    Dropping a line...

    What's going on people?

    I'm a Dodge Neon enthusiast from the Pocono's, Pa currently driving/modding two Neon's, but I have begun to gain interest in the WRX's which is why I am here. Not here to flame or cause any trouble

    Looking forward to shooting the sh*t and learning more about the cars you guys drive.

    98 Plymouth Neon turbo - 208 whp/220 ft-lbs torque @ 10 psi 13.7@106mph 2.3 60' time (I need practice lol)

    I have to credit the original owner of the car who did a hell of a job in parts selection, workmanship, and tuning. If I recall correctly, he invested about $5,000 in the turbo and fuel system. Throw in another $1,000 for stage III axles, $350 for the 4 puck unsprung clutch.

    I usually prefer not to buy a car that is modified so heavily, but after getting to know the owner and seeing how knowledgeable he was... I couldn't pass the deal up Paid $4,000 for the car which had 44,000 original miles.

    Right now the car is down for the winter, I have forged connecting rods, low comp. JE pistons/rings and a few other goodies waiting for the spring to go in.

    Take care guys,
    Jay
