I don't see why you can't turbocharge a 4x2 Compass though (would be like the Caliber)
From what I've heard, the STR Caliber is not turboed because it would then be straight competition with the Lancer EVO - except for far less money. Apparently many components on the SRT Caliber are Mitsubishi, hence why it never happened.

Ah but the SRT-4 Caliber IS a turbo but not AWD - only FWD

Cutting down the boost would help the CVT live longer but then the AWD coupler becomes the weakest link in the chain. The FD II coupler is supposed to be more HD, I'm not sure in what way, and may help in that area.
