????OmniGTI said:A few corrections here. First of all, the SRT4 rods/pistons are a much better choice for this application. The 5 speed tranny with any standard (non srt4) car is not stronger, in fact its weaker. You only need to fabricate 1 motor mount, not 3.
This goes against some pretty well documented fast cars. Maybe you have a different source that states opposite?
True, the SRT pistons are a good choice, however the rods are same if not weaker than the T2 rods.
The stock 350 tranny in a neon has proven to be a strong choice, and needs work on the diff (typical TD stuff).
My opinion is just that, my opinion. I have done the hybrid thing (I think I had the first website for it), have done the 2.4 thing, and have done the SRT4 thing. This doesnt mean I am an expert, just some guy who has tried stuff.
