    Man you should get a SRT-4 instead!! Sounds like you're the type of ppl that only like straight line performance and think that 30k car can own Ferraris/Lambo is cool?? Correct? Who wants a Neon neway?? And dun think that SRT-4 with S2 can beat the Ferraris or even Lambo

    No way....only in those SRT-4 kids dream

    Two of my friends have srt-4s and they're pretty damn quick. They're great bang for the buck cars. They don't look too bad withhout the spoiler. But both of my friends wanted a STI but couldn't afford one. One of my friends is shooting the hell out of his srt-4. Its quick as ****. My other friend has a mopar stage one and he gets high 13s with a trap a little over 100mph. I haven't raced him yet but I'm sure from a roll it'll be close.

    i was pretty sure no one had the mopar stage 3, as it isnt out yet. my buddy ordered the stage 2 and it still hasnt arived yet. i thought you were refering to the AGP kit that sells for $3600 and uses the T3-T4. that goes 11.9 with proper suspension/tires id guess. i doubt it but maybe the mopar stage 3 will do as well, i know it uses a large 16g, the evo 6 turbo, thats all. and i dont think guys are hitting mid 12's on stage 2. although i wouldnt mind seeing it, because yes, for 20k its one hell of a....deal.

    Again this is a very subjective topic.

    You wanna go in straight line fast=SRT4
    You wanna do everything else=STI

    Game over

    I dont want to turn this into another flame war, but really you guys make it seem like the srt-4 cant even go through a turn. The handling is really pretty good considering its front wheel drive. I forget what magazine, but they ran it with some ferraris and other exotics. Clearly it got smoked by the ferraris but it was very close to the Evo's time. Granted if I had 30 grand I would have bought an STi but an srt-4 can be made to do turns.

    Sorry to hijack ...

    But Kyong Yun, I like your silver\silver STI! I'm in Cola also. You must be the only STI in this city, besides the wrb sti that has been sitting at Hancock Subaru forever. Have you seen any other STI's around here? I might go for an 05 STI or GT. Haven't decided yet. I'll be looking for you. I'm in a silver '02.

    Only a few SRT-4 owners from SRTforums.com have been able to cut a 12.9 w/ Stage 2 & Drag Radials. The rest are either getting low-mid 13's. (Not including some people who have found S2 to be no different than stock, LoL)

    According to Mopar, The Stage 3 is cutting the SRT-4 test cars consistant 12.8's on street tires. Possible low 12's on DR's or Slicks. Whether that's on Race Gas or not, I'm not sure. But even so, a simple MBC to up the boost a bit more could result in some killer times.

    The Evo VI T.M.E.'s have made upwards of 400 whp on that turbo (Stage 3), so we'll see what happens when the kit will (hopefully) be in next month.

    I don't know if this is true, but the props should not go to Dodge for the SRT-4 powerplant. I've been told from several sorces that the motor was the orginal prototype Mini cooper S motor. But they decided to cut it just before production and went with the 1.6 it now has. Just wanted to throw this out there. So all the props for reaserch and development should go to BMW (Mini devision)

    Please don't flame if i'm incorrect, this is just what I have been told from some people I know who works behind the scens of BMW.
