    Did I run a fake/fukked SRT-4?

    The other night on the way home from work I ran into this black SRT-4 on the highway. I was behind him just crusin along when he moved over and waved me to come along side. Clearly he wanted to play and from 60+ I figured my Utec Stage III was about to get smoked. Needless to say we both jumped on it and from 60 to 120 I put 3 to 4 cars on him. WTF? He had a girl in the car with him but I can't see that making much difference at 60. Besides she was only around 120lbs from what I could see.

    Now I KNOW a normal neon wouldn't even come close. It would have been 10 to 20 cars. Also know an SRT-4 should have beaten me from a 60+ roll. The only thing I can think of is it's modded and someone was completely clueless as to what he was doing.

    did it have the dual exhaust in the back? was it loud? did you see the hood scoop? red brake calipers?

    I know what an SRT-4 looks like.. And if this was a neon they did the whole front clip, wheels, wing, and exhaust. It was just getting night time so I couldn't make out a FMIC in my mirrors.

    Now with that said I have been fooled before. A guy with a Lancer did a good enough job that with the hood down you wouldn't be able to tell it wasn't an EVO. After he popped the hood my 1st thought was "Man if he just spent the money he used to make it look like an EVO he could have gotten one.".

    I I've raced a stock SRT4 on DRs. He put 2.5 cars on me at the launch because I bogged. At the end, I pulled him in, and put over a car on him. This was on a Cobb OTS VF34 map that ran horribly on my car. Stock TMIC. I'm talking less than 10psi of boost before 4k & max boost of 14.5psi, 2psi short of target. It probably only made 230-240whp. If your TXS III, then thats around where you should be at. If it was from a high roll, I'm sure the results would have been similar to yours.

    Really? For some reason I thought a stock SRT-4 would walk me from a roll that fast.

    Dodge is selling a regular neon that has the scoop, spoiler and the dual outlet exhaust. May have been that, or could have been what other people have said already.

    Good job man... sounds like that could be the difference between him running from 4th instead of 3rd.... Who knows, maybe your car is nuts... you guys should be about even... how would you do compared to a from those conditions, because from a roll, the srt-4 and sti are pretty close..... +1sti but not by a whole lot

    It's possable he has a boost leak and doesn't even know it.

    Plus it's amazing what can happen on the street. The other day I raced a stock srt with a hole in the waste gate line so his boost was around 20 dropping to 15. He put three cars on me from a 40 mph roll, all before I could even hook up. lol

    I would think to walk a stock srt like that you'd need a good bit more than 235 hp.

    actually its possible he ran into a dodge neon srt, its basically a se or sxt with the srt package, minus the 2.4 engine and it being boosted. the best way to distinguish the srt from the real srt-4 is
    1-the rear badge, if it says srt-4 then its boosted
    2-the srt-4 has 2 small holes under the hood whereas the piece is solid on the srt
    here's what i mean
    pic below is a 'normal' neon:

    this is the boost srt-4:

    so there you have it. hope that helps.

    actually thats the super charge concept pic, but close enough. the srtdesign has the srt front bumper, minus the nostrils as shown above. it also steals the srt4s hood and has the rear wing. but has the stock looking dual exhaust which is tiny. 2inch or so. the most identifing feature is the srtdesign retain the stock sxt wheels.

    Well I can't tell for sure if it didn't have the "nostrils" or not. It did have the SRT wheels, but thats an easy change for a fake SRT-4.

    I'm 99% sure I would put more then 3 cars on a normal Neon but didn't expect to distance myself that much from an SRT-4 or at all. So I'm guessing either a funked SRT-4 or an SRT+N02?
