No, I've not heard of any.
The main difference between 2.4 and 2.8 is in the stroke (length of block etc)..so why not turbo it....
A unique bus cheers

Isn't the 2.4 an alloy head and kinda prone to overheating issues because of that?

My understanding is the bore is longer on the 2.8 block..other wise the same......cam and crank aside I thought the head was the same too.
Any 2.4 owners reading this??...is your head alloy or iron?

I believe the 2.4 engine is the same as the one used in the 2.4 surf which has an alloy head...I dont think the over heating is in any way linked to the fact it has an alloy head just that its fragile and if you have any over heating issues its prone to fracturing....
