    What car - and why?

    [​IMG]
    Price: $22,390 (ACR)
    Engine: 2.4L DOHC turbo I-4,230 hp, 250 lb-ft
    Drive: Front-wheel
    SRT is now bringing back the American Club Racing (ACR) package-dropped in 2003-and also offers the utterly insane Stage 3 turbo upgrade kit. We've driven SRT4s with both. For pure, white-heat, sweaty-palms excitement, Stage 3 pushes the SRT4's power peak to 310 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. (Or 355 hp and 365 lb-ft with 100-plus octane gas!) Try that in the snow on summer tires (as we did) for a rush that will make your short hairs uncurl. The kit will cost you $4199.

    or

    GTO. The SRT-4 is still a Neon.

    wow - ZERO votes for the ACR? :dunno:
     
  15. 355 hp Neon is WAY faster than the overweight 400 hp GTO.

    as an srt4 owner, there's no question you go with the gto. the acr just has a factory revised suspension/wheels/tires. no power over a "regular" srt4. get the gto.
