As far as I know, the Vibe has either the regular i-4 putting out 130 hp. Or 180 hp from the stronger engine. The stronger one i know for sure is a Celica engine (the GT-*). It would not surprise me if the base engine is the Celica GT engine. If that is the case, the aftermarket community is enourmous for those engines.

Myself being a big Toyota person, yes, the base motor in the Vibe/Matrix is indeed the Celica GT motor.
