Now, raise the price by $5k and add a solid AWD system and call it the upset of the industry.

I want one, bad.

i want one too
they are only a limited few in canada.
the next srt-4 should be 0.5 to 1 second quicker because of a lsd
you could even get factory stage 1 upgrade putting the car to 240hp from 230hp and an extra 20lb-ft for 260lb-ft

Boost the power beyond stock specs on a SRT4, and I'll bet you good money it won't last anywhere near that long.

AWD version

The question is.. how long will a little over worked turbo charged four banger like that last for before engine compenents start breaking down? I wonder if they offer the 100,000km warrenty...

They are coming out with an AWD version in 2006, i'm sure it will have slightly less horsepower.

I think they do, but as some Subaru STi owner's are finding out the hard way, the mechanics are very astute in determining if the clutch has been dumped hard. Once this is determined, a bill comes with the repair.
I've heard of several STi owner's already pissed to find that the dealerships aren't warrantying their clutches because of abuse. (And rightfully so).

Add 50+ Hp to these cars, and you can kiss your warranty goodbye. And I don't see why not.

These drivers all talk about their pocket rockets pushing 3-400 HP.
They don't talk about blowing their engine's after a summer of fun.

Stop talking out of your ass. Have you seen the acceleration times of a stock SRT-4? His car is modded too, so it will obviously keep up with an M3.
