V6 swap into a second gen Dodge Neon R/T!

This is an uncommon Dodge Neon engine swap! A Chrysler 3.8 V6 motor swap into a 2001 Dodge Neon R/T! This Neon has a Chrysler export center grille, 00-02 Neon snowflake wheels and otherwise looks like a regular 2001 Neon R/T. shows that the 3.8 V6 produced a wide array of horsepower and torque depending on what year it was from. We believe this 3.8 engine is from roughly the 95-00 era. So, thats good for 166-180 hp and 227-240 torque. Wow, if a Neon like this had 180 hp and 240 torque from a NA engine it would be a lot of fun!

Correlation between weight of wheels, and the strength of the wheels. Why its important to not go TOO light!
