Like only buy parts to handle enough boost to get around 260 whp. aka not future proofing or anything. but Could it be done for 3 grand?

Just want it to work with no issues and if that requires more money I would be willing to spend the extra cash.

Youll blow it at that power level. Yes it can be done for under 3k with mostly used parts. I spent less than that.

You need to understand that theres always going to be issues and you have to accept that you will have those issues and need to fix them

Can turbo anything you want. Your transmission probably wont take more than 220whp very well though.
