Turbo

Just saw this turocharger for the Compass... Says it will give hp gains of 12-20% (ahh the ambiguity of marketing...). So if I'm lucky and get 15% gains, would that be like having a 2.7 instead of a 2.4? I used to drive a Sportage and that was noticeably zippier at 2.7L (ok it was a V6)... But you would imagine you'd see a difference in power by adding one, no?

Has anyone done this? I just mean the thingy that increases the air pressure. Not an air intake like the ones some people have...or is it the same thing?

If you have are there any cons? Obviously the air filter would get dirty quicker, but thats not a huge con.

If it's one of those little Tornados, it won't do a damn thing. And if it's a legit turbo kit, with the re-routing of exhaust gases to spin up the turbo and create boost, you'd probably be able to get a significant amount more power than the 2.7L, but if yours is a CVT I dunno if it would handle the extra power.

The 2.4L in the Compass is one of the world engines (incidentally, so is that 2.7L from the Sportage), and so its very, very similar to the engine you'd find under the hood of a Neon SRT4 or Caliber SRT4. Those are both capable of 300+ hp, so if someone was enterprising enough, they could definitely get those kinds of power in the Compass. It's just be a pretty large cost, especially considering you can get low mile Caliber SRT4s for like $13-14k

lol... I guess it must be one of those tornado things.. Your talking about a SUPERcharger right? Those are the powered ones that re-route exhaust gases etc right? Not one of these:

Superchargers are belt driven compressors, whereas a turbo charger is driven by exhaust gases. Superchargers produce constant(ish) boost as they're actually driven by the engine itself, whereas a turbocharger requires enough exhaust gases to go through them to produce the intake compression, and thus have to spool up. Both of these require some decent amounts of work to install into a vehicle that doesn't have one from the factory, and both can destroy your engine if not used properly.

If its like the thing you posted, it's only going to take your money. A simple fan like that won't produce any boost levels, it's only going to block your intake. Common scam items, just like the resistor chip things people sell.

Attention! The Jeep compass and others in it's class were not destined to be used with super or turbo chargers. They are not street rods or dragsters. My advice, nix the idea and get yourself a good sound system or at least a nice Ipod. Then you can play supercharger noises to your ego without wacking your nice little World Engine.

Last time I heard of someone fitting their compass with a turbo charger they ended up with a lot of drive train damage. The transmission, transfer case, drive shafts, CV joints and other associated parts aren't strong enough. I imagine that it can be done if the entire drive train is changed out for something heavier with stronger parts.

XRL, the thing that Iochinprc posted is basically a piece of tin to try to force the air to spin differently and mix with the fuel better. I don't think it's going to make a lot of difference.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

I agree with what's already been said here, unfortunately, the Compass is not designed for a turbo/supercharger or any kind of forced induction. However, a decent CAI and modified/freer flowing exhaust can produce decent enough results in the HP and MPG areas, and there are some DIY CAI's that you can make out of materials you can find at your local home improvement store.

i thought having turbo chargers in our jeep will help us achieve up to 50% increase in hp w/o damaging our engine.

Welcome to the forum mike6187! Tell us more about your ride! Where did you find a turbocharger that claims 50% HP increase on a Compass? IMO, it's just not worth the risk, or the modifications involved to make it work, but even at that, eventually, you reach the end of the potential. I think if you get 200HP max, you've got the best you're gonna get on this one and even that would be a drastic change on a 4 cyl. engine.

Some nice stuff there, no doubt, but I don't see where they offer anything like that for Jeep or Compass.
