What would it take to turbo a 1st gen. Neon? I have my Mitsu and know I will need bigger injectors and a bigger fuel pump. What else?

Thanks.
Gary

intercooler, if you want it to last anytime, and retard your timing

go to the whinny *****es of neons.org there is quite a bit of stuff... in fact the hahn kit doesnt come with bigger injectors or a fuel pump... since it's a low psi setup.... but chris barnett has hit 11.99 on stock engine and only 9 psi... so check it out....

You can use an srt-4 manifold assuming it is a dohc...it'll bolt right up minus 2 bolts

the hahn racecraft kit uses stock fuel pump (just added a booster pump) and injectors, if it's a low boost setup you can get away with stock injectors, but 24's are recomended. FPR, RRFPR, manifold, s-16g is a good on, or a t-3/t4 hybrid depending on your manifold plans.. return line, spoolboy fuel pump mod, missing link, and oil, and coolant lines, along with misc fittings.... breif list not including piping, intercooler, blood seat tears, lighter wallet, and a nice BOV (if it's 5 speed)... good luck... i'm doing one as welll feel free to pm me.. i'm doing a 2.4, dohc srt manifold, and other goodies in a 96 acr.

Good luck turbo charging a neon or any american n/a car for that matter, most who do it with a neon, get sick of it due to all the problems. But do let us know your results.

Hahn Racecraft has their new Port Fueler system, which instead of running RRG regulators and all that stuff, adds 4 extra injectors to your intake. Its a manifold spacer that bolts inbetween the head and intake manifold. With this system, you will not need to add a return line, only a high volume in-tank pump. Hahn will program it for your setup before shipping, but if you need custom fuel tuning, it is also laptop programmable.

When not in boost, your car will drive like stock. When the boost comes on, the port fueler takes care of your extra fuel needs.

Most of the problems come from doing half-ass setups. People take a car that doesn't run correctly in the first place and then try to turbo it.

I am working on making up an adapter so I can put a srt-4 turbo on my buddies sohc neon. If you want reliable, stick with the srt-4 turbo/manifold. You can't beat using a turbo(on a neon at least) that has factory proven reliability. No smoking junk rebuilt, just a slightly used srt-4 turbo.

You don't have to reduce timing if you have lowered your compression. Just make sure you have some good leaded 100+ in there when you are at the dragstrip.

I've been using the srt-4 turbo since before many people even owned their srt's. Everyone kept saying "that turbo is junk, don't waste your time, it's too small".

Since march 2003 I've put 35,000+ miles on my turbo neon. It's not my daily driver, but I love it so much that I drive it whenever I get the chance. It has never left me on the side of the road, but I have had a few issues with the serpentine belt that runs the alternator and a/c which led to a few close calls.

I only get 18-20 mpg in the city, but on the highway averaging 75-85mph I get a solid 34-36 mpg(it's a 5-speed).

I will get into the 11s on this turbo without nitrous. I just need better slicks..

jdawg is keeping our cars runningjdawg is keeping our cars running
is it any easier on a eclipse non turbo? the exh manifold is in the front, my girl wants her car faster and i cant talk her into n02 (shes afraid of fines) I got a spare mitsu teo4 layin around in good shape. Does anyone know if the 2.5" swingvalve will bolt to a turbo that had a 2.25", for that matter? I got stuck with the little one. I thought the little mitsu with fast spool up would be great, and if I limited it to like 8 or 9 psi then i wouldnt have to do major upgrades, just a little fuel tweaking.
