It certainly is an ambitious and expensive project. I'd recommend you ask a lot of questions and get informed as best you can before pulling the trigger on a build like that. The worst thing you can do is run in blind and broke.

More people supercharge their NA cobalts since you can usually do it for $1500 or less.

Get the parts off the kit, and get them used (all except the turbo). Put all the parts on, and call it good.

Get a S256 turbo by Borg Warner and run about 25-30psi, and call it a day. Will be faster than a lot of cars on the road, uses a lot of really common parts already out there so it will be slightly cheaper, and will give you decent power.

If you want more detailed info on anything performance related, feel free to ask.
