For cheap mods....hypermax exhaust + a little fab to get it to work (3.5" exhaust). Open up the intake somehow. Instal a pyro, and turn the pump up a little bit. Should be roughly $500-600 for everything mentioned above. You should be making a good 190 hp at the crank.
You can find used turbo's. It seems like recently a lot of people are selling them as they need the money, so they can be had failry cheap. Heck I saw somebody on another site post a craigslist add with a 7.3IDI engine with the turbo on it, for $450. Just gotta look.
