If it's cheap and reliable it isn't fast.
If it's fast and cheap it ins't reliable.

is your car fuel injected? or carby fed? sometimes the dealer blow through setups pop up on ebay for a not bad price not sure on the reliability or power they produce though theres a site on here that have a few different stages of turbo kits but i think they start at about $3,000 and then you also gotta prep your engine for it and i think they are only for the efi models though eitherway your looking at atleast $5,000 and with more power you need bigger brakes and better suspension so theres another $1000(if you know people with bits and pieces and can help) - $2500 and being on a learners permit i didnt think that L platers and P platers were allowed to drive turbo charged cars unless its a work car or your over 25 i live in SA which is fairly timid with car laws and its like that here, i might be mistaken though
