The pictures don't show the complete manifold but it looks like a gasket match and slight port exit clean up. Was anything done to the other side?

That's a 90s Neon - they weren't turbo'd - did you stuff an SRT-4 engine in it?

The Turbofold bolts right onto the DOHC head. I used an SOHC shortblock with the flat top pistons and the DOHC head to lower compression. And used a returnline fuel set up and Vortec FMU and 36lb injectors.

I checked out your Manifold Madness and I can guarantee that the exhaust exit side is no where near opend up like that. That is some nice work!! Mine is just cleaned up where any rough spots were. I didn't realize that the "elbow mod" opend it up that much too.

Well, I might be starting the weight reduction early. Someone wants to purchase the power steering pump. Can't wait to get wrenching on this bad-boy!!
Have also made a deal on Neon Parts for a set of LCA's with prothane bushing kit in them.

Minus 20 here today, so watching videos of the base runs of the PT. Racing my dads Mustang, and then some type of Honda.


Where did the Honda go? :-P
