    This is mentioned in the FAQ, availiable from the swiss.ans.net server
    (Gopher or http.)

    You can't, alas, just bolt on a turbo. The two engines aren't really
    the same, so what you're actually talking about is a whole engine
    transplant. It's probably cheaper and easier to sell your existing
    car, and buy a turbo-charged one. 

    Shame, really...
