Wow, ok, I'll start of with a question for you first, then we can get into some more details of what you will need for turbos.

How much boost and/or power are you looking to make with these turbo(s)?

Your answer will greatly influence the list of things you will need to upgrade to run that setup.

Re: help

on your car I would not run more than 400hp (at the wheels) where you currently are around 220-230 at the wheels if your lucky. You can do that pretty easy with a supercharger or a turbocharger.

Cost will be 4-6k just depending~

Re: help

a good start in my opinion would be to get, forged internals, better heads and cams, it is almost essential for running boost, i think. then a better intake manifold.

then the boost.

Re: help

The heads, cams, intake, and internals all need to work together and be made to go with a boosted app.

Re: help

Do not over build or under build your engine. You need to know what you want and go for that. There is no point in dropping 20k on an engine when in the end you only wish to have 300hp or so.
