Both of those have the CVT transmission...strong IOE contender if it turns more than a few laps at speed.
Has anyone successfully run a CVT in Lemons?
No and that's not the point. You're stupposed to throw the stock engine and CVT away, swap in an SRT4 setup, and crank the boost to infinity.
Rod Blagojevich says so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=920cFCwzwcM
Are there other cheaty options that will satisfy the Rod Blagojevich cheatonium index? I'm thinking keep it DSM/Mopar, because I think there are some possibly nearly bolt-in options that bring 215-240 hp to the table.
If your thought process is 4G63, 6G72, or 6G75, I don't think anyone is going to claim that falls outside the zone of Tacit Rod Blagojevich Approval, especially since the DSM stuff was assembled in Illinois (ironically at the DSM "Normal Assembly," which I learned today is going to be a Rivian Assembly line).
Also, today I actually learned the Caliber SRT4 engine is different from the Neon SRT4 engine and makes WAY more horsepower (280!).
TL;DR - Your options are myriad, just make Rod B. proud of your attempts to rig the system.
