Default why not supercharge it?

Just wondering why Mitsubishi isn't offering a supercharger on it's new "MIVEC" V-6 Eclipse...To me, it's kinda disappointing that the V-6 is producing 263 horses at 5700 RPM, which really isn't that bad and it's a SOHC..What about us sport compact guys who like the extra boost from a turbo or a supercharger? I own a '99 GS-T which is halfways customized and haven't done that much to the engine and it's putting out that much power with a 4 banger, stock turbo, and a couple of mods..I'll stick to my 2nd generation 4G63..The 3rd generation was a mistake stylewise and I didn't like the thought of them producing a V-6 engine anyway..The '06 is a good lookin' car though, just need to beef it up a little.. Just posting this cuz I can't find out how to e-mail Mitsubishi and ask them about it after being all over their website.

because the evo was meant to be the top of the line mitsu for performance, not the eclipse. they market it toward people who like to "cruise", listen to loud music and have some pep, im sure you've seen the gay eclipse commercials.

ya those commercials are not the best the only good part is the women and the car!

I like them personaly after siting in on i like the layout a lot. they feel more sporty like seats.

agreed. if they turbo/supercharge the new eclipse, it will compete with the Evo, and possibly take sales away from it. thats not what mitsu wants

If you do wnat to boost a 4g hahn is looking for project cars,6cyl/ 4cyl, and conceptillusion is making a 2nd stage kit for the 4g 4cyl right now. Like everyone above me the 4g63 in the eclipse was to hold over the market untill they could start to move some evo's, once they started to by by gsx/gst.
