I got the shell from daver. total with shipping it cost me 1500. car had a decent amount of rust so i blasted the bay and whole underneath. i plan to make 450hp for this summer and hopefully run low 12s with the slicks and teins coilover, then over that time i will start building a block and head to have if the motor goes

Looks great man I love 2001 neon r/t's ... I like the look of the front bumpers when turbo'd... :lol: will you have the body work done as well in the summer.... with 450hp you'll be in the mid 11sec range for sure. What are you running for plugs / motor oil

from what i can see the ports on the new one are higher, probably to reduce the amount of oil being sucked up.
however why put them towards the front?

Yeah I'm curious what the story is on the first (red) valve cover... Did you modify an SRT one or is that off of another vehicle?

I wish I had seen this a couple months ago... I just finished a two-color powdercoat on my stock SRT-4 valve cover :/


So you have this big azz turbo on there.... and a big FMIC. And an intake mani, and probably a larger TB. Boomba rail. What else? What size injectors, which fuel pump? Do you have a spec list for us?
