View Full Version : Anyone think of a dohc neon 2.0 yet?

I know its less displacement... but almost seems like if you could get a stock megasquirt map off the tons of neon people who run it.

You could just fire it up and tune from there.

Maybe in something like a shadow/omni. J-body too heavy?

I was thinking abou tit in the future for a L Body. maby even single cam since they are even easyer to find.

Yes, actually I have suggested it to several people. The stock 2.0 DOHC block responds very well to low boost levels, and with some simple upgrades, higher boost pressures are fine as well.

It's a good idea.

the single cams are crappy for power though..

I was wondering about this also for fuel economy reasons. Don't Neons get close to 40mpg on the highway?

most do mid 30's 5 speed but you can get that in a good running 8v

With my 1999 Neon RT (3.94FD) I got 39-40 MPG on a highway trip. I could have done better with a 3.55 :)
