Its either reliable and expensive or cheap and not reliable.

Its gonna get costy if you do it properly. This is what you would need to get one going:

Manifold w/ turbo flange
Exhaust (2.5 inch)
Turbo (buy a used one, like a Mitsu td04 rendition) w/ built on wastegate
Piping and silicone couplers
Blow off valve
Fuel pump
Engine management system (Motec, megasquirt, etc)
Intercooler (possibly needed if you are running higher boost)
2 hrs worth of dyno tuning

That would get ya going. Its expensive.

I was considering putting a turbo on my 16 valve but I don't think it's worth it. You can probably swap in a more powerful motor for cheaper. I am thinking that when I decide I want more power that I am going to swap in a 2.7l V6 out of a XL-7 because it will bolt up to my existing doubler. Also, stock motors are much more reliable.

You can slap in a Chevy v6, but it's going to be way more heavy, and heard to work on (really crammed in there). A VW diesel is best for rock crawling, but expensive. Rotory motors are a good fit, light, and fantastic for mudding - crap for rock crawling though. You could turbo your engine, it will probably cost between the V6 and VW Diesel options, but it will be lightweight. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages.

If you're in a buggy, you'll have lots of other options - Mercedes diesel, 22r...

What application are you going to use this vehicle in?

The only problem with boosted applications is that they are extremely sensitive. If you cant adjust air/fuel mixtures on the fly, elevation sure changes the way it runs. You could even get into a situation where you are detonating, which is no good.

I would do it for pimp factor, its on a buggy so thats good, just take into condsideration when you are doing the stuff that you know where water tends to hit. I learnt in science a splash of cold water on a stupid piece of metal can cause problems

ya thats why I will stay away from the turbo. the 1.6 will spin the rear tires good enough. if I have to much I will probaly start jumping it. that would be no good considering its made to crawl rocks!!
