With 2k as your limit dont try to boost. The cheapest route would be to find a used kit and even that could still be around 6k once everything is installed and ready to go. But then you have to remember it takes money to run a boosted car. If you want boost, plan to spend at way more than 2k.

if your going to boost your car plan to spend well over 2grand.. and then u have to factor in lil things that your going to need. and if u cheap out be prepared to spend more money in the long run due to cheap parts breaking and things like that..

You're looking at spending ~10K if you want to turbo it. Those ebay kits are a joke, trust me.

You can buy a used S/C unit on the forums. But be advised, sometimes they're not complete. I just finished peacing everything together for my powerdyne, because I misplaced a bag.

Those used kits are not always complete. And I meant that even with the used kits, Its gonna be close to 6 grand once you buy the engine managment cause most of those kits dont come with one, its installed, dyno tuned, and the tranny work is done.

you will not be able to do a turn key turbo setup for 2k. You could bottle and invest the rest.

Locking, you really can't get a reliable setup for $2,000. Save up and wait.
