You can build your own turbo kit pretty cheap, you just have to get all the parts. You should be able to get it for about $1000-$1200, or cheaper. Look around ebay or you could probably put a cam in it. I heard any power chips are not very good.

There aren't any real power chips for yor vehicle. You could port and polish the head, get a cam regrind, etc. P&P can be done locally with good race shops near you for approx. $1k and www.webcamshafts.com will regrind a cam for you for less than $400. Once you start diggin in the engine (pistons, rings, etc.)..if your not doing your on work the cost will damn near double. And learning to E-shop parts is a good skill to acquire now, once you can do that you can build a better kit for less than the Turbonetics. I'd rather get the Drag Gen IV kit anyway since the fuel system is a lot easily upgraded and it's cheaper.
