you would almost be better off putting a V6 in it, more reliable and probably cheaper

supercharger kits are much easier to fit and more readily available.
i was going to install a turbo, but it was just too much messing around with oil lines and exhaust brackets, specialy on the straight six where exhaust and intake is on the same side...

if i think back, i was going to custom make all the pipes and brackets cos it would work out cheaper.

the supercharger is a good option cos it sits on the other side of the engine to the manifolds, and there fore there is heaps more space. when i was pricing up the difference, i think the supercharger kits came out cheaper, and that was $2100. Castlemain rod shop do supercharger kits for these engines.

hope this helps

Yeah i would chuck on a supercharger rather than a turbo for a couple of reasons, more power and cheaper unless u plan to custom make a lot of parts.
