    and what you want to do with the car, i.e. drag, time attack, street, road racing, etc.

    he doesnt have to go turbo... it just doesnt fit his budget to really go NA, could do nitrous but that just isnt as much fun...

    Yup turbo it.

    Build the bottom end if it needs a rebuild anyway with some cheap ass Vitaras and get some cheap TT rods and you are good to go. Might want some head studs while your at it and have the engine apart. Its just good insurance.

    Nah, especially not if he already has a halfway decent I/H/E. I'd put it more about $1k if you're careful on parts selection and purchasing, then do the labor and tuning yourself.

    Yeah, but like I said- do the labor and tuning yourself. Port work sufficient for 150whp can be done on your own if you know what you're doing. ;)

    But yeah, $3k with assistance.
