300 hp is doable with 2.4 liters, but it's gonna require variable valve timing for sure and possibly direct injection. That'll bust that $23K limit right now. Also, anything with that kind of hp must have AWD. All the parts are there in the Daimler/Chrysler/Mitsubishi bin. The problem exists with Mitsu. Do they want a vehicle that will be a direct competitor of their EVO? I think that D/C could convince them that continued cooperation in shared engineering would be of benefit to both of them. The Calibre will attract a different audience than the EVO, a less "hard-core" group, who will be attracted to the car by its five door utility, rather than the balls-out, bulging fender macho projected by the EVO. I think they'd go for it, myself. If they did, a 300 hp SRT-4 Calibre would do a lot for cooking version Calibre sales. I'm convinced of that.
