There are lots of forums online for how to turbo this engine. The basics are, pistons, connecting rods, bearings, machine work, head work, turbo head gasket, new oil pump, oil pan welding, turbo, turbo plumbing, yada yada. Or you can get a Cummins 4BT and have fun with THAT little monster, 4 cyl making more torque than a small-block V8. May have to lower your rear-end gear ratio (mid 3's?), since they rev pretty low.
