Question Is it worth it? Like really?

I have a 2006 zx3 se automatic. I was wondering if it is really worth turboing the car. I have 50k miles on the car. No issues at all. A 3inch TruBendz SS Magnaflow exhaust. This is the set up i was thinking at this point. I would like to have some sort of a set up for the car but do not know if it is worth doing it to this car.

FSWerks Stage 1
Ecu: PVT1
Turbo: GT28R
Fuel: 93 Octane
Downpipe: 3 inch SS (to match exhaust)
Upgrade diverter: No
TurboSmart Guage: Yes
Autolite 103: Yes
Boost Controller upgrade: No
Injectors: I do not know at this point if i should
Wastegate upgrade: No

At this point my car is just a daily driver and will probably keep it that way even if i add a turbo.

I am not an expert in the area! WHAT SO EVER!
All i want to do is get some input from the more knowledgeable and see if its actually worth doing this to an automatic. I understand i sound like a "NOOB" but what all would you guys suggest for lower end work if any? I was hoping not to have to do anything major but realize that there will be work that is needed to be done.

Thanks guys! Any suggestions/help is great appreciated.
