Default '04 Ion Turbo?

I have done some research and all I can find is is a "universal" JDM turbo kit. I have several questions. I don't know THAT much about cars, but I know that when it comes to turbo's there isn't really a "universal" because every car has different engine space.

1. What would be the cheapest way to get a turbo kit, or turbo and all the parts and what would the approximate price be?

2. Where would I get such a thing and what parts are needed?

3. What other modifications would be needed?

I am in the process of turning my stock '04 Ion into a tuner and was hoping you all could help me. Thank you very much!


Also, would it be cheaper to supercharge it because of the Ion Redline? If so same questions.

Thank you all so very much for your help!!

IF YOU WANT A TUNER ION, BUY A REDLINE OR 05+, 04S cannot currently reliably be turbo or supercharged.

he's just one of them, I'm sure there are plenty more, standalones and piggybacks (you're right, this is what elvis's blew up on), are very tricky to get working, and I wouldn't trust one.

His ran just fine on a STANDALONE... piggy backs work with the ecm with what else you were thinking of is the 5th injector setup. Only reason he blew up is he got boost happy on the smt-6 5th injector.. elvis's rings wernt gapped rite so it sezed and the new owner fixed it and it was running on the standalne just fine with a msd ignition setup, then he parted it out when he got sick of it.
