Nissan is not god. There is always someone faster, no matter what you drive.

Why don't you give it a go?

People always say that neon's are pieces, and in most respects they are always breaking, but there is shit they can do that will make their cars a force to be reconed with.

The first gen R/T neons are decent cars (DOHC 2.0L 150HP). I got waxed by one that had I/H/E (Not 100% about the "H". Then they can do the 2.4L engine swap. I'm not sure about the exact specs of the 2.4L powerplant, but I know it's damn close to th specs of the QR25DE.

Anything else should not be a problem. If he has a second gen R/T don't be intimidated. For some reason or another Dodge crapped these up. They have dual magnaflow exhaust which probably robbs more power then it frees up. Then they took out the DOHC 2.0L 150HP engine and put in the SOHC 2.0L 132HP engine (Same as all other neons).

On a sice note a modded 5 speed SOHC 2.0L could give you a pretty good run for your money.

I'm not sure what the cost of a 2.4 engine is, but most people do the swap themselves.

My brother has a 96 neon (SOHC 2.0L 132HP). Right not it's an auto, but he's planning on doing a 5 speed swap sometime this summer. With his mods (I/E) he should be able to keep up with my stock SE if not pull on me a little.

There is a neon at the track from time to time that runs exactly the same times as I do. Like almost down to the thousandth at times. Its odd sometimes to watch.

If both cars are pretty much stock, I think he will be quicker. I have driven Neons before and I used to have a 93 XE. I know it does not make me an expert by any means but thats JMO.

It depends on the tranny the neon has. There is an auto 3.44 (or something like that) that is slow as shit (3 speed). Then there is a 3.5 or 3.45 tranny and those are quicker.

If it's an SOHC stick then you'll be in for a race. If you're both autos who knows. But if it's a DOHC (Neon R/T) be prepared to eat some dust.

EDIT: IMO, if someone is talking shit about your car you can't show up and race him in someone elses car (Particularily your moms)!
