My name is peter and I hope to help answer your question.

The porches is quite a complicated beast in terms of intake air flow and intake pressures, it is possible to turbo charge them but its a complicated process as inter coolers needs to be installed, engine management modified and low compression plates need to be installed in the engine itself.

In truth it would cost more to do than selling your vehicle and adding the extra to get a turbocharged one already.

I hope this helps, any further questions on this please let me know. Don't forget to accept my answer.

Best regards
