Default Dodge Neon....

so i was driving down a rather main street in my area yesterday, and as im driving, i see this red dodge neon 2.0L, regular occurence right? well what made this one different, is the guy driving it stuck a HEMI sticker off of a newer ram on the trunk of the car. why? what is the point in faking the engine size? we all know a hemi wouldnt fit into a damn neon anyway. why would he even try to pull that off? i would like to see that thing go against a real hemi. i bet he would take that stupid sticker off after that. nobody in their right mind is gunna fall for it, hes just making himself look like a retard (not saying that all neon drivers are like this, but this guy makes you all look bad =P).

the neon 2.0L uses a very rough interpretation of the hemi cylinder head...lots of neon owners refer to their motor as a hemi or "semi hemi".

but just because it uses a very rough interpretation of the hemi cylinder head doesnt mean that it IS a hemi. its just an interpretation, not the actual thing

yeah.. and then you have to find a transaxle that could withstand the power of the hemi, if you wanted to keep it FWD, but RWD, wayyyy too much work if you ask me...

to each his own... i saw a little geo metro today with a turbo sticker on it.... and no it didn't have a turbo... to each his own, however i think it would be cool if someone put a 6.1 hemi into a neon and made it RWD
