what would be the best/cheapest way to get a turbo into my AU XR6. buy a snort performance turbo kit then have to get the injecters and tune? or buy like a BAT motor and drop it in?

Depends how much work your willing to undertake, or pay for.....

Cheapest and best dont necessarily go hand in hand. I would turbo what you got, but a conversion is legal......it's all about the $$$$$.

Good luck with it.

You will ultimatly get more bang for your buck turbo'ing what you have, the money you would otherwise waste on engine and conversion to get a standard baseline turbo, could be better used subsidising a real performance build the first time around
