The Dart is basically a Fiat in Dodge clothing, lol. as in Fix it again Tony. Well the 1.4 turbo engine is. The 2.0 and 2.4 is Mopar. The 2.0 has 2 cams, intake and exhaust. The 1.4 and 2.4 has Multiair. Here is a video to explain that.
The 6-speed auto is Hyundai, The dual dry clutch 6 speed, and 6 speed manual are Fiat trannys. The design of the Body is Alfa Romeo.
Some info from Allpar.
And to answer the question about Neons, Yes I like them, I also Like PT Cruisers, I have an 05 PT GT Turbo. Same engine as the SRT4, just detuned a little, because of the Auto trans. Neon are fun to hop up and cheap. 2.4 with rt 5spd, maybe some forged pistons and maybe a little squirt of NO2. fun times.
