here are the specs on the neoon SRT-4:

2,429 cc 2.4 liters in-line 4 front engine with 87.5 mm bore, 101 mm stroke, 8.1 compression ratio, double overhead cam and four valves per cylinder EDV

as far as how much work. however much it would cost to duplicate the turbocharged cobalt ss should suffice

I test drove one and they do have a nice bit of power but the looks are hidious. They are still a neon IMO....

I say buy the SS/TC Cobalt and mod from there. The T/C Balt is a much better platform and they look nicer!!!

skip the skittle(what I call them). Stock they suck, I test drove one with under 30K mi's, all it had was coilovers, I wanted to get back into my SS about 10 seconds after starting the test drive. They have huge potential but are still cheap as hell, exterior is alright looking but that interior is hideous. After all its a reg. neon on steroids, quicker or so I am told, felt slow to me

My Gone But Not Forgotten Cobalt(s) Show off

2015 Fiat 500 Abarth | 2016 International Durastar

I think the most rediculous thing about them is the power windows in the front but they have manual windows in the rear???? Thats just plain stupid.

I wouldnt buy one though. They are made fun of royally around my town. They are overrated and everyone that has one thinks they are drivin a porche or some high end exotic car when in real life it is still a neon...

You can polish a turd all day long but after all the polishing and bragging.... its still a turd!!!
