yeah it's been done multiple times... sounds like your having trouble with the intercooler. the job of the intercooler is to cool the heat from the air flowing from the turbo into your motor. if it doesn't all work out, you can always try maybe a jackson racing supercharger, they don't cause as much heat as turbos however they don't have as much potential as a turbo either, but a supercharger is fine if your wanting low boost, 8-12 psi and even as much as 20 psi.

Go find a pro shop around where you live, and have them do it right. It costs alot of money, and dont even try if you think you might not have enough. it would be around 5k if you get good stuff, and this is after tuning. There are lost of issues when turboing any NA car. IE oil leaks and such. Do some research then decide.
