This thing is a rocket. Everyone I have
taken for a test drive says the same
thing. "Oh my god!". I have teken a
couple Corvette owners and Mustang
owners. They all very impressed with
the acceration. This car is the best
bang for the buck value around in my
opinion. While the Viper style seats
are tight, They are comfortable. I
think the interier is just as good as
the imports, dispite all the critics
comments. I would recomend this car to
anyone who is looking for a fun vehicle.
I am a previous 01 Neon R/T owner and
decided to take the whole neon
onwership to a new level. Loved my
R/T and got use to a neons
quirks/problems. From mile one on my
SRT I noticed a dramatic increase in
handling ability and most of all
POWER. Holy Horses Batman!!!! this
car has POWER... Been able to walk
away from WRX's, STANG GT's, and new
ZZZZ's. And SRT can do this factory
stock. Can't wait to add stage 3
(300hp/320TQ at wheels) and mess with
VET's and Cobra's. Ought to give them
a good run.
Sound of Exhaust...Sound of
Exhaust...Also sound of Engine and
turbo is pretty sweet. NO TURBO
Handling could be a bit better, but is
awsome when compared to other neons.
Wider stock tires. A selection of rim
styles. Cruise Control...better gas
This car's speed scares the crap out of
me. Great performance/acceleration and
supurb handling as well as braking.
The stock 230 horses under the hood
will melt the plastic off the front
bumber in this great compact. The
acceleration is as good if not better
than new stock Mustang Mach 1's, Nissan
Z's and the comparable WRX. The anti-
lock brakes will stop the car in no
time. This thing is treasure found in
a chest. The best investment I have
ever bought! Althought I don't suggest
tyring 150 mph on the freeway, this car
is capable of it!
Turbo boost guage, viper style seats,
good stock sound system and reversed
guages. Great exterior; front and rear
bumpers, side skirts, rims and rear
spoiler for a that aftermarket look
straight from the facory. And of
corse, the turbocharger.
I've make K&N cold intake mod's that
seriouly improved flow to the turbo.
Plans include Mopar statge 2 upgrade
and possibly stage 3 when released. A
nice compliment to the yellow paint
would be chrome 18's.
