Manufactured by Dodge from 2003-2005, based on the Neon/SX 2.0 body style. There was very little promoting done for the SRT-4 so in all fairness people have some very common misconceptions about it.
Dodge pulled the SRT-4 engine out of a PT Cruiser GT, the motor also saw production in the Mexican Stratus R/T. The PT-GT had a respectable 210 bhp as did the Stratus. Dodge tweaked the PCM and fuel system to bump the cars output to 215 bhp, but, Sport Compact car put a bone stock SRT-4 on a Dyno in 2003 and found 223 wheel horsepower. It is a well known fact that Dodge had underrated the vehicles power production to reduce insurance costs.
In 2004-2005 vehicles a Quaiffe LSD was added as well as larger fuel injectors. Which boosted the SRT-4's output to 230 bhp, another magazine test by Car and Driver showed that the 2004 SRT-4 had dynoed in at 233 wheel horsepower. Which makes the SRT-4 the fastest FWD production car in the world and the fastest Production car for under 20,000 dollars.
So please stop spamming garbage about this car, I challenge ANYONE who hates the SRT-4 to find a FASTER PRODUCTION CAR FOR UNDER 20,000 dollars. Instead of hating on a car, why not learn something about it. We owe Dodge for building the machine that they did for the price we paid. Nuff said, later. TURBOCHARGED FTW!
SRT-4's are a very underrated car, give them the respect they deserve. Remember if you ran into one jerk who has an SRT-4, it doesn't mean that all SRT-4 owners are jerks.
