problem with the srt4 is modding them is a bitch...lol
friend here has one, so far he's popped 3 head gaskets. He's about to put it back to stock and call it a day.
Kinda like he said when he popped one running me. "you can't win if ya keep breaking".
Ok, i just found out he put it back stock and gave the turbo'd enonobox the boot. He's driving a solstice gtp (or is it gtx?) now.

last time i checked the #1 prob with srt-4's was the ehad gasket. and yes they are good for 500 hp beause my friend dan has one and he was one of the first 4 to hit 10 secs in the 1/4 but his dropped over 20g into the car after he bought it. so whats the point in spending 40g on a car when u could just buy a faster one for less
