Without a doubt any Stealth model will beat any Neon but the SRT4. V4's are the most unblanaced engine, and defiently the least powerful. In my sisters neon the tires wont even squeel unless your going around a turn goin like 30mph.

i think the most powerful first gen neon have 150 hp, but in 2005 is when they came out with srt4 which had somewhere around 210-220 hp

The SRT-4's fastest stock times is 13.9-14.1 so 12 seconds is a bit of a leap

Stock times for a 3000GT VR4 is 14 seconds flat.....so do not say that an SRT-4 would beat one.....considering it has AWD and it's also turbo'd.....the VR4 or Stealth RT/TT are more then capable of holding their own against the SRT-4, not to mention are worth more and more desired.

As for the original question...

A stock Dodge Stealth or 3000GT 3.0L V6 would beat any generation Neon in the 1/4 mile, excluding the SRT-4 of course.

I would say chances are it would be a closer race, and depending on if it was an auto V6 vs. a 4cyl manual.....it might be a driver's race

A first gen neon is a sohc engine. The shadow would easily beat it. I have a 3.0 iroc daytona...punched next to a 24v stealth and it was a pretty even race. My 3.0 isnt stock but thats besides the point. Is the stealth a sohc engine? Either way the stealth should win. Oh and i just got back from gateway...most srt4s with mods are running high 13s...so a stock one even though they say can run 13.9 is more likely to be a 14 sec car...unless you drive GOOD.

Stealths like their 3000gt siblings had 3 engine offerings.
160hp SOHC
220hp DOHC
320hp DOHC-TT
