Cold Air Intake and Throttle Body

Hello everyone,

my 97 neon is all stock. I want to start doing some performance upgrades and heard that an air intake will increase performance, especially for DOHC 2.0L 5-speed. Is this true? Is it worth the 250+ dollars? I also hear that installing a bigger throttle body will increase performance significantly ?

It's just not worth it. On a 2.0 you won't get much of a difference.

You can do some research around websites if you want to see what they say about inhancing performance. First thing I'd do to inhance performance is a total ignition upgrade. But hey, that's what I'd do.

Really..hmm.. I am very new to this, would you mind telling me what would be involved in an ignition upgrade? Are you talking about spark plugs, wires etc...?????
