I want to upgrade my 2008 Dodge Caliber. Currently has 1.8 w/5-speed. I want more power, can a 2.4 be installed with minimal mod? Also will the 5-speed bolt up to 2.4 or does trans need change also?

To the best of my knowledge all three of the "World Engines", 1.8, 2.0, and 2.4L, used the same transmissions so you should be able to bolt up the 5-speed trans to the 2.4L engine. However, you'll likely need to either reprogram or replace some of the car's various computers and other parts might be engine-specific. You could always check out Rockauto.com and see if there are any parts specific to certain displacement engines.
