Links for making a NEON faster, lots of this info will apply to any FWD 4 cyl car....

(NOTE! build the 4 door neon, not the 2 door, the 4 door is lighter and stronger!!)

PLUS it is MUCH easier to weld in the cage on a 4 door, the rear doors provide ample access to weld up the rear of the cage!

I really can't think of anything huge except "shorts" Zach's car we left stock keys and all. Bill Mcbrides car I wired up with a push button and toggle through teh stock wiring. driver requested this. You can elemitnate all the non important wires and the fuse box. I learned this from Dennis. That is alot of weight in wires to remove from the car. So that would in theory be weight you can add back in where you want it.

I found some ON-line wiring diagrams for Neons from autozone,,,

After you guys look over these diagrams, please list the circuits You guys would eliminate such as,,,

Horn circuit,,
radio circuit,,

What other circuits would you folks eliminate?

Ed,

Approximate how much weigght may be saved, 5 lbs, 10 lbs, 15lbs......

Couple this with the time it takes you to do all this wiring work and let me know if that time would be better spent working on other areas.

Thanks

Russ

I can rewire a car in about 20 mins. When I took the last load of cooper wire to the scrap yard it was the easiest $35 I have ever made. I have seen all circuits eleminated in car with the exception of the starter ,power to the ecm, the power in from the battery,and the fuel pump wire. Hook up any aftermarket fuel pump to the orignal wiring so it kills when the engine dies. Everything else is under hood.
