Default High Performance Engines for Dodge Stratus Coupe

Just wondering what it would take to turn my Dodge Stratus Coupe with Mittsubishi 2.4l 4G64 engine into a sleeper car of sorts.

i had contemplated rebuilding part of the engine and giving it a high pressure turbo of around 15 psi. Then I began thinking which would be better this or to just put an entirely different engine and transmission in. Any suggestions for engine, etc, cost to do the entire thing?

I would suggest getting a better car first. Chrysler sedans made in that era were infamous for having glass gearboxes, glass engines, poor handling and a whole host of other performance-killing issues. You'd spend less money building up a different car than you would making the Stratus hold together under more than 250HP or so.

That's a Mitsubishi Sirius motor. They made a few different models. None made any noteworthy power.

And its FWD so you can't just go crammiing a motor in it unless you can do fab work well.

Price? North of $5 grand easily

Gotta agree here. Want it faster? Ditch it for a better car to start with. Then make that a sleeper.
