That's blasphemy! Get out Get out now! Just kidding ya it's possible but you could just buy a faster car for cheaper then the custom work it would take not counting the electronic night mare. The 2.4L is a nice motor buy the GM super charger if you want more power. Or build a engine. It would be easier to swap in a W41 motor modded slightly and a turbo for a boat load cheaper.

Short answer: No.

Long answer: anythings possible if you have enough time and money. (although it's easier to buy a non SRT-4 Neon, and swap in an SRT-4 motor. Sleeper and cheap insurance

No. Just no. You'd be getting rid of a reliable engine and installing an unreliable one. Your Quad-4 will outrun an SRT-4 solely because the Quad-4 will stay running. It's not hard to outrun a car that's being pushed

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
