Default Mopar Build - DF/S Neon

Some health problems in 2018 & 2019 put an end to racing for me. Things were looking better in 2020, so I started to look for a car to race. I stumbled across the “Not for Nuthin’—But Close” & the other race for cheap threads here & thought that this concept fits what I wanted to do. Thanks to Billy Nees & Mark Yacavone & all the others for posting their ideas. New Mopar project is started. Got it home a few days ago. Will be DF/S at 19.85 factor. 2003 Neon R/T, 122" 4cylinder, 150 HP, 5-speed manual. Engine & trans are good. Front K-frame is broken, rusted through on the passenger side. Body is ok but has some rust in the rear quarter, not to bad. It’s not drivable right now because of the broken K-frame & the passenger-side rear brake is locked up. Picking up the replacement K-frame parts on Monday.
Racing Stock Eliminator will be a new experience for me. Any advice is welcome.

Unfortunately it looks like HP Tuners only supports SRT4's

I've looked at some tuners for Neons but haven't got to the point of getting serious about getting something yet. I'm working on getting it drivible. Rear brakes have been fixed. Replacing the K-frame is in the works. Pics are what the current K-frame looks like.
