first things first what turbo.....you should get the toms kit and it has everything you need.... it is possible to run on stock internals but its not good for the engine...if you want a nice setup then get all new internals and be sure to get a blow off valve...alot of people just want one for the sound but it actually helps ALOT

you can run boost on stock internals. If you have $4k get toms stg1 kit and tuning and a good exhaust and you will have very close to 200 whp.

I heard the turbo setup at Precision Turbo & Engine is a really good setup. And just in your price range. I would save up a little more money for the install and tuning as well though.

Turbos are great but don't overlook supercharging there are some great kits out there!
Also with a great power increase the stock clutch will not do, and if do clutch you may as well do the flywheel. Wheather turbo or supercharging the stock engine can handle it, Stock boost that is 5-6 psi.
But the problem with turbos and supercharging is the temptation to increase boost and this a stock engine will not take it. If it was me I would supercharge the power is there as so as hit gas plus with turbo there that sudden boost of power after 3000rpm which put get stress on engine and tranmission that's why superchargers come with 100 000 mile warranty. I have owned turbo's and no turbo come with that kind of warranty
