SRT-4 vs. SS Supercharged



Which one would you rather have? The Cobalt SS is slightly weaker (205 hp) but it looks nicer (imo) and has a better interior. Nice touches (like the dark-chrome 18" wheels) A guy at a dealership was saying how you can get 270 hp with not too much work.

Both are cheap North American POS.....give it time and watch how many of them blow up.

But to keep on topic....SRT-4....only because the engine has been in production longer in South America in the Stratus. But lets just see when that engine starts to rack up the milage I bet they will blow like crazy. And as for the 2.2L Ecotech.....could have potential but it still remains unproven in my eyes.

yeah, i can see where your concern might be coming from. But the Ecotec engines have been under forced induction in Saab's 9-3 for example, and I dont think theres any problem.

honestly, I like srt-4 much better. There is just something about that srt-4.
you could totally tell just by a glance its not normal neon, looks different feels different. I could feel the presence when its around.
