That all depends on how low are you willing to go with compression and are you going to do a complete turbo upgrade to the block and cylinder heads while your there? If you do it right you can get away with 18 to 20 lbs of boost, of course engine life is greatly reduced as those pressures. If your just going to go with factory compression then limit the boost to no more than 4 to 6 psi.

By the time you do all that and spend a lot of money, you could have just purchased a faster car with better fuel efficiency, I would advise you not to proceed with your plan. Keep it original and find yourself another car.

Building a good turbo engine will be a lot of work and it will cost a lot too. Edlebrock has a crate supercharged motor you might want to check out.
