im gunna say 500hp depending on the motor.but with the money it takes to get it there, you might as well invest in a good car that you can get your money back out of if you chose to sell it

Put a good street legal, CARB certified turbo kit like the Edelbrock ball bearing turbo kit and your car will be quick. The kit makes about 200whp at 7psi, it can boost over 18psi but not recommended due to weak internals of the D series engines. Forgot to mention that the turbo spools fast due to the ball bearing design.

Actually thats the crank HP not the wheel hp. it puts down about 113 to the front wheels. Yeah you could turbo it, but without pulling out the motor and building it the absolute most you will be able to achieve is about 200 wheel HP. The cost just does not justify the gain. after turboing your engine is pretty much maxed for power. After a build and turbo look to spend $5000-$7000. Now you can swap in a B16 with realative ease, and save ALOT of money for the same amount of power. A b16 complete swap at a shop will run around $3,000 labor and parts, and you will have about 150 hp to the wheels. put the other $3000 in a turbo kit from turbonetics, or Greddy and have a 300 HP street machine.

As much as you want, just remember that its not going to be a reliable car on the stock block or internals with anything over 300wheel.
