Question about Mitsubishi Lancer
Initially, pls try the L2 without the caravan (if possible). Run it through its paces and see if the engine performs as expected. If yes, perhaps the caravan is weighted down beyond the capacity of the L2 (to my knowledge, 2,700kg braked trailer towing limit); if no (and problem persists) then confirms it is an engine problem.
If it is an engine problem (can not get the jeep past 2000 revs), and you suspect the turbo, the simplest/easiest check is to use an accurate boost gauge, length of hose and hose connectors. Specific steps/procedures are detailed here.
If the turbo checks out, perhaps an OBD style diagnostic scan might pinpoint probable faults and/or a major tune up might improve things a bit. You may want to start with the O2 sensors and/or the EGR valve (cleaning/replacing).
Incidentally, there is a "Power Upgrade Pack" that is claimed to increase power output to 138 bhp at 4,100 rpm should you be interested.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
