Because that would be VERY expensive to do on this platform. Adding power would be much easier and cheaper. Keep in mind they are moving to the lighter, smaller alpha platform for 2014 so to do a major overhaul on this one (when it's selling very well) would be a waste.

Also raiding the performance parts bin wont cut it. Everything would need to be certified and go through the government and EPA testing. There's a reason why most of the parts say "off road use only".
