Tennessee Caliber SRT4

September 6, 2010

I must admit being a big fan of the 1st generation Neons and their bright green ACR track ready package all the way through the final years of the Neon in its  SRT4 ACR package with the Orange Blast paint!  I was disappointed to find out that Dodge was replacing it with something else.  The Dodge Caliber came on the scene at first quiet, but shortly after Dodge was going hard with their Street Race Technology program.  Which I personally think started a trend with car makers, especially the American manufacturers to make fast high performance sport compacts.  They created an SRT4 version of the Caliber for a 2 year run, which makes this vehicle a collectors item for Dodge lovers.  Making almost 300hp in stock form pulls the Caliber Srt4 past many cars in its class.

This Caliber owned by Dakota, makes 411hp that roasts the front wheels on command, and punishes all six gears.  Stock these cars have an obvious torque steer issues.  It has been slightly corrected with traction bars, BC racing coils, and LSD modifications.  Along with a long list of quality performance oriented modifications…

Words from the owner: Dakota Mercer

I would like to thank everyone for taking a look at the car. It’s a task to tastefully modify a Caliber, and I hope I have succeeded! It’s not every day you see a Caliber SRT, and I hope I have done this car justice! I would like to thank Kevin Maxwell for all the wrench time and tuning he put into the car. I would also like to thank everyone over at www.calibersrt4.netfor making a good internet community for these cars, and most of all, thank all of you!
