It took me a disappointingly long time to realize you meant mpg. I was thinking 30s to 60 isn't quick, and high 30mph isn't freeway speed.

 

I need a lot more sleep.

Feel free to make offers. Worst I can say is no

It actually would be. 

The 2.4 swap has a ton of torque, and the trans is matched VERY nicely with it. And neons are a hoot. I only sold this one to brap to fund the acr build and a daily. It was an amazing car, andis actually my target with my acr.
