The NA engine (non-turbo) is NOT built for a Turbo. IMHO if you now want a turbo, buy one, don't bother with the cost to install everything you would need.

Replacing the stock intake will help a bit - it did on my '02.
I had an AirAid, but this one looks better:
K&N Apollo Cold Air Intake Systems -

Stick the hose in the same fender hole as the stock for cooler air.
