If cost is a factor then my friend, u barking down the wrong alley.

Turbo charging costs ALOT. It's not simple as fitting a turbo and tuning.

In that case, try mr turbo. They are reasonably priced and I did see them advertise casted turbo manifolds for 8v engines, u can get most of the stuff from there

If costs are a factor also look at Alert engine parts.

They keep a range of OEM type replacement turbos for common vehicles.

Prices are good and the quality is acceptable.

If you have modest goals, a budget build is achievable.
