Please USE THE SEARCH!!! turbos have been covered NUMEROUS TIMES. for 5000 get a zzperformance stage 2 turbo kit, upgrade your clutch and get the necessary gauges and you're good to go until 250whp without blowing your engine. I would stay around 240whp tops to be safe. After that if you want to up the boost, upgrade rods and pistons and you can easily push the engine to about 300whp with little or no problems.

Or you can go with a supercharger. On average the whole deal will cost you between 1500-2000.

And bboy, don't get crazy about the whole search thing. Someone suggested turbo, and he had a question about it. If he started a whole thread asking if you can turbo an LS then the search button suggestion would be appropriate.

I understand but he is spamming. The original post was a very general question that he could have easily clicked on the 'engine' section of the forum to get all his answers in a sticky. He also provided no information about budget, timeframe or reliability/dd issues in his original post, so please understand why I feel tha he is spamming.
