Sounds like TKT's turbokits. Some have complained about the quality of the work. (On plumbing, nasty looking weldings...) This is what I have heard, but dunno how true that is. I'm thinking turboing my MX-6 V6 but I think, custom turbo setup is the best way to gain maximum performance. Altering the turbos housings you are able to get what you want. Think about what else you'll need with it. Not always the fuel is a problem but in most cases. Injector issue... Then you'll need upgraded clutch to keep that power without slipping. Many many things to think about. Have you read the Maximum Boost by Corky Bell? If you haven't, you should. Check out http://www.probetalk.com and the forced induction forum specially. You'll find some custom turbo's over the internet by doing a search. If you go to the Probetalk, be sure to run searches, or you'll be pretty sure having some answers like : do a search.
What else? Hmmm... Oh. One of those custom turbo setups can be found on http://www.overboost.com and then search for Probe and you'll find something to read. Wanna know more? Just ask me, I'll be glad to help if I can. Altough I'm a rookie on this turbo stuff too...
Supercharger would be a lot easier to install. Have you thought about that too?
Well, later

What type of engine modifications are we talking about to get a supercharger on the engine?

How much would it cost to have someone install it, and what types of horsepower gain are we talking about?

Yeah, I'd like to know that too... I do know that they say you can expect a 40% gain on HP and Torque...i think..

Did you guys check out that http://www.boosthead.com link I gave you? I dunno how much do these figures lie but still I'm willing to believe that it is somewhere near the truth. It is possible to run with basically stock internals with about max. 8psi of boost. That is what I've heard. Fuel is the bigger problem. You'll need high-flow fuel pump, somekind of equipment to rise fuel pressure (FPR,FMU...)
Really, you should check out http://www.probetalk.com and run a search and you'll find a lots of think about. There are guys around who know their stuff and you'll find some intresting links there too, if you like.
