if that engine can take 300hp of forced induction wonder from mopar, i think the overall durability isn't really under question, and it's a simple matter of maintenance

o know we say neon is an ugly car, but so is the Subaru...neon should be able to take more power since engine has bigger displacement...don't know about reliability cause never own a domestic...

the vid is running choppy for you? its a pretty smooth high quality vid.. hella clear.. im only on a 800mhz athlon using win xp.. wit the latest crappy wmp 9..

but yea.. can't wait to start seeing some highly modded ones.. car has a lot of potential.. but sheesh maintenance and reliability has been a big excuse to bash the car.. its a brand new car.. and whatever history this car and their manfuctuarer had in the past.. maybe they worked all that out.. but only time will tell..

Both the neon and stock WRXs (not the STi) are ugly IMO. So if I you were just performance minded, I think anyone would choose the Neon. That sucker (Neon) just took a walk in the park, even at least 3 (or 4?) people in the car. Damn that thing was fast.

Actually the neon had a MBC on it running 15psi which spiked to 16psi for a second.

The DSM had a MBC as well and no exhaust, it was stock other then the MBC.

Ive read this post on like 5 other forums already :) the DSM had 2 people in it including driver, the neon had 4 including one rather larger passenger.

the neon is no joke :)
