turbo neon - I guess it is hard to see the intercooler if you are behind it all the time. Just kidding. Check out the Dodge website. Kind of a interesting car.

you got nothing to lose , go for it...
I believe its a driver's race , stock for stock your Z should have a slight advantage ... if he's modded -
bye bye Z

I was shopping for a car magazine for a friend of mine and I saw it on a cover of one of the magazines. It said it haves 400 HP factory built. That's a **** of a lot of power for a factory built neon. Anyway, I hate american cars. Imports rule

Eh, no. The following info is factory specs:

QUOTE
2.4 liter turbocharged 16-valve DOHC engine
230 horsepower
250 lb.-ft. of torque
0-60 in 5.8 seconds
New Quaife Automatic Torque Biasing (ATB) differential
And here's the link: SRT-4

Too much sun today...

So when they say factory built, I'm guessing they literally mean it comes out with 400hp from the Dodge plant. That's hard to believe. I've seen some kickass SRT-4's at the drags, but those were modded after the fact.

I'm not going to even think about messing around with any car unless I have a tt kit now!


And yes, I do feel tired beyond belief. Sorry if I offended anybody. :goodtimes:

I'm guessing Mopar has their hand in the 400hp SRT-4</span>

Agree with Dirn. 5.3 can be done if you are the driver that appears in The Run DVD. Which by the way is awesome

'Immature' -well, the SRT-4 a young man's car....& won't be around till middle age. It's like everything else I looked at on the way to buying my Z, just not quite the mix I wanted...They are easily modded & have several stages of factory options -so the economically challenged can get speed on the pmt. plan.

I like RWD & I want a car that will last longer than the pmts. & that's two strikes against the Neon, Leon. Flame for dat, kiddo.
