There are no kits out there right now. TMATurbo is getting ready to make kits again sometime this summer. I believe his basic street kit is $3,900.

There are several turbo cars on these boards , shinerstang and Shine1stang, that are pushing well over 600rwhp.

Short answer is, yes you can turbo the car. The stock bottom end is fairly tough and no one has cracked a stock 3.8L block on higher boost yet.
It is the block that is strong. The rods are the weak point on a stock bottom end.....
