true.. a couple of guys have build custom turbo kits around here though, for much cheaper i believe, but with more headaches.. u just need the basics, turbo, manifold, oil line kit, fpr, vacum lines, bov, intercooler, intercooler piping, rubber couplings for intercooler, fuel pump, internal or external, boost gauge, downpipe.. and some other stuff im sure im missing, someone will add it in though.!:thumb:

A turbo kit is pretty simple but using parts off a 4g63 just isn't logical. You may have better luck getting parts off of other factory turbo cars.

That's not true Bd it is the 420a, it's the 2.4L though. What motor did you think it was? Yeah this could be feesable but cost would be high. That car is brand new so the parts will not just be in a junkyard somewhere, you'll have to get them from the dealer.

You're right guy's, I hadn't looked into the srt4, I assumed it would use the 2.4L 420a because that's what I had heard. So no none of those parts will work either. I am wondering about their tranny though, I know it won't bolt up, but maybe the guts would go in out case...... those gear ratio's look nice.

Wasn't callin you out Kirby, just wanted to get it straight in my head (I get confused easily). IMO - I think the Neon needs to change the headlights though they look funny on that car. Just my personal opinion

It's cool bro, I had not done my research before I spoke. That's what happens when you do that. The tranny's prolly won't work but since one is the NVG-t350 and the other is the 850 I was just thinking....
