2 for me. My first was a 99 4 door sport with DOHC. I bought the performance PCM, had a home made CAI, straight pipe. Loved that car. Top speed i ever had it was 130ish cause the speedo stoped at 120. The speed calc at neon.org said somwhere around 135. Now i have a 2004 srt-4 and love it even more.

Did you know the first gen Neon was designed to be an affordable roadrace car, built to the max limit of SCCA Club Racing (SSB and SSC) rules, as well as SCCA Autox (DS and ES) rules. The suspension was then detuned for the grocery getter lot (non-ACR) that would create the huge production numbers that allowed Chrysler to payout $1K per National race or Autox for a first in class, with payouts 3 deep in each class.
Did you know that the first gen Neon was so dominant in both road racing and autox that the manufacturers of other cars (like Honda and Mazda) convince the SCCA to allow the owners of those cars to add swaybars, exhaust systems, intakes, springs, and many other performance enhancing parts, just to keep up with the bonestock Neon?
Did you know that the base level Neon was as fast (usually faster) as the 'high performance' versions of the cars in it's class, stock?
Probably not, but I wouldn't expect you to have a clue anyway...
