    life of my 96 neon with a 2.4 swap!

    so the guy i was talking to about his neon with 2.4 swap finally came off it. i drove it home a little bit ago

    gave him both of my dakota's and sadly all my rc stuff but i now have the car ive been wanting

    i wanted to switch to electric anyway since mine were all nitro so im not to overly bumbed.

    the one dakota was ready to drive and was a 94 extended cab short bed 2wd with 3.9L v6 and roughly 193,000 miles. the other was a 92 standard cab long bed 4x4 with 5.2L 318 v8 and 135,000 ish miles. the 4x4 has a rusted out body, the 2wd has a rusted out frame. and the 4x4 needs an ignition relay, and a freeze plug. then the rc's were my 4907 racemaxx, and my slayer pro 4x4.

    but man this neon is sick! i cant even begin to describe the world of difference between the 2.4 dohc 5 speed compared to my 2.0 sohc automatic. its got some intake work done to it, atleast a stage 2 if not a stage 3 clutch, it has the rt wheels, full rt interior, came with a set of brand new slicks mounted on some nice wheels. this car doesnt matter what gear your in, it will instantly set you back in the seat. 5th gear cruising you can go half throttle and your doing 90 before you even have time to realize it. car has 1 year old kyb struts with racing springs on the back and brand new matching set to go on the front still. urethane motor mount inserts so basically solid mounts lol. bugger bushings, battery relocated to the front right corner, the whole nine yards. needs fenders and a hood then 2 dents fixed and paint. ill get some pics up in the daylight. its sick nasty lol

    ok............ little teaser........ heres the pics from when it was on craigslist before the guy i got it from bought it from his buddy. who built it.







    only rust is just right in front of the left rear door at the wheel well. the other rust thats here and there is all surface just coming through from the primer.


    and heres the exact posting for it to.

    Im selling my 1996 Dodge Neon 2.4 swap. The engine is out of a 2000 Dodge Stratus that had 70k on it. It was installed about three years ago, Ive put about 30k on it since then. It was my daily driver but needs tires, which I have just dont have the time to get them installed.....I went through the engine, It has all new gaskets and seals from the head to the oil pan, Srt timing set (tensioner, idler belt etc.) Balance shafts are removed, head was cut .035 to raise the comp. ratio. It has an AMM no 90 lower intake manifold, solid bobble strut, full prothane motor mounts all around. Egr has been removed and blocked off. New struts on the rear with Performance Driven High rate springs, (have new struts and springs for the front, never installed.) Battery has been relocated to the bumper. Runs good, shifts good, gets around 30 mpg. I ran it at the strip three years ago once I got it on the road. It ran high 14's with slicks. Just dont have time or money to put into it, Full R/t interior etc. There is rust starting to show through the primer, bodys a little rough. But it doesnt leak a drop of oil, Ive only ran Mobil 1 full sythetic through it.

    1500 obo, I have extra parts to go with it if I get the right price. I have a set of Mickey Thompson et. slicks and a custom ordered Big tube kirk racing header


    now i got the slicks even just not the header. but guy i got it from said i could probably get that for about $100.



    so what you guys think?
