turbos on 2h's is a common upgrade and one that works well. That is a reasonable amount of k's on the motor and I would check it out well before fitting a turbo. When was the pump timing ,injectors etc done? have you had a compression test done?

Neat 60 is in the process of doing a turbo upgrade and the exhaust manifold has presented some issues for the type of instal he is after. Check out what is available and what type of install you want to do before committing to it.

If you do, keep the boost mild. Even a small amount of boost transforms the 2H (in that it is not a total slug on the first uphill incline), but resist the urge to crank the boost if you want a reasonable life span (and start with a strong motor and keep an eye on EGTs). If you are not seeking a million kilometre motor, a turbo is probably the most cost effective option this side of a 12ht swap (still very pricey) or vehicle upgrade.

While onroad the difference is very noticable, when in 4wd and especially low range the slow 2H is no worse then 12HT.
