car, and easily stolen...

I haven't been in the Neon 'scene' too long, but from years as a Honda kid, seeing friends cars on cinder blocks the next morning and what not, keep that thing locked up at night!

I love the ride height as well. Nice job, Kevin, that is a slick car.

Also, what did you use for that lip? That might be the best Home Depot lip I've ever seen.

They're not real Volks :rofl: I can't afford that shit, you can tell by the multi bolt pattern. Still nice looking rims, and pretty light compared to my SRT rims :p

All my honda buddies have the same problem, mine hasn't been broken into or anything yet *knocks on wood* No one cares about neons, it's nice.

I should've written it better, the HD lip isn't actually on in that picture. It was in the process of getting put on. I'll post a picture afterwards. The picture in the above post is just my regular RT bumper.

The HD turned out decent, I'm happy with it for it's cheap purpose. The RT front bumper is SOOOOOOO high off the ground :(
