can you turbocharge the 3.1litre motor
you can turbo anything, it just comes down to cost and application, The cost (this is not cheap) would be crazy, it might be cheaper to put a V-8 in it or sell it and get a perfomance car that suits you. I have seen a 91 Firebird with a turbo, but the owner converted to a 3400 with a 5speed and put a turbo on it, he claims it cost him about 5500 to due. You might want to get a hold of some "turbo" manufactures and ask about an application, I know they have a "procharger" for your car. Mind you it will not be a easy as bolting one on, you will need to redue your cooling, exhaust, electrical, heat insulaltion. If you have a emmission test in your area, the car will not pass once you put a turbo on it (from what I have seen) but you can also put a cold air intake on it, put dual exhaust on it plus many other performance upgrade that are availble for your model. just my two cents, if it was me, I would drop a 305/350 in it. or sell it and buy a perfomance car that is suitable for what I want. Where abouts do you live? (just courious, I belong to a F-body (firebird/camaro) club, we might be able to help with the details) Let me know, and I will see what info I can dig up.
