Yeah, I would probably get myself into tooo much trouble! I have a lead foot to begin with so to slap a turbo on it would probably land me in jail! LOL!!:D

Get a stainless steel header. I suggest 4:1 for you but either 4:1 or 4:2:1 will be fine. Do you want to do your exhaust at the same time or just the header alone and have it bolt up to the stock exhaust?

Honestly Im not sure! I just got my profit sharing check yesterday which was $1683 after taxes thats why Im in the market now. So why do you suggest a 4:1 over a 4:2:1 what is the difference?? and how would we go about doing the exhaust?? Is there a certain type of piping we would need??

Oh forgot to mention even though I got that much $1100 of it is going to my parents for the car stuff so I still have a lil bit of spending money but I dont really wanna spend all the $500 (already spent $100 of it LOL!!)

4:1 is better for making max power at high RPM's and 4:2:1 makes more from low to mid RPM's.

Depending on the header you may get a nice mandrel bent downpipe as well. Depending on the piping included we may need to change nothing more on the exhaust or build custom pipe for a ways. We can do the custom pipe thing by buying mandrel bends and cutting and welding them in my garage but it'll take us forever to do it so I would have it done at a shop as long as you are running a cat. If not we'll have to do it ourselves.
