Didn't realize that. Basically they are rated at 205 from the factory but based on dyno #'s they are more like 230-235 crank HP.

That seems to be a recurring theme with the new FI sport compacts. My fiance's SRT4, which is rated at 230, made 223 RWHP completely stock. She added a CAI and made 233 at the wheels.

i think ya mean FWHP :thumbsup:

and yes Dodge did severly underrate the SRT-s HP. chevy has done the same thing, but its still not enough to catch the SRT, i hate to say it but its still too little too late for GM in the sport compact world.

and If they had put as much company support towards the F-body they never would have stopped making it and the LS-1 guys would probably have a facotry turbo kit or something equally as nice. but Gm decided to not support their mid level sports car and it cost them the entire market.

Speedvision did a dyno it put down 196 fwhp. That is short of srt and impreza but thats somewhat good bang for the buck.
A WRX will put down a comparable number on an AWD dyno, but keep in mind that's through the power-sapping AWD system also.

i think if your set on buying a new car then itd be good but if not you could buy a gtp and spend the money you save modding it and get it into the 12's for aroiund the same price

thats ur opinion, personally it seems like the same old cavaqueer with a new look/name. But if your lookin at it from just a financial view it makes more sense to get a used car and mod it so you can get better performance for the same price
