I don't care much about the neons cause i burn one about each week... you can do the same if your clutch is where your mouth IS...Some neons a pretty quick. They can put out 130hp and don't weigh all that much. Your LX only puts out 110, but has excellent gearing for acceleration. But I say the only real power Dodge ever had was the 440 hemi, and you'll never see one of those in a neon. But give it a try, I think its a good match-up.
