here are the specs on the neoon SRT-4:



Turbo compressor

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

Premium unleaded fuel 91

Fuel economy EPA highway (mpg): 30 and EPA city (mpg): 22

12.4 gallon main premium unleaded fuel tank

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

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!!!

Not hard to beat the average owner, most cannot get that 13.8 rating. There was one guy who had a few things done to his at the track and could not get below 14.5. Driver is the factor peeps, car can be proven to run 10 flat all day but its all on the driver.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks these skittles are pathetic. No matter how fast they are, they still look like something my grandma would drive. Actually, she probably even has better taste than that.
