FS: Turbo 1998 Neon R/T

Post by cptcheapo »

I'm hoping to find another Neon fanatic to provide a good home for my car. I've had it for 4 years to have a track toy. I bought another car, so I don't have time for this one anymore. A lot of the work on the car was done by the previous owner. I swapped in the engine a couple years ago (was a built 2.0L turbo before the 2.4L turbo). Nearly everything on this car has been changed to increase performance (engine, trans, brakes, suspension, etc). If you know anyone who may be interested, please pass this along.
