SRT's are a POS. Don't let him do it. Get an 01 GTS and Turbo it.

i agree witht the neon thing, it is still a neon under the modified body..oh and if he has to trade the celica, make sure he gets a nice 300zx TT smile I have been in two, one stock TT and another 400+hp TT that my friend had, very nice condition, it was awesome

Its $22K. The power you get for that price is unbelievable. But its wrapped in such an fugly package. Not only a 4-dr but a Neon at that!

It all depends what your friend really wants, if he wants gobs of power, then get the SRT-4, but if he wants something that looks good, stylish and will hold its value 10x more then the SRT-4, then get the GTS!

all i know is in a car group i hang with on fridays we have some fast cars.. the fastest is a 12.9 second GTI 1.8T and then we got a bunch of other GTI's running around, but we have this one SRT-4 and man that thing moves... this one muscle car tried to show off around us fucked up and started to run, the SRT guy got in his car ran off after him and then we hear like 2 minutes later 2 cars screaching off a huge blow off and see the SRT wooping the shit out of this old 68 camero... I have respect for their speed.. just wish they looked different

I must say I hated the SRT-4 once as well, but I've been charged with the care of my brothers while he is in Iraq. That bitch is fast!! Since I get to drive it once a week it has grown on me, the small things he did to it before he left make it easier on the eyes so that has something to do with it I'm sure.

Only thing I don't like are the Viper seats, murder on your backside and no wiggle room with those huge side bolsters.

I honestly don't know why you guys hate the SRT-4? I would take one over my GT anyday. A turbo GT won't beat a STOCK SRT-4. A turbo GTS would do better than a GT, but still that is against a STOCK SRT-4. A fully built SRT-4 would destroy a fully built Celica. I'm not dissin the Celica at all (I bought one so why would I?), but I still do not understand why you hate it.

Everyone always says the SRT-4 is still a Neon, then that would also mean an Evo is still a Lancer and a STi is still an WRX...

I think the SRT-4 is an amazing car and I'm happy Dodge finally put something out that was great (other than the Viper of course)...

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

Ok, so my opinion about the srt-4...its a sweet car. I like it and I would trade my gts for 1 if i could...of course, my gts is sittin at the house with a blown motor, so who wouldnt make that trade? I do have to agree, i wish the style looked more apealing, and the suspension could be made better, but as for the car in whole, its nice. And for runnin an 13.9-14.1 stock, you cant beat the under $20G price tag. BUT, the celica has one of the most important things to consider if you are buying a car...its value.Toyotas hold their value for so long, its pathetic. I mean, c'mon, i have my 93 celi and the retail on that is $4690.00...176K miles and runnin strong.knock on wood. smile
Its so easy to make the dodge run close to low 13's with just mopar stg.1 and spring mod. My friend has that, runs 13.4 at like 104 all day long.and thats on street tires. Im sure he could be 13 flat with drags. But thats just my opinion. I just think it would be funny to see a pt cruiser with the mopar stg.3...haha so funny, that just looks like an oversized hurst.

Almost a mute point, my bro says 2005 is the last year for the SRT4. I would never by a used one you can bet any used one has been run hard and put away wet.

You took the words right out of my mouth, seriously. People on this site got their heads so far up their asses. The SRT-4 is an awesome car, and I would take one over my GT or GTS ANYDAY. As a matter of fact, I'm selling my GT right now to buy an SRT-4.

And personally I think the car looks awesome. Looks very agressive and it definitely turns heads (my cousin owns one). My cousins car already has 48k miles on it and there has yet to be a single problem (not that there shouldnt be, im just saying). The fact that you guys just use the excuse "It's still a neon" is pathetic.
