might be leaving the focus world

I might be getting a 2004 SRT4 Neon this week. It has 51,000 miles, it's clean, runs good, stock(other than K&N intake) and I found out my credit score is crazy good. I love my focus but this might be better for me in the long run since it's 4-door, and parts are a lot easier to find and much cheaper than for the SVTF. If they can get me a good deal, I'll do it. If not, then it's not a big deal because there's nothing wrong with my car!

Here's the link

Why not look for a ZX5 SVT? The one thing I really hate about SRT4's is the interior still looks so tacky.

Well we drive 'just a focus" so there isn't a difference it's just hot rodded. Another thing is I kinda want something that has some balls. Taurus SHO and SRT4N are rated about the same for acceleration, both low 14. And I love my SVT but can't have both, don't have the cash or else I would drive the srt daily and auto-x the svt. I won't get it if they don't offer me a good deal but if they do i will

The SRT-4 is a good platform to start with. Dodge used to offer upgrades for the SRT-4 but I am not sure if they still do that anymore. Or you can always go to www.modernperformance.com and they will be more than happy to help you out. They are a great bunch of guys that mainly deal with the Neon. Most of the stuff that I had on my Neon came from them. Great group of guys and they can set you up with what ever you need. Good luck to you on this.

I'm lucky to be friends with a guy with a modded srt4 and a guy with a boosted SXT who knows a lot

Good find. Those are low miles for a 2004. Mopar Performance used to offer stage upgrade kits(Stages 1,2 and 3)for the SRT-4 so it wouldn't hurt to look into that.
