Oops my bad. Thought I read it was 256. My mistake sir. They are somewhat comparable though, aren't they? PTE is a lil bigger though, right? Either way you both have some bad ass skittles

If it makes you feel better Kevin I rear ended someone today lol. Not driving stupid traffic just stopped and I didn't notice in time. I was able to manage only breaking my headlight and cracking my bumper....

Alright i finally have some time to update where im at.

have had to do little things to clean the build up. engine is running strong and tune is really good. Erick is the man! he helps as much as possible and is a great tuner.

As far as engine performance i havent done anything.

Buuuuuuuut for suspension!

Kosei k1 ts with bridgestone potenzas s pole. 225/45 r17s, BC coilovers with front comber plates, and vibrant strut tower braces. Handles 1000000000x better. cant believe how good it is now.

Ive also had this for awhile and finally plasti dipped it and put it on

Image

plan to do something for brakes soon. thinkin srt brake swap or rt rear disc swap. idk what big brake setups are available for rt... if any at all. Then MORE BOOOOOOST!

Upgrade fuel then performance head and cam. Almost done with automotive and hopefully will get a good raise at work.

let me know how you guys like the build. i love the motivation!

Upgrade to rear discs and get slightly more aggressive brake pads. Bigger brakes means more weight.

lookin great ethan! i upgraded to pt brakes(same as srt) and love them the weight is barely noticed but stops amazing i would get rear disk from any neon(from 1gn to srt all rear disk are the same with the exception of threads for brake lines the caliper and lines have a different thread sae vs metric) and new knuckles for bigger brakes with hawk hps pads all around would be a stellar combo and i would reccomend a srt master cylinder for the correct proportioning which i need to get but if you get srt knuckles i will trade you if you want to keep your turning radius i have the pt knuckles with the awesome turning radius

First and foremost.... IM NOW A CHRYSLER TECH!
now ill really be mopar or no car. We will be moving a few hours north into my wife's parents home. They have an apartment for us. O and a machine shop with mig and tig welders and CNC machines :)

WOW! apparently I nvr updated that I replaced the clutch ha. Drives a lot better then with the old spec. Still have trans noise with new throw out bearing. Pretty much waiting for it to grenade on me.

We got my wife a 98 vw cabrio so now I have three cars. Neons been off insurance and I've been tweaking with it. Working on ms idle and cranking. Used start start up and die in the morning and crank forever wen hot. Got those dialed in a lot better.

Also smoked my tails :D

Lookin to buy hotchkiss sway bars next and do a retrofit. :rofl: :rofl:
