When set up properly its not like that. We arent talking about an instant shot of nitrous or anything, its boost. Doesnt have to be much different then the boost of a supercharger.
I too have done a few turbo set ups on cars, and it could be done on a Jeep much the same way. If you you can weld and have some basic fab skills you can do it cheaper then most SC kits out. The problem is and difference in this and what I have done is as mentioned above...Jeeps come in many different forms. The rest of your Jeep may not be up to it. Its not like taking an LSx motor and drivetrain designed with the idea of power being increased. There are axles and trans/tcase set ups in Jeeps that will grenade if you try to have fun with the new power.
