I have a 2002 Dodge Neon SE. I've had it since 2002 and it's paid off. Once I graduate and get a job, probably in the next 2 years I'm going to get a Honda Civic or some other car. What I would like to do is drop a SRT-4 engine into my Neon along with a trans. It drops right in. I have a bunch of car buddies, one owns a fast as hell SRT-4 and has taken the engine apart so he knows what's up with it. I'm just wondering what surprising costs will come up. Last I checked I could get a engine and trans for under 2k but obviously there are surprise costs. I also know I would need SRT-4 brakes and a SRT-4 fuel pump. I don't want to get rid of this car because it isn't worth much and it's my first car so it has some value to me haha. I just want to have a project car I guess. I know this isn't the typical one but it's what I have.
