Sorry to say it is what it is, a 2.4 N/A engine with really no performance potential.
Sell it and purchase a turbo Optima, but remember, the '11-'15 turbos ar 274 HP while the later models dropped the HP to 245.

Just thought I'd add that the '11-15 2.0T comes with 274 HP, with much more on tap with upgrades.
They are certainly a fun car to drive and for the people that desire some acceleration, I'd look for one of these, but the only problem, they're getting up there in mileage. Guess >'16 wouldn't be a bad choice, but with only 245 HP, one would need some aftermarket enhancements just to get to the previous year's 274.
