The usual advice is to sell the NA (naturally aspirated; not turbo) and just buy a Turbo version. There is no economical way to reproduce one. The Turbo models have stronger transmissions, differentials, axles, suspensions, etc. Plus, there is just a whole lot of work involved. The only exception to this are the 2nd generation RX-7 Convertables and 1st generation RX-7 GSL-SEs. Neither were offered with a turbo and both are valuable enough to make such a swap potentially feasible. It's still a PITA, though. Basically, if you have to ask you should not attempt it.
