    I call crap on that!

    I had a 1995 SOHC Plymouth Neon (same as Dodge as we all know) and I could only muster about 110 mph (seemed to be aerodynamically challenged at that point)

    Come on, you have a 2.0 liter SOHC with 130 BHP and you're driving 125 MPH? That's crap.

    First, who said I had the SOHC? I had a DOHC rated at 150hp from the factory. Second, who said the car was stock?

    I will say that THIS site is a great resource for NEON lovers... Why don't we have something as informative and as well-laid out as this?

    http://www.neons.org/

    It's great!

    The site as a whole is good, but the forums SUCK! There are way TOO MANY "know-it-alls" on those forums. God forbid you ask a question! I used to post there, but I got tired of the little jealous kids in their neons. My last thread I started over there was about a year ago when I installed my EBC in my SRT-4. I got responses like "post pics when you blow the engine", "how much do want when you blow your engine" and all kinds of ignorant sh*t like that. I pretty much exploded and was warned by a mod, but I told him not to worry because you won't ever see there again.

    Agreed. I never ventured into the Forums because of the general "impression" most Neon drivers give me in OTHER forums...

    The resources for TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) is GREAT! There must be a place where we can collect all this stuff in a "neat" pile for WRXers. I long for such a resource.

    "A WRX Library" of sorts...

    Talk to the adminstrator of this forum. IMO, this is a great form. All TSB's can be found here: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/

    Some one would just have to have the responsibility of checking periodically for updates. You can lead the effort!!
