for a drop in turbo, you have a 38r option. it can get you to 500 hp range with good tuneing
you'll need a fuel kit or something with pump and a regulated return
a set of 238/100s will get you around the 500 range as well. and when your in there, it will be added insurance to add studs/springs/push rods as well.

for a price of roughly 5200$ just a guess.

searching here on the forum will get you your answer

When you get to those HP levels, reliability can become an issue. Be prepared to mess with a bunch of lil issues after installing "go fast" parts. The 38r turbo, some injectors, custom tunes, HPOP (depends on injectors installed), bellowed up pipes, heads/valve train, rods, ARP hardware (top and bottom end) that should get you there
