I picked this car up in August of 2009 with about 54k miles on it. So far I have only done a few things to it. Mainly appearance stuff, nothing on the engine quite yet. Check out the page and leave some feedback.

So I have been driving around a while and with the check engine ligh on and have done EVERYTHING to try and fix it. Finally after a few months I gave up on trying to figure it out and decided to do a compression test at school. (I should have done this prior to spending money on fixing it but thats in the past now)
The compression test results came up with a bad exhaust valve in cylinder 4. I did all the work myself besides machining the head. I had that done by a machinest. I had pictures of the work but lost them on my other phone.
Passenger side and front shots.
Driver side and rear shots.
Interior and a picture of the stock rims.
Another interior shot with the other shift knob and picture of the white guages.
I have updated my car and uploaded some pictures of what I've done so far.
I unmarked my car and re-tinted my third brake light. When I tinted it a while back, it dried all funny and i always bugged me so I finally decided to redo it.
I also decided to tint my taillights. I love them tinted.
Removed the side moldings and I painted my old shift knob to match my car with a little bit up cutting and drilling work and it looks good in my opinion. If anyone wants to know how I did it just drop me a message. (Not too complicated) I'm ultimately planning on installing a short throw shifter along with the SRT4 shift knob. If anyone knows where i can pick up a SRT4 shift knob or one really similar to it please let me know. I like the design of it.
There are no pictures of the engine at this point because i dont have anything done to it.
Tnted side markers and pictures.
Eventually I am going to lower it a little (not as low as my other Neon), adding a short throw shifter, adding an exhaust system with different intake and exhaust manifolds, upgrading my TB to 60mm (nothing higher) intake, and somewhere down the road I am going to drop a new engine and transmission in it.

Nice car so far. It's great that you're able to repair it so well! Keep up the great work and keep us posted!!
I got the exhaust rear section from a member off the forum (2gn.org).
Hey bro. Installing the exhaust wasn't hard at all. Definitely needed a buddy though to help me get the exhaust hangers hooked on the car. As for the piping, I had to get an adapter at Autozone since the ACR rear section piping is larger than the SXT (I think SXT has 2.0" and the ACR and R/T's had 2.25" or 2.50".. can't remember). Other than that, it works wonderfully. I love the sound I get from it as well, nice tone (not loud, but not quiet).
Thanks! They are 16" MB Wheels Mesh X. I got them from discount tire direct. I like the color choice as well : )
great car to work on,keep up the good work... see my ride too.
