Unless you are prepared to tear apart the engine, don't bother. Turbocharging is absolutely the best way to increase power without adding much weight, but you need high strength pistons, rings, engine block and heads. You may get by for a few years without modding anything in your engine but it will eventually fall apart.

Alot of MONEY !!!!! Better not to mess with that car because it's worth a few bucks. Best to get a new Z06 and do nothing, or a mustang and toss a few K into that if you want to mess around.

merchandise value $4500, plus installation. Buy a new engine. Better choice.
