That's a tough one. Depends on whether you like lots of torque and responsiveness, or the ability to tune it balls out to max power without breaking something for less money.

I love my 2.5 turbo, but am $2,000 poorer because I crushed a piston with too much boost.

It is probably easier to find a 2.0 JDM motor than a turbo kit these days. I am looking into selling turbo kits, but...

Up to you. Either way, do it right or don't do it at all.

Steps (in order)

1. get a job
2. get a second job
3. (if you're dating) explain to your significant other the meaning of "going dutch"
4. Christmas won't be coming this year.

heh heh heh.

I think you might want to $$ look into $$ a nice transmission to mate up with the new power.

First buy a different car, because it is really annoyingly difficult to get a turbo kit together that you like. It will take alot of time, money, and PATIENCE. Good luck.
