300 would be sweet! But i doubt for the price range and a stock 4-cylinder that we are going to get that, but to overcome the brick aerodynamics and weight, they may need 300 or more...that would be so sweet...:)

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.

I'm more worried about the 'upgradeability' rather then the stock factory horsepower.

If the car is 'near its limits' already, that would be a serious bummer. If it has the upgrade potential like the existing SRT-4, then it could come with 180hp stock and it'd still be a good bargain.
