    Is that what they're rated at or are those numbers from a dyno?

    I respect em for what they are but thats it.Style to me is everything.

    We're still talking about a turbo'ed neon vs a naturally aspirated mustang. Big deal. What happens when you throw a supercharger or turbo at a mustang? 400-500 horsepower, no problem. So it comes that way from the factory, big deal. It's still a neon, and they still had to throw a turbo on it to make it as fast as a stock mustang.

    I have a friend that just thew a $2500 H22 motor into a Prelude, $600 skunk cams, and countless other fart can parts and are excited because they think they are finally going to get into the 14's. Ricers are incredible. They all get excited when they spend $5000 and can finally hang with a stock mustang.

    :bs:

    Get get a power adder or a 331 and don't sweat it.

    Besides, unlike a lot of the other imports, that neon is gonna start falling apart at about 70,000 miles. most of the people there don't even know as much as I do (which ain't much, seeing as how i'm a computer programmer) and think their car is gonna keep going faster as they pay other people to put on mods. by the way, anyone got a need for a twin turbo JY setup? I THINK I DO!

    hell...im talking s$%^ about a neon and i own one.
    Go figure.
    But the wife already has said i can get another stang
    once we pay off her S#$$ box.
    I think ill get an 04 since everybody will want an 05.
    Prices should be good for them once the 05s are out.
    That would make mustang#9
