Well the "chance" of turboing your BA is a question of probability. I'm afraid only you can answer that question.

What are the chances of you having the money and knowledge to turbo your BA in about two years time?

As to wether it will be worth it or not - i think anyone will tell you it's never really "worth" modifying cars. But by god, it's good fun and driving them is even better.

Put the time, research and money into it and the sky is the limit.

I'm afraid these are questions i doubt anyone can answer but yourself.
