I was searching the compass forums to see if anyone has done it yet and am a little surprised I haven't found anyone who has done it yet.
Different animal. These are 2.4 VVT engines, new design.

Still thinking on it. Use the turbo from the Caliber SRT and do about a 4lb waste gate so that my CVT doesn't self destruct. I've talked with a few guys at the dealer about it.

is that all that would be needed really? is to use the srt turbo and a 4lb wastegate?

Custom plumbing and maybe programing. That's as far as I've gotten with it so far. Still in the "dream" state.

I got a few friends who are into turbos and what not, just I don't know how we can treat these new engines and what not...thats the only thing I need is to blow it up! lol...
i'd like to just wait for a srt4 to be found with engine in tact! so I can take all the stuff off it since its the same engine! and it should all be good then..do some custom piping...and bam

More info on the 2.4 VVT The engines were designed to be turbocharged and supercharged, partly through use of large water jackets and metal areas around each siamesed cylinder.

Go for it. Being the first can be quite challenging and personally rewarding but sometimes not very cheap. Like Lee Iaccoca said "lead, follow or get out of the way".

you can build a turbo kit that will run 5-10lbs of boost for a rather reasonable price. at this point the only problem i see is the manifold. It would have to be custom made since no one makes one yet. Unless the SRT's manifold uses the same bolt pattern?

parts list.

Please feel free to add to it if i missed something.

Turbo
Manifold (with matching turbo flange)
Wastegate (if not internal)
BOV (blow off valve)
Custom downpipe and exhaust
Custom pipes and intecooler (or just pipes to rout the intake if running less than 5 lbs of boost)
Fuel and spark controller (safc, e-manage, etc)
Larger injectors (not sure what size the factory uses but you may not need to replace them if only running 5lbs of boost)
wideband o2 sensor and gauge (for proper tuning)
Boost gauge
EGT (exhaust gas temp.) gauge - from my experience with supercharging a car i learned that these are handy for tuning to ignition timing. If you run too much timing youll get detonation, not enough and your EGT's will go up and burn out the turbo's bearings and the CAT-converters.

For those of us with the CVT we would probably want to run an aftermarket Transmission cooler as well.



I would say a good kit would cost around 2500-3000 with the custom fab parts. If you have a shop do the tuning you could eliminate the cost of the widenband and EGT gauges but i would still recomend having them eventually. For those of us that are crafty you could probably fab a kit for around 1500.

lol my friends have fabbed up a lot of their own stuff..so maybe its something to look into, it'd be nice to see one done and get info from it...but who knows, its always cool to be the first! lol

you wouldn't really need a custom exhaust as 5lbs of boost would be fine under the stock piping! it'd just probably sound cooler lol!

the only real thing stopping me right now tho, is i'd have to say bye bye to my warranty! lol

I really should not be paying attention to this thread. This is my commuter buggy, not a racer. I need the fuel economy. I don't need another sports car......Turbo.... ARGH!!!

Being extremely involved in Rally Racing, I would love to see a Jeep out there actually competing in stage rally!

Rally racing looks like it would be a blast. I did several TDS type rallies (Tulip/Trap/Gimmick etc.) in the 80s and always had a blast. The midnight mountain one was one of my favorite! (9PM to 9AM)

I think Chrysler would do well to produce a serious rally car. Just wrapping plastic skins on the same car is simply not enough. (Of course I am looking at buying those skins for my limited...)

I think its been discussed here (cant remember the thread offhand) and (I think) the general consensus was that the CVT tranny will explode. just doesnt have the HP/torque rating for a turbo.

My understanding is the reason why there isn't an AWD SRT Caliber is because the AWD system can't handle the 300hp

I don't see why you can't turbocharge a 4x2 Compass though (would be like the Caliber)

It possibly can if you can swap it out with some Lancer guts, I'm not sure how similar the components are. The SRT 4 Caliber has the 6 speed Getrag transmission. Maybe a manual compass can handle the same. I think the Rallye edition should be Jeep's version of SRT to begine with
