changed motor in neon with sohc does not have as much power as before

Asked by Jan 04, 2015 at 01:24 PM about the 2005 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: General

1 Answer

90,345

So did the original engine have a DOHC? If it did then yes there will be a noticeable loss in power due to head design, then DOHC is by far a more efficient design than the SOHC so a major power loss is just the way it is.
