You might be able to turbo the engine but you can't run more than 6 psi with your engine. The better option but more costly would be to get a legacy gt or swap the engine out for a turbocharged version. You can get more info at WWW.SL-I.NET

There is more to it than just putting a tubo on the car. You may have found a cheap Turbo but the catch is you need an intercooler and all the hardware to go with it. You would be better off just doing a swap. It would probably be cheaper to do with less work. :)
