Is there anyway to get more horsepower in the iQ. I have to drive up a very steep hill on my way home and my iQ does 65 at 4000rpm which is really not good for gas. Would turbocharging the engine help or is there any other way to gain those extra horsepower?

The only mods I have seen so far are cold-air / filter mods.
Even then the most you could expect is maybe 5% if you were lucky.

The iQ is tuned for mileage. If you could get into the computer you may be able to change the parameters a bit, but anytime you increase horsepower you are bound to decrease economy...

Yes i did, I used the S mode but it didn't help much since i had the pedal as far back as it would go. B mode helps a lot but i still don't won't to force the engine that bad. I was told that its bad for a brand new engine but I don't know if it is a myth or not.
