    DISCLAIMER
    I'm starting this build thread now, even though I've owned this car for 12 years now so a lot of things will be missing. Ill throw in some older pictures I have found but wont get too much into detail about past mods. Will try to keep current with everything I have currently going on with the car.


    Purchased car in '07, old pictures I found from when it was turbo'd in its original chassis.

    The car started to leak water through the firewall and since the body and paint weren't in such good condition I decided to swap into a newer car that I purchased that had a blown motor.

    Goodbye to the old car. This was all maybe 6 years ago now.

    Purchased a blown 2.0 motor from a 2000+ neon for $50 that I decided I can use to rebuild. Motor taken apart before going off to machine shop. IMG_20180925_184409.jpg

    Motor back from shop on stand ready for new parts.

    Reusing the head from the old motor with Stage 2 cams, retainers, springs, and upgraded lashers/adjusters. Head before being sent off to get cleaned and surfaces checked and pressure checked. IMG_20190424_194254.jpg IMG_20190424_194332.jpg

    Also noticed the harmonic dampener is different between the Neon motor (Right) and the Eclipse motor(Left). IMG_20190422_202926.jpg

    Oil pickup tube purchased from DCR does not fit the 420a oil pan, sent email to DCR waiting to hear back from them. Product is listed under 420a on their site but it looks like it is only meant for the bigger neon oil pan.

    Painted the engine bay, was way easier than I anticipated it being. Its not perfect but I like the outcome a whole lot more than what it used to look like. IMG_20190521_171819.jpg
