Sep 4, 2008 update to the Dodge Neon ACR project car

Busywork

We installed a Flowmaster exhaust in place of the original.
Energy Suspension polyurethane inserts will keep our engine in one place.
The engine is waiting for camshafts.

We’re waiting for the passenger-side engine mount bracket as well as a pair of Crane camshafts for our Neon. Not ones to sit on our hands, we’ve been busy getting other things done, like installing a Flowmaster exhaust, getting our engine mounts extra beefy with the help of Energy Suspension inserts, and further working on the long block itself.

Once we get the bracket and cams, we should be able to finish assembling the drivetrain and get it installed in the car.

Very nice! I bet that Flowmaster muffler will sound pretty fly once you get to fire it up.
