You're pretty much stuck with what you've got. You could certainly find a shop to build a custom turbo setup but it would cost a lot. More than trading in for a V6 and who knows how much boost the stock components could handle before you'd need to pay to upgrade them, as well.


I feel your pain though. Back in the day I had a I4 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse that was painfully slow. I ended up running a Zex Nitrous kit until I was able to find somebody selling custom header manifolds I could source together the rest of the parts for a turbo. In the end, I wasted a lot of money and it wasn't worth it.

I have an 2.4l i4 trailhawk. I have yet to notice any power issues when offroading. No issues whatsoever climbing hills or getting over obstacles. The v6 may have more power, but the v4 is just fine off-road.

You can see I called it an i4 first. Clearly just a typo.
