But what's the savings between a DAEWOO and a FOCUS? I don't think it's 15 grand. I dunno if I'd drop 15 g's for looks. Besides, the Neon is pretty nice to me.

difference in price between a focus and a kia isn't $15,000 though. I would actually save the $15,000 and buy the neon. Just think how much faster you could make it with that extra $15,000 left over. Fast enough to beat an STi and still have plenty money left.

Can you say RICE!!!


Plus the Neon motor is a POS and I don't think it can take much more boost. So you would need all of that 15 grand to beat an STi.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yeah, pay no attention to those 300hp Mopar upgrades, or the fact the engine's underrated from the factory.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The SRT-4 doesn't use a Neon motor. I don't know for sure what the STI runs in the 1/4, but I think I read somewhere like a 13.5 or something like that. One company that builds parts for the SRT-4 ran a 12.9 with under $500 in parts and a set of slicks. Then you'd just have to figure out what to do with the other $14,500

[Edited for spelling]
