the 95 block was also the same that was used for the 4g63 mitsubishi motor....with the main bearing notches on opposite sides..unlike the 96-99 blocks

Yeah, awesome find .

I plan on getting mine ported, 3 angle vaulve job and cylinders honed.
I have a new timing belt , water pump and head gasket kit w/ bolts.
I still want to do the cam and new rings while the engine is apart.

What other internals should I be prepair to replace ?

Sealed Power, Federal Mogul, hypereutectic coated skirt pistons... I ordered them and have them here. good call man[sm=goodidea.gif] ! I also have found out that I can use the valves out of a Neon Magnum (2001+) motor for more air flow. And the cam from one looks good also. I may still go with a Zex too though, dunno yet.. Now how NOS and turbos... this is a never ending project!!!

Works great also. I've had magnum springs and cam in a 95 head before.

Magnum springs from the dealer are pretty reasonable....about $50-$60 if I remember correctly.

My ACR is stock except for the new CNNP Race Ported head I just swapped onto it (has the magnum springs in there as well). My idler pulley failed, snapped and shredded my timing belt and belt some valves, so I put the head on there.

Sounds fun to drive das2123.
[sm=gears.gif]
Also sounds like you know Neons.
I've found this->
Magnum Valves:
intake, 7 bucks a pc.
exhaust, 10 bucks a Pc.
Mag Cam; $222

TheMagnum motor has bigger valves than my 97 SOHC
I see the words " plug and play" is this true for swap'n valves after a little bore ?

I just ordered the magnum valve springs... 16 of them
Now this valve mith has me thinking. Are my valves bad ?
Don't care if they are bad, if I can get more HP out of bigger valves sweet.

Well considering they are both SOHC, I would think you could swap them in. But I don't know anyone that has taken that route.

It's time for a camshaft.

No valve jobs...
I have seen the COMP Cams and I'm not sure if I can use the one for the RT.

After reading this post as a reminder, I remembered that the R/T cam looked good! (It's been awhile!)

So I guess the 2001 R/T camshaft is the BEST choice for a 97 SOHC? I think this is a drop in too ?
And I need new springs ? (The ones I ordered never came, I could have sent Chuck Noris to the bank over this stupid daily limit rule.)

I will be orderinga camshaft with in the next week or so.

ANY feedback is welcome !!!

But, there are any more cars out there that need to be out ran by a Neon Haahahahahahaaa

So as of now I plan on getting a 01 R/T Magnum Camshaft for my 97 SOHC

To answer your question yes the 01 - 02 RT cam is the magnum cam... its slightly hotter of a cam then the 95... 6-10hp gain from your stock cam... Depending on your current air flow mods...

So whats the best Cam for the 97 SOHC w/ high flow intake and exhaust ? (header, CIA, catback.. )

The COMP cam offers 12-14 HP at wheels, but is says for R/T or ported heads...
