    How much $$$$ do you halve to invest? A good mod is to take the exhaust manifold off of a dx motor you might halve to elongate the bolt holes 1/8” to raise it up to mach the ports then get a 4” x 5” x 7/8” piece of aluminum and cut a 2” hole out the center of it and then drill it to bolt to your exhaust manifold and then drill it to bolt to a Mitsubishi eclipse turbo and take it to a exhaust shop to halve the intake and exhaust made for it get to cooler from the eclipse and get a new boost valve this will add around 50 HP for around $1,000 you can set the boost to around 5lbs also you might want to get a 1/8” gasket to lower compression and adjustable cam gear to retard the cam timing a little to make better use of the boost.

    yea you can turbo it relatively inexpensively. Or a swap. Search around, that's what this site is all about.

    you're just trying to make this SI as fast as your old SI?

    i think refreshing the motor would do the trick...
    all depends on how much power you want...
