While there probably is a single turbo manifold as well, you can't add a turbo to a car designed not to have it. The compression ratio would be too high. You would get pre-ignition that would crack the pistons. Only engines that came with a turbo can survive running with a turbo charger.















The exception would be if you used direct injection, like Porsche does, but that is very expensive.
