    I am still impressed with the motor in these cars. It is by far my favorite motor in any car I have ever owned. Huge amounts of torque are available at very low RPM's. It reminds me a lot of my 350ci motor in my 69' Firebird. The stock turbo spools around 2200rpms with virtually no lag in any gear. The transmission seems to be rather bullet proof as well. Its only weaknesses are the Neon body and the FWD application. I would love to put one of these motors in something RWD or AWD and a different body style. It would make for a very respectable build up.

    ok we have an actual track down here in orange county neons aint doin s#!t down here !

    i would say some dealers could install the stage 3 and sell it as new. but its not from dodge that way. dealer installed options (also means no warranty). also a stage 3 (no offense) would have gottin away alot faster then that. 350 on pump and 375whp on 100oct with no tuning of adjusting needed.

    The next srt-4 will be fwd=sucky. And "it will still be a caliber!" I am sorry, but I would rather drive my slower wrx all day then the caliber srt-4 even if it would smoke me. The level of finish in the subie is waaaaay above the chevy. and wow......rlly old thread

    dodge makes the caliber and chevy makes the cobalt which one is it? either way you look at, which mostly be from the rear. it'll be faster then the current srt4 and still cost less then everyother car with the same numbers. i for one think its ugly to tall and over weight. but i'll be happy to yank some parts off of it later on.

    my bad, i forgot its dodge who makes the neon/caliber. Nevertheless, the subie has way more character than a numb, domestic, hopped up econobox. Not that it wont be fast...

    the new 2.4L in the Calibur is not the same one that's found in the Neon SRT-4. the Calibur SRT-4 engine will remain 2.4L but will be all aluminum and possibly open deck. at the most, semi-closed deck, but i don't think it's fully sleeved like the Neon SRT-4. also, the Neon SRT-4 had an iron block, not aluminum.

    this is the new 2.4L engine that was co-developed by Chrysler, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi. in other words, the Calibur SRT-4 won't be the mammoth monster of modifications that the Neon SRT-4 was.

    i thought over and over about doing a powertrain swap from the SRT-4 but a boxer engine has more personality, and it's not worth the cost of finding a RWD chassis that will fit the powertrain, turning the transmission backwards and doing all sorts of supporting mods, etc.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.

    which end of town do you pick up rt7 on. not to familier with that area. usually we do the down and back way out elkon newark road then "cruise" back towards the 95 overpass.
