Kind of limited on the series1 engine, sorry. Could do a little porting, but anything you do will have to be custom.

You could do some SERIOUS custom work and ADD a turbo to an existing */C engine. But you would have to do more work, swap trans, axles an stuff. Cause now your pushing some serious power to the trans.

Ya, your trans is going to be a problem. If your going to go to that extent, I say pick up a series2 engine with a 4t65e-hd trans and drop both in the car. You will need the PCM and wiring harness. Way more power. And you will have a true sleeper.
