Just depends on how much money you wanna throw at it. Forced induction if you have money for it. If not, go through the usual channels. Intake/exhaust/cams/higher compression pistons/ head work etc. Not too experienced with that particular engine so I don't know how well it takes to mods, but you can get good power out of anything with enough money and some good machine shops.

The good news is that it will take a fairly good liking to modification, the engine is restricted by its low flowing exhaust ports, and I have a choice of 3 heads that are compatible, the 2.0 SOHC the 2.0 DOHC and the 2.4 DOHC. Most of the parts for this engine are incredibly cheap

Use the heads that give highest compression, port em and get a set of cams lol sounds like you have quite a lot that can be done. Are the crank sprockets even close? Can you swap the sprocket, or would it even be possible to, say, use a 2.4 crank setup to stroke it? Like I said, don't know much but sounds promising.

The 2.4 uses the same crank just different bore and stroke

hey again!

sucks you got the base sohc engine, unfortunately thats the lowest performing of the 3, not to say you cant make it better though.

you also forgot to mention the 2.0 sohc magnum, thats what is in my car. same power output as the dohc 2.0 just a single cam. It's really up to you which way you want to go. mag sohc head would be the easiest swap since everything bolts right up to it, and if you add the rest of the mag goodies its an easy 20hp gain.

if you switch to the dohc head, it will actually drop your compression to 9.3:1 which will decrease your power, but there is an upside. with the dohc head you open up a lot more options if you want to go the forced induction route, cam choices, and better aftermarket selection of parts.

I mostly wanna just get the Magnum Head so my car doesn't look modified and can still put up some kind of a fight and I'm staying away from forced induction because of the automatic trans in the car. I have a compcam picked out, also some pistons for 10.1:1 compression which is up from my 9.4:1, then a 70mm throttle body and the magnum intake manifold if I find one, MSD coil pack and many other things

also with that automatic trans you'll never really be able to get the full potential out of the 2.0 simply because the auto trans just doesnt allow the engine to stay up in the powerband where it needs to be.

5 speed swap is def the way to go with these cars if you can. also the 3.94 mtx gearing is better for performance whereas the 3.55 gearing is better for fuel economy. your choice, both are still better than the atx though lol

you should go to the chrysler show in carlisle, wayyyy more neons

I do plan on going up there sometime in the near future, I would have had my car repaired by now but our body shop hasn't been built yet,, and when I was at the flashlight drags at waynesburg a spark plug was blown out of the head some how and my timing belt went out when I got home and stopped at a stop sign

yeah that was a mock up shot i took right before i dropped it in.

you'll need to register but here is a link to my project log, lots of useful info in there if you plan to stick out the magnum build and want some pointers with good pictures.

as for the "cant make more than 150hp" comments

usually uneducated honda owners say shit like that... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

you can make well beyond that n/a on a 2.0 engine
