Turbo/Supercharger/ECU Chip?

So I own a '16 Sports Altitude with the Tigershark 2.4L and since I'm planning to lift it and go offroading a bit, I'm trying to boost my 180 hp engine higher. Any recommendations that will work but not too expensive? Budget is 500 roughly but cheaper stuff also works.

For $500 you're going to be limited to an intake and maybe an exhaust. you're going to get less than 30 hp likely. the old saying goes, you gotta pay to play.

Well any ECU Chips I can use for boost, those things I will add easily, but mainly looking for a chip that might boost me well.

To my knowledge, there isn't anyone in the forum with an ECU.

Atm, the only "performance" mods available are exhaust and intake, and calling those performance parts is sketchy at best.

Upgrading to boost your engine will void your warranty?

I did the K&N CAI on my 2.4. Did get a boost in throttle response and feels much more responsive going through the gears.
