    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?

    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.

    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
