It depends on how mechanically inclined you are. I see turbo swap engines on eBay all the time in the $1500 region. I don't know if that includes the ECU though. I don't have that kind of cash so I haven't checked the descriptions, I just notice them when shopping for other PT parts. There used to be a turbo conversion package available for ~$3000 but they don't make it anymore. The last used one I saw on eBay sold for $600 and the seller didn't know if everything was included and he didn't stay how many miles were on the setup.

It isn't just the engine - turbo has larger cooling system, different wire harness,...
A LOT to sort out.
