you can turbo a stock motor, but get a real turbo not a mitsubishi junker. go to the forced induction area and read the stickies. a good turbo with tuning will prolly cost u around 4k

Check out the forced induction chat. You will find ALL the answers you'll need to know. OH and putting on any kind of turbo wont blow your engine... It's all about your tune and how much boost you run on the stock engine.

I believe you are able to push 230 whp with you engine.

But like I said check out forced induction.

you should not build a kit off the turbo you've found. you should build a kit around your goal. that turbo may be crap for your application. and there is still a good solid 3k ur gonna have to spend to get it turbo'd
