can you give us any info on mopar stuff for the srt-4 caliber? I know you probably cant but its worth asking. Is there stuff already in testing/development for the new srt-4?

All we can disclose at this point is Mopar is hard at work on the Caliber. The above 4 part #'s are available, and more are to be released shortly.

If there are specific parts you'd (Caliber Forums) recommend, please feel free to shout them out.

Thanks!

Dodge now has some new accesories available when you build one on their website. Looks to be new today or maybe I missed it. Looks like mopar accesories, not sure. choose the D package and you will see the accessories option on the last screen, just before the summary.

well, I dont know if this quite fits into the mopar product line, but I know alot of people really dont like the headligts on the Caliber, so something along the lines of the morette headlights or someother kind of projector headligts or something, I think they would fly off the shelves. Other then that , I think staged turbo upgrades and suspension and exhaust are the main things, just like the 1st srt-4's parts. I think mopar should offer a Mopar intercooler upgrade, big nice flowing IC with the blue mopar insignia on it. Its crazy not to offer one, since thats one of the main things you always want to upgrade on an intercooled car. Maybe a big brake kit with nice looking calipers to shine thru those big 19" wheels, slotted or drilled rotors, easy to install kit. :cool:

yeah; the rallye style headlights would work great.. so long as they weren't CF [kinda looks cheesy with the way the caliber parts go together. Also, i'd like to get the rallye lighted grille plz! :D

I third the idea of a different style headlight. Either "BMW Style Halo projector" even just HID's, or the ones that were showed on the Rallye. Like suzq044 said, body color NOT carbon fiber. How about even thinner lights like on that "SRT-6 Chop" that is floating around here. Even an upgraded, "better looking" grille insert. I think those two items would "fly off the shelves"

It seems like most of the things are are asking for besides the headlights are things that would be for the srt-4. I think what is being asked is what parts should come out for the regular calibers. Does anyone know how much HP/TQ the CVT can take? If it can't take to much more then that will rule out a turbo option for the non srt-4s.

well i suppose at the factory they would make a trans with atleast some tollerance for more power. Id say look for it to hold about 225 to 250.

That seems interesting. I also add more support for an kind of forced induction.

Super Charger would be coo!;)
I just like the sound of a supercharger more than a turbo. I think both options would be very viable and complimentary to the caliber. Both options would work very well with the CVT. Supercharger for those of us that want lower end power without having to rev the engine up too much, and the turbo for those of us that like watching the RPM sit steady at 6000rpm while the turbo spins happily way producing some rediculious amount of power. I honestly believe that from a pure power standpoint, a CVT is the BEST pairing for a turbo. Why would't you want the engine to sit at it's optimal power band all the freaking time. :D
