MPx dual exit exhaust for the Caliber SRT4 – pics of the newly revised version on Chazz’s CSRT4!

A Caliber SRT4 owner named Chazz sent in photos of his CSRT4 with our newly revised dual exit exhaust installed.

This exhaust was discontinued for some time, but due to demand from CSRT4 owners we brought it back. We took the opportunity to revise the exhaust with a hand rolled muffler for no pinch joints, made the muffler larger for a cleaner sound, and made the tips removeable for ease of shipping.

Here are pics of Chazz’s CSRT4. For more information on the MPx dual exit for the CSRT4- simply click on any of the photos to jump to our product page.

2.4 Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance intake manifold swap onto a 95-01 2.4 engine

Ok, so Cory from MP is building another 2.4 normally aspirated motor to swap into a first gen.

We are building new 2.4 10.5:1 compression pistons in a asymetrical design that will have minimal piston skirts to reduce drag and weight.

Also for fun, we plan on testing out different intake and exhaust manifolds. One of the manifolds we are going to test out, is the GEMA (Global engine manufacturing alliance between Chrysler, Mitsubishi, and Hyundai) intake manifold from a 2.4 from 2007-2013. This intake manifold is found on Patriots, Compasses, Avengers, Calibers and other Chryslers 2.0/2.4′s.

This intake manifold has plastic construction, nice smooth runners, large tb bore, and active intake manifold shutters to improve lower end power.

This manifold is HUGE, and it will be a challenge to make it fit in the first gen engine bay and clear the starter and fans.
But, it will be an interesting experiment. The first thing we’ll need to do, is make an adapter plate that bolts to the 2.4 NA 1995-2001 cylinder head. We’ll do this by taking an older intake manifold, chopping it off at the runners, and then custom cnc machining a plate to weld onto the oem intake manifold. Then the GEMA manifold will bolt to that.

Then, after that, the challenge will be to make the active shutters work, and test different rpm ranges to see when its best to have them open and closed. We imagine its best for closed shutters on lower end, and open at mid and top end.

Anyways, onto pictures.

This shows the backside and the shutters blocking the passage for lower end.

Nice smooth runners, tb opening on driver side, and large tb opening. Great for NA use!

Photo showing how you should be adjusting your BC coilovers

We get calls and emails often from customers that cant adjust their coilovers correctly or dont know how to do it.
Even though we have multiple videos, photos, and more in our blog showing how to adjust the BC’s, here is another photo.

In the photo you can see a spring perch and lock, as well as a lower lock ring.

You should NEVER have to adjust the spring perch for height adjustment.

To adjust height you should loosen the lower lock ring, then take the upper assembly and spin it clockwise or counterclockwise to make adjustments to the height. Please see our photo below.

Focus ST owners – reduce engine movement and wheel hopping with Torque Solution rear mount.

Focus ST Torque Solution rear mount

Focus ST owners – once you start driving aggresively and or increase power you’ll notice the engine moves a lot, and you might even get wheel hopping. This is not good, and it doesnt feel right either!

Replace your soft oem mount with the Torque Solution rear mount and you’ll improve things nicely. Its simple to install and is affordable.
