Loaded my buggy up today to go riding and everything was great. Unloaded drove thru the woods and it was running great but as soon as I went to climb a hill it did not have any power. Under a light load it ran fine and drove fine but heavy load it just didn't have any power. After checking everything out we figured out that the coil wasn't grounded well. The 4 holes that the bolts go thru to mount the coil also are the ground, the holes have copper inserts that complete the ground when it's bolted to the intake. After cleaning the copper inserts and the bosses on the intake it was back to full power. There was just enough corrosion built up to make all the difference. Just thought I would share this info incase anyone runs into this issue.

This was in my orange buggy, not the new one. I'm hoping to be trying the new one out by the end of next month! :D

Get an accel or msd coil for a dodge neon they ground @ the head of the bolt
http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detai ... ppt=C03345

Ps u will need the coil plug too
http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detai ... connector+

Can pick up a little more torque too

Pss u will need 99 or newer wires too or make some bigger one to carry the bigger voltage if you are stock 98 or older soob this is almost 3x more spark voltage
