Is your vehicle due for a new timing belt? We recommend replacing the belt tensioner at the same time with this all inclusive kit.

Introducing the PCI (Preferred Components) Mechanical Conversion Timing Kit for the 95-01 Neon 2.0L SOHC. This kit also serves as a direct replacement (not a conversion) for all 02-05 Neon 2.0L SOHC. In addition to your choice of timing belt, this kit includes a Litten mechanical timing belt tensioner. This allows you to convert your hydraulic system (very expensive to replace) with a less expensive and more reliable mechanical tensioner, or replace the mechanical components on your 02-05.

Note: While this kit is a direct fit replacement, some very minor trimming/clearancing of the inner timing cover may be required for an ideal fit.

      Sohc's do not use a idler pulley. Therefore, one is not included in this kit.

      This is the complete kit for the sohc. The only other thing you should consider replacing is the water pump.

    Are there any benefits going from an hydraulic system to a
    Mechincal one? Price of the 2 you sell seem pretty close, is one more reliable then the other? Thanks

      Neon enthusiasts tend to prefer the mechanical as its simpler, and seems to handle high rpm use better than the hydraulic in theory.
