Default turbo question

i want to appologize ahead of time if this is a re-post i tried searching for "turbo" but came up with enough posts to read to last me till next year.

so with that out of the way
are there any turbos or ways to fit a turbo on a '90 bonne LE? as you can see mine is not supercharged and they really don't make SC'* for my model. any info would be awesome or if i could be directed to a past thread that would be awesome

thanks

google turbo or sc for your size engine, then go from there. I am sure something can be salvaged to fit your engine.

Guys. The GNX I think was turbo'd.... There'* a 3.8L GM turbo'd car from the 80'*. The turbos are like $600 rebuilt tho, then you have to build the rest of the system.

(edit: Grand National comes to mind)

Plus the TH440T4 transmission is very weak. I must say though, I think it could handle 250hp/300ft lbs of torque. I really don't know this for sure, but I know you'd probably want to splurge for a more heavy duty transmission, especially if you were going to run big 10+ psi boost.

Would it be easier to fit a turbo in our Bonne'*, compared to a different size supercharger (besides the two stock ones available)?
