I think you should be able to get real close to 14'* if not in them with pems/1.9'*/tuning/weight reduction.
The 95 se is a combination of the lightest bodystyle(92+) and lightest engine. While it'* not by a WHOLE lot, it still work torwards your advantage.

Putting a turbo on a 111k mile engine tranny is not a good idea. A lower mileage bottom end will handle intercooled boost well and even better with ported heads and a turbo cam. A rebuilt tranny with raybestos clutches and a LSD should handle a good amount of power. I've heard the 4t60'* have a stronger chain and gears compared the the 4t65'*.
Putting a trubo in your car will cost a lot and its not sonething you want to do [email protected] either.

Before you decide against this plan, realize that cost will depend largely on what turbo you get. There are some cheap Garrett T3s on Ebay that could probably be used. Yes, they're intended for 4 cylinder applications, but a buddy and I were talking about them and he thinks you could make positive boost by putting one on an L36. Heck, you could always go twin turbo with two of those cheapies. We figure the best way to do it would be a cheap turbo mounted in a remote location. If you do most of the work yourself you might be able to do it for $500-$700. Give it some PEMs and a chip in addition to the turbo, and you're sitting pretty. Probably not a 13 second car with a small turbo like that, but then again I really don't have any good estimates for how much power you would potentially gain.

What do the rest of you think? I'm I full of crap, or could this be feasible?

This is a bigger turbo than I had in mind so it costs more than what I estimated, but it might be a good match.

Sure it'* possible to build your own kit but it takes a lot of fabrication and knowledge. The pre-made kits are probably the best way to go and should work 100% with the exception of the downpipe.
With that newer engine, if you got a tranny rebuild with a few extras your car sould be able to handle boost pretty good.
How far are you from 19115? I did my cam install and i've got the exact same car.
