anything that requires added fuel to compensate for increased air flow (like a turbo) affects emissions. a properly tuned turbo setup should still have no problems passing emissions tests, though.yeah they make one and they average about $2500 to about $4000 depending on the maker of them...
Me personal I have no experience with it, but a friend has and he likes it, it gives you more horse and torgue without affecting your emissions, but they can a bit of a maintence issue for some... hope this helps

it's not something to enter into lightly. first and foremost, your engine must be in good working order. you WILL need to run premium gas if you want your engine to stay healthy. turbos generate a lot of underhood heat, so you'll want to check all the plastic and rubber bits (specifically vacuum lines and fittings) under the hood to make sure they're in good shape. you will need to upgrade your fuel system, but a good turbo kit should come with what you need to do that. transmission wise, you may want to consider a stronger clutch for a manual or a better converter and a shift kit for an automatic. not required, but they will help harness the new power.
if you plan to put a turbo on a otherwise stock engine, you will want to limit the amount of boost you run to keep your engine alive.
you will also want to have your setup CUSTOM TUNED. many kits will give you a chip or a piggyback module to get you up and running, but they are not good long term solutions. you will want to be tuned for your specific vehicle, not a canned tune.
before you spend a dime, do as much research on turbocharging as you can. they're a great way to make efficient power. they're also a great way to grenade your engine if you don't know what you're doing. if you do it, do it right.
Inline motors make awesome torque so this would be a great addition with a good torque cam and geared axles.
Do your research first and get with someone who knows about turbo's but don't try this yourself, it's not as easy as people make it out to be. And NO you cannot "JUST" bolt on a turbo unless you want to buy a new engine.
GL; I am working on this right now too although I have everything more or less to finish it, it's just wether or not I want to now or stroke it.
