Integra vs. Neon

I have a 1998 Dodge Neon 4-door 2.0 DOHC
Engine horsepower : 150-hp @ 6500RPM
Engine torque : 133 lb.-ft. @ 5500RPM
Curb weight 2,399 lbs.
5-Speed manual

vs.

1998 Acura Integra LS 4-door 1.8 VTEC
Engine horsepower 140-hp @ 6,300RPM
Engine torque 124 lb.-ft. @ 5,200RPM
Curb weight 2,727 lbs.
5-Speed manual

Clearly the Neon has a better power to weight ratio and in fact weighs a lot les (328 pounds) less than the integra, but yet everyone seems to talk crap on the neon. It might not be reliable, but its more powerful than the integra.
Point proven.

P.S.
How is this for a "turd"?

The great turd

Okay, enough is enough.

I love how you use the top engine from the Neon and the lowest engine from the Integra.

Let's have a real comparison, shall we?

Base Integra has 140 hp.

Base Neon has 133.

Next higher up Integra engine has 170 hp.

Next higher up Neon engine has 150.

The highest Integra engine has 195 hp.

And what does the highest Neon have? Still 150.

So exactly what do you think you have proven?

I think you're being a little under-generous for the Neon weight. Accordinto edmunds the 4-dr 98 Neon weighs 2507lbs, not 2399lbs.

Not to nitpick but the LS sedan is 2703lbs, not 2727lbs.

This means the Integra LS (bottom line 4dr Integra) weighs less than 200lbs more than your Neon.

LS Integra 5spd vs. (your) Neon auto 3spd.

Not forget the Integra handles better.

The 420a will crap out a lot quicker than a B18b2.

The Integra isnt as "Cute" looking as the Neon (cool points to the integra).

Bottom line - I'd put my money on the LS in a 1/4 or a course.


BTW - That ebay Neon is silly, who spends $25k+ on building up a Neon like THAT? Sure, great, wow, 550whp. I'm sure it still runs mid/high 11s at best being FWD, having no LSD, stock Neon gears (which im sure will last all of a few weeks with 550whp going through them) and suspension work that any ricer does to lower their car. Even with 275mm slicks he wont probably stop bad wheelspin and hook until late 2nd/early 3rd gear. His "Estimate" of 9.90 is obviously coming from a bad guess game. LEt's not forget that Neon is also unstreetable. Also, did I mention it's ass ugly?

My 300ZXTT cost less than $20k total (with the mods I have done) and it does (a tested) 12.4-12.6s. Not to mention the car handles better than a Z06 and you can actually drive it on the street with no problems.
