First off let me say these cars have pull. It is not AWD which is a disadvantage in the 1/4 mile but on the freeway you better have some serious upgrades if you think you can take one from a roll. Anyway bumped into a SRT-4 owner at a local Krispy Kreme and asked if he wanted to run. He was down and I asked him if he had any mods and he said all he had was a boost controller. I have downpipe, upipe Hiflow cat, and intake. I am thinking I am going to spank this guy. I Mean it is a neon. Anyway we get on the freeway and start from a second gear roll at 40mph and he pulls on me hard. At this time I found a new found respect for neons at least SRT4's. We went again from stop and a it was still close because he has more top end than I will ever be able to squeeze out of the stock turbo. I got a good launch and pulled away from him in 1st and 2nd and he starts pulling back in 3rd. I shut it down at around 100mph not sure I was part of the way through 4th figuring that was about a 1/4 mile. He was at least at my front passenger door at this time. I dont know exactly how much boost he was runnin but SRT4's are definitly worthy competitors. Not like POS mustangs.
Needless to say I am going to start saving for my 20G as of tonight.
