I don't see him taking it the track or trying to pick fights at the lights, just fun driving and maybe giving it a little goose on the highway now and then.
Well, having owned/own 2 SRT4's I can tell you that stock they are not a bad daily driver, but, remember it's a Neon.... the only thing in the interior that is nice is the seats and what the driver touches, everything else remains a low rent Neon interior. I'll take pics of my interior if needed, but, good luck finding a SRT4, they aren't making them anymore and I had to drive 70+ miles to get my white one (rarest SRT produced).
Performance wise, the SRT4 will run upper 13's stock all day long, get 25+mpg in the city, and beat a STI or Evo on the top end. With less than $2000 in mods you'll be running mid-upper 12's and stomp the piss out of both of them....
I purchased my SRT4 with a sunroof, Livin' Loud sound system, and Viper inspired seats for $20k, good luck finding one.
