so why does he "think" he needs a turbo?
is his going out?
or just looking for more perf?

if thats the case he needs more fuel, ie, better chip and injectors...

The first thing you need to do for your friend is b!tch slap him upside the head... When he's done crying, tell him to get a custom burned chip. He'll be better off. Then if he's really interested in a new turbo you can tell him about the D66 from beans. It's the only drop in turbo I know of for the 94-97 and early '99 crowd. Its a modded stocker that flows an additional 300cfm IIRC. Also tell him he won't see much gain with just a turbo. His injectors are incredibly small, a set of stage 1 or 2's (along with the custom tuning to run them.. hint, hint...) would be a great idea.
