Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Area?

Post by SOHC_Highline » Tue Apr 03, 2007 7:13 pm

So, I've been really getting into the Neon scene lately and I was wondering if there are any other fellow members from or around the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area?

Ehhh, the trans is on it's way out the door already and i haven't found a replacement yet.

Not to mention they've got cameras all over the place at those buildings. And the occifers know who I am, what i'm driving and where i live. Kinda makes it hard to do stupid stuff, so i just don't lol.

I won't say much about the cameras, but there aren't as many as you would think. I just kidding man. But I would probably fall out of my chair if I looked out my window and saw a neon smoking its tires in the parking lot. :lol:

With the hour drive to work (one way) i definitely do not drive it much to Coopersburg. Unfortunately, the majority of my time in a car is going to work. The other reason I haven't had it out much is that I am dyno tuning it at World Motorsports right now. The FIC was getting a new map and I installed World's PBC-1 boost controller for in-car control. Should be done tomorrow. I try to keep it under 5000 miles a year to be emissions exempt. I will say that I am definitely making at least two longer distance drives this year in my neon: one to Atco for the Nopi show and one to OCMD for their big car/truck show in June. I hope to see some of you guys at either of the shows! (we need to rep more 1st gens at shows!)

haha if you saw my car you wouldn't want it at a show either. But that's the sweet part about it. It looks pretty much like a stock neon.

The only thing that sets off the 'modded alarm' is the gauge pillar pod and the huge tach, and the 4 pins holding the hood on. Hopefully i'm going to get rid of the tach and pillar pod and move on to more tasteful placement of gauges.

But it's hard to hide what's done to the motor...but that's a given.

Nope, it's not ready for it yet as far as i'm concerned.

There's a lot of bugs and gremlins in the car yet. I'm doing my best to sort everything out but money/time's an issue sometimes. Since the car's not my daily driver I'm not in a huge rush to get things done, not to mention the lack of a garage makes it a bit difficult to work on the car, with it being so cold and all.

I still need to buy/make an intake manifold, get a better header, put my exhaust together (currently it's open header),swap a 3.94 into the car and tune.
