Default January 10'-11' Build Off 05 Dodge Neon Wace Cawr.

Well...I'll have pictures up tomorrow. The Lishy got rearended by a Chevy Tahoe and her 94 Plymouth Sundance got totaled. I went today and bought an 05 Dark Metallic Blue Dodge Neon with a 2.0 SOHC and a 5 spd....48K miles, it's pretty much immaculate and i got it for $6,200. Tex and I are in the process of figuring out the mod list, so stay tuned...

ACR goodness:


The ACR was a factory option for the Neon for SCCA competition. Neon ACR owners tell me that in the later 90s the ACR was dominating it's class in SCCA and in Auto-x, enough so that the long standing racers (Acuras, Hondas, BMW 3-series I even think) attempted to ban the ACR from competition.

Throwing around the idea of using ACR-spec parts in the suspension. However, SS keeps wanting to throw on ****ing stickers though, and paint the drum brakes.

As I see it you need only three upgrades:

1. The biggest exhaust you can badly weld in place.
2. The biggest NOS bottle you can fit in place of the rear seats.
3. NOS purge kit to impress the ladies.

Other than that good luck!!

Cherry bomb exhaust.

Have you researched to see what mitsubishi parts will work on that motor? A lot of mitsu design went into the Dodge 4s. Back in the day, I rocked a pt cruiser for 8 months, and a buddy that had one had put some euro spec mitsu parts on his, it was pretty quick (just god awful ugly).

LSD would be nice if it isn't standard. Lowering and other suspension mods are a plus. Try to find modifications with a consistant powerband, that way if you do make an autox car you don't have to worry about having power when you need it and when and how it will react.

As for exterior styling the best looking neons emulate the aftermarkett styling of the bug eye wrxs.

Wassup SS! I got an '03 Sliver Neon that i've been slowly turning into a "sporty looking" car at the moment aswell-lol. I wrecked it last year Sept. but I got her fixed after a month or so and then decided this year to put a lil more love into her than leaving her stock I went on Fleabay and got a few part for cheap Mopar parts are definitely worth looking for! So far I got the rear mopar tail lights, front black bezel headlights, LED Foglamps, HID Super White light conversion kit, LED license plate light, euro clear style side markers with LED bulds, black hood protector, lip for the truck, cold air intake, short stubby antenna, aftermarket tuner exhaust, Window visors, braceletless wipers, a nice lil Kenwood cd player, and front and rear Mopar add-on body kit (not yet installed until I get my set of 15-17" rims on). I might get a spoiler soon but it's a slow WIP so i'll see what other deals I can get on fleabay-lol
Looking forward to seeing the pics up!

Btw, My 1st Neon was a 01 Metallic Blue one - Love that color!

I was wondering how that weapon R Secret Weapon Intake would sound in a Neon? When you get it if possible can you get a before and after sound of the engine for comparison by chance? I opted for a cheapy chrome finish intake which will boost me bout 5-10HP and few lbs of torque in mid range gear The F/R srtut bars are a nice addition too, i still gotta order mine yet-lol.
I saw a few sway bars on ebay and they're pretty pricey plus they all seem to be for SRT4 models (not sure if that will be any different in to install on the Base SE or SXT model?).

(my bad SS on messing up my first post as to the thread's owner )

The SRT-4 is basicly set up the same as a SE or a SXT Neon, the only huge difference is that it has a 2.4L 4 Cylinder with a turbo charger on it & a body kit. I only know this because my step dad has a 2003 Dodge neon that he turned into a R/T Clone. 2" Drop, aftermarket sways bars (Strut bars?), K&N Intake, is set up for a chip but its not in there. 5 Speed Standard, After market Exhaust, a few other things that I can't think of right now. He isn't completly done with it yet, still needs the stripes on the hood and on to the front bumper. Also it has like 16k miles on it, it was sitting in a garage for most of its life.

Here are some pics of it.









Also sorry for the thread Jack lol

Sounds like a nice car, now it just needs to be riced up. lol J/K

Need to get some pics up of the car.

These dodge neons are pretty fast little cars. Especially the cars with 5 speed standard transmissions. I looked up the specs on the SRT-4, 215Hp, like around 235ft lbs of torque, and I think 0-60 in about 5 sec's.

Here are some crappy night time pictures. I'll get more tomorrow. Picked up a set of Motegi Mr2 17" rims and some 205/40's at a good price. The rims are slightly dished, so they look pretty cool on the car.





The car doesn't have a tach, so I picked up a Sunpro 2 5/8" (the smallest that I could find). Lishy decided that she wanted some black headlights, so I'll check into that. Besides rims and headlights, the only other exterior mods are going to be done to the front bumper, possibly, including cutting out the grille bars at the bottom of the bumper and removing the chrome inserts over the cross hairs.

Bump with better pictures. By the way, Meguire's NXT wax does wonders.








PS...Anybody with some Photoshop skills that feels like dropping it for me a couple of inches, it'd do me a big favor...
