a turbo makes you a bit slow off the start unless you change a few things in your setup.especially if you have an automatic. if you dont have a turbo think about all the things you would need to changeout befor you can drive it... injectors, fuel pump, oil cooler, air cooler, all the pipeing, the turbo. unless you have a project car and you did the work yourself, i dont think its worth it. just my opinion tho.

i was thinkign maybe mitsu has a kit for this. you can check might be worth it that way.

Turbo's generally don't increase the low end speed or torque. That's what a supercharger does. I guess you can monkey around with the gearing, but adding a turbo would require far more work than it could possibly be worth.
