Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Final list of Upgrades. Please suggestions

1. Cold Air Intake system (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-96-97-98-99-DODGE-NEON-DOHC-COLD-AIR-INT AKE-SYSTEM_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38634QQitemZ8004423780QQrdZ1)
2. Front Strut Bar (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-99-DODGE-NEON-FRONT-TOWER-STRUT-BAR-96-9 7-98_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33591QQitemZ8005159352QQrdZ1)
3. Coilover Springs and shocks (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-99-DODGE-NEON-BLUE-ADJUSTABLE-COILOVERS- SPRINGS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33582QQitemZ8005095113QQrdZ1)
4. Muffler (gota go to the shop and see whats what)
5. 16in Rims with tires (used)
6. Side Graphics (Nothing big, just something like they had on the skyline in 2F2F the little line thats dashed)

I have money coming in steadily, and can do many things. In the long run I want to spend about a 1000 on the performance and looks. And whats the difference between intake m antifold, exhaust mantifold, and headers?

Intake manifolds are these:

Where an exhaust manifold is:

One takes in the air gas mixture, the other sends it out...

How about a high flow catalytic converter? Or you could just hollow it out.

posted by  SlipKnoT

what sense does that make? :thumbs:

posted by  6000LE

Isn't hollowing out the cats illegal?

posted by  chris_knows

Yeah, but my dad and I did it on his Alfa 164L :laughing:

posted by  SlipKnoT

Was it worth it?

posted by  chris_knows

posted by  6000LE

Highflow ones are legal.

posted by  6000LE

I would sau about 10-12hp.

posted by  SlipKnoT

That would probably work....but im not so sure that what their saying about it being for a Dodge Neon is true.

posted by  SlipKnoT

what do you mean

posted by  6000LE

Sometimes those type of things on eBay arent always very truthful. I mean, you might get it, and then it wont fit your car. Thats why I would go with andysautosport.com.

posted by  SlipKnoT

dont wana spend THAT MUCH i can just check their feedback scores

posted by  6000LE

A header is the same thing as a manifold, fyi

posted by  Oomba

an intake or exhaust mantifold? i believe its exhaust
and thank you for not being an idiot and actually giving answers :clap:

posted by  6000LE

I was simply referring to the thread you made about your car vs. integra's :thumbs:

posted by  Pythias

now i understand :thumbs:

posted by  6000LE

FYI make sure you get the right kind of parts for your car. There are tons of rip-off intakes on ebay that only give out 1/4 of what a real intake would, one of my favorite sayings is "you get what you pay for" and if a good intake is around 200-300 and you pay 50 on ebay then your getting crap. just a little food for thought

Except if..........

take a look at the page and show me whats good

posted by  6000LE

Well since I dont wana blow a lot on 7 horsepower, I am just gona get rims, and a muffler. Go rice. Na im kidding but its just waht i wana do at least until I get some more money.

posted by  6000LE

No offense but that is the kind of thing I was talking about, although I don't know much about intakes I know enough to say that isn't a good one, if I were you I'd ask someone else for help, also if you can't get the info your looking for on here either ask some friends, go to some other forums, and call a performance shop, I have one around here, I'm sure they could tell you anything you needed to know as far as price range estimated and estimated power. HP isn't cheap and that is suppose to give you 5-10 horses? for 20 dollars? 40-50 after shipping? I don't think so. Honestly a GOOD intake your gonna spend money on, in my opinion it is smarter to spend alot of moeny on something good than spend a little bit on crap.

EDIT: Also I am 90 percent sure they have websites to make little things like that, for prolly about 20 dollars or less. When that one costs around 50 and what you get a nice color?

posted by  Pythias

in that case il just get rims, a fart cannon, and one of these

wont even bother painting it
its like the thing they have on the skylines

posted by  6000LE

Dang shipping is alot, if I were you i'd just buy a cheap one locally cause ud have like aroudn a 100 in that one after shipping lol

posted by  Pythias

Okay....meathead.


Get a high flow cat + cat-back exhaust - look into Borla or Thermal R&D. And for the love of god do not get a coffee can tip, its a !@#$ing neon.

That track pipe you showed in one your links is illegal for street driving.


For CAI - get Iceman, best you can get for the neons.


Try and get a magnum header for the exhaust as well, may need some extra work...

And if you're getting a front strut bar, look into a rear bar as well, and possibly an anti sway kit.



And for the love of god, do NOT get the decals, may I remind you that once again, its a !@#$ing neon!



oh yeah.

go hop on to www.neontuners.com and ask for this. and tell them what you want to do. go get laughed at some more while youre at it.

il do with my car whatever i want
seeing as its my car
you dont have to drive it
so lay off

posted by  6000LE

Then don't come on here asking for advice if your not going to take it smart @$$. Your the one that asked for advice and when someone gives you halfway decent advice you say "oh its my car Imma do what I want with it", then DONT come on here asking for advice. If you want to just rice it out, which seems EXACTLY what your going to do then just look at any POS on the road with a fart can. :fu:

posted by  Pythias

well if he gave advice and dindt tell me to go get laughed at then id take it differently

posted by  6000LE

He did give you advice, just not the advice you wanted, he said if you wanna go do that with your car then go get laughed at- the advice Dont be an idiot and become another ricer. There's enough fo those out there without your little neon sport being added to the list.

posted by  Pythias

if thats what i wana do then why not
rims are not rice
the muffler is
so what
i dont have huge money to spend on my car
and it will never be fast because its automatic
so i decided to work on style

posted by  6000LE

Just because its an automatic doesn't mean it can/never will be fast. As for rice ALL those things added together ARE rice. Seperately no. But together thats screams Rice. If that's what you wanna do fine. But like I said don't ask for help/advice if your gona act like a 4 year old.

Well techinically you would have to be a magic ****in pixie to mod a 3 spd auto

posted by  99integra

Man, you are more mentally handicapped then I initially assumed. I tell you what PARTS to look for, and you're telling me to shut up?! I give you a link to a forum DEDICATED TO TUNING NEONS, and you're telling me to shut up?!

And did you not say that have a steady flow of cash? Most of the upgrades mentioned will be cheap, especially if you hop on to a Neon forum and buy them slightly used, or as a group discount buy.


What is your major malfunction son?!

:laughing:

no you only gotta be a magic pixie to fix a 93' Ranger that won't run.

definitely has the blue oval symbol.

You think a ridiculously oversized, obnoxiously noisy and irritating muffler adds style?

posted by  hondaman

Actually the smaller ones do

posted by  99integra

...? As in?

Exhaust tips?

posted by  99integra

Oh well yeah...but if a fart sound comes out the back it's still not very classy... :ohcrap:
