How much horsepower does turbo add onto your car and can you put it on any engine? ?

    You could double the horse power but if it wasn’t designed to be turbo charged it won’t last long.

    Don’t assume that if your car is available as a turbo version, it will be ok. It may have the same size engine, but done parts may have been strengthened.

    Diesels are by design stronger and less likely to blow up with an added turbo.

    Generally speaking the engine specifications mainly lower compression ratio must be built into the engine first. After that you can expect a 10 - 15% horsepower increase. You can expect a larger gain in torque which is seat of the pants power.                       

    The turbocharger must be sized correctly for the engine. Don't forger the intercooler between the turbocharger and intake manifold. The turbocharger must have a high pressure oil line from the engine to the bearings on each side of the turbo. If you're really serious about this Gail Banks is the person to talk to.

    That depends on many factors including the type of engine being turboed, the size, make, and design of turbo being used... the list goes on.

    How long is a piece of string? If you have to ask if you can fit a turbo you can't fit a turbo.

    IT IS HIGHLY VARIABLE AND NO, YOU CANNOT TURBOCHARGE ANY ENGINE.

    No. You PoS is stuck to being a high compression wannabe.   

    You buy a factory turbo car  There is so much that is different from the regular none turbo model - they are not the same car.

    The amount of HP increase depends on the amount of boost your engine can tolerate. Given enough money, you can install a turbo on just about anything. If the engine was not designed for a turbo you will have to keep the boost at moderate levels to prevent detonation and engine destruction.

    No, I am not going to put a turbo on your engine.
