What kind of car is it, first of all? Also, it is better to start with the small stuff...intake, exhaust, etc, before installing a power adder to you motor. Is your fuel system sufficient to handle the rigors of forced induction? How about your engine internals? Your drivetrain? Do some research before you think about making such a drastic (and expensive) change to your engine, such is the way that leads to engine rebuilds.

when u instal a turbo u will need to look at several things. for a mild turbo kit u will probably be good with the stock internals at low boost. most kits come with a intake but they mostly wont come with a downpipe and exaust, u will need to widen your exaust sya\tem to get the most of your added airflow. most kits come with new fuel injectors and a piggyback ecu, if it doesnt, u will spend a bit more money. if your looking for more boost, bigger turbo and whatnot, you will need to look at the internals first, macke sure they can handle the power, chances are they wont, second, and this is what gets alot of tuners, make sure your trany can handle the power, some tranies cant and tear up EASILY. your axles are another thing to look at.

You buy a Mustang GT with 300hp out of the box. That should solve your problem.
