    As far as Scion/Toyota putting out a turbo model? Probably never.

    There are bolt on turbo kits available that will boost the car to around 200 HP

    I'm not sure which kit. I googled turbo iM and a forum post popped up. It did mention that changing pistons will allow you to boost higher safely and make substantially more power.

    Scion never made a turbo, on some models they used to offer a super charger, but I do not think they have that any more either. To turbo any car safely, it's recommended to change out some engine parts, unless your engine is already a performance engine. You can still turbo it without changing anything, I've seen it done on many cars, but if you use too much boost you risk the chance of blowing the engine.

    I was gonna get the turbo snail, go to a exhaust shop and have them make a custom turbo manifold and down pipe, get bigger injectors and was looking for a tune but they didn't crack the ECU yet.
