Re: Why this but no SRT-4 Neon? True the S2000 makes 250 hp, but it makes it at around 9000 rpm and peaks at about 150 ft-lbs. of max torque. My 96 Taurus makes more torque than that, seriously (175). I'm pretty sure I read somewhere the SRT makes about 230 ft-lbs of torque. That is one of the highest figures I have ever seen from a production 4 cyl. The Dodge 2.4l was designed to be economical, not for performance, which is the opposite in the Honda. Also, the Neon is a front wheel driver. Too much power and torque will cause torque steer without the implementation of costly control systems like in the Acura 3.2 CL Type S. The entire basis for the Neon SRT is low-cost performance and it just wouldn't be that with anything less or more.
