    Hey.
    To start with, I'm as dumb as they comes when we're talking about car engines.
    I can switch simple things that's similar to motorcycles but nothing more :woot:

    It's a 2.4L 155hp engine, or 2L, not entirely sure, without turbo .V(

    What are some simple tunings I could do that would give some notable horsepower, without emptying my entire bank account?

    Hi and welcome |B

    I am a long time Mitsubishi owner and may I suggest that you either trade the car in on a turbo model OR buy a turbo front cut and transfer the motor and loom into your car.

    Your motor is most likely a 4G63 2000cc OR a 4g64 2400cc.

    Well, frankly I don't think It's possible to trade into a turbo model.
    Been on the used car market for ages looking for Mitsubishi Eclipse with turbo and not a single one for months.

    Any idea what it would cost for a turbo? Was rather thinking the price of the job and not the turbo.

    It's not just the cost of a turbo alone but the cost of all the supporting mods that will / may break your wallet when you factor in the total cost of the following items

    Turbo
    intercooler and pipework
    bigger injectors
    turbo manifold
    3 inch exhaust
    Aftermarket computer and wiring loom
    Forged pistons and rods ( a must do if it is to last when you turn up the boost)
    Dyno tuning
    Big brake conversion ( nobody builds a turbo motor to go slower so you will be stopping from faster speeds)
    Remove head and have it recoed and install a MLS gasket plus ARP head studs
    Replace water pump and timing belts when head is off.
    Better tyres

    Just my 2 cents worth :)
