i had an srt4... it was ok. i much prefer the svt, even stock. they didnt put enough time designing them and making them different from the stock neon. mine was running 20lb and wheel hopped like crazy. my (at the time) 220whp focus was much faster. but the stock turbo on the srt4 is microscopic. my sti on 17lb is a different story.

Dude you have to be kidding me, no way a 220whp focus is faster then a 20psi (assuming stock turbo, which if running well should be around 290whp) srt.

Srt-4 are one of the best bangs for your buck in the turbo 4 cylinder world.

Your srt must of been a POS.

i would take an evo or sti of the srt-4 any day...... they have been having huge problems on hte srt-4. yeah hook up is def a prob.... if he was hooking up good he may have ran high 12s.... good luck on the project man.... this thread is subscribed for updates on what you run (waiting patiently on videos of race with said srt4...)
