That is the most awesome part.

"I'm gonna complain, because you beat me by not cheating" :cussing:



Better be careful, or you'll get neons banned. "If we can't beat it we'll ban it!" It basically seems to only apply to Mopars. :twisted:

I intend to run next year too. This car is supposed to be sold by the weekend, and I picked up next years weapon last week

I fully expect to have the motor torn down, and rules against neons by years end :D

Glad to see you come out on top after all that has happened. Wait till next year . Hoping to hurt more egos and have more whiners only to pass each week once again. Sure the rules will get changed and neons be handicapped or something. Lol

Now you have to source an '01 325AA cam for it. Should be worth a few HP over the regular '02 to '04 Magnum cam. (325AB)

Be sure to keep the target magnet from the 400 cam, as it is different between '02 -older and '03 - newer.

Got a little more welding done on a couple more bars, and fitted the plates to keep the Honda parts out of my lap and arm.

It's not haha, my eyes are above the head rests, that's why they are cut down in that notch. It's kinda hard to explain lol


Got the front bumper hung and sort of fixed, and the left side doors gutted to fit the door bars

Ok how much do you want for the bumper? And where exactly are you, so I know if it's worth the gas?

Ok not too far, bout an hour. Do you need my bumper in return? Is yours in good condition? I'll base an offer on that.

Also I have an srt rear exhaust section, if you still have the r/t rear section, I'd swap ya if you're interested.

Just lmk
