Just some questions about a turbo

Hey guys, new to the site and am looking into adding a simple turbo to my car. Nothing too serious, just something to pick up the pace a little bit lol now I don`t have a lot of money but just looking too see some general quotes and what it will take. I have looked around and seen some people mentioning low 14s possibly break 13s if done right but I have no clue if it is true, so that`s why I am here. If you could give some ideas, quotes or any advice you guys have that`d be great. Thanks.

A local guy did a DIY kit on his SE and he was running about 12psi and laid down low 14s and if he could get a little traction could have easily got into the 13s.

I would recommend starting with one of 1turbofocus' kit. It has quality and has been proven and will also be the cleanest setup.

Tom
1) Is this CARB approved?
2) Where can I find it? I looked at focus-power.com and all I can find are the following options:
Complete Engines
Stroker Short Blocks
Short-Blocks
WRC CGI Blocks
Custom Billet Main Caps
Ported SVT Head
MTX Transmissions
Custom Fabrication

Stock internals would be fine on 10 psi and I never heard of anyone saying the Procharger puts too much stress on the crank. It's just like running another accessory.
