    Pretty impressive...is that stock its running on the Dyno?

    Those would be UNDERESTIMATED numbers then wouldn't they?

    I still would like to see a head to head with an MS3...

    ...new SRT-4 is still ugly as sin though

    Mazdaspeed3s usually dyno between 240-260hp and 265-275tq to the wheels and are very similar to the Caliber in weight.

    I will let you know what I put out when I get dynoed next week.

    I just cant get excited about FWD vehicle with that much power. They're basically useless on anything but a dry road, with a tire. Wet roads? Forget it.
    Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,"If I live, I will kill you. If i die, you are forgiven. " such is the rule of Honor.

    Most of the reviews i have read liked the power but noted that it had a lot less of the track prowess that its predecessor had. power is good and all but i like ability to turn.
    dont have a wrx.......yet

    Pretty quick. They are running high 13's/low 14's @ 102/103 which is damn impressive.
    It is crazy that those thing will be hitting 110mph traps with just bolt on's and ecu tuning.

    I still think the MS3 is the king of affordable FWD though. It might be a tad slower, but it brakes and handles MUCH better, and has a nicer interior and not as much torque steer. It's just a better all around car.

    +1 Donnie...

    Thats exactly why I like the MS3 better...it just freakin looks better on the outside IMO as well. The Caliber is just an awkward looking thing, like a PT Cruiser with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome...

    i have to agree....the MS3 is the better choice. looks better, sounds better, much more realistic of a car....how long do you think the new srt-4 will run before it starts breaking down lol? a boosted american 4 banger pushin that much stock....-and i'd rather like to think that the caliber srt-4 looks like the dwarf child of an 07 durango....ew
