Search up around here man. There are plenty of boosted non-m builds around. If you're thinking on gettin over 400whp....expect to drop a LOT of cash. Even getting a turbo/sc kit is a pretty big chunk of change..not even including getting your motor checked out before you FI. Lots of maintenance goes into boosting man...you don't just get a sc or a turbo kit and slap it on your motor and expect it to work without fail. (Not saying this would be the case for everyone, but realistically speaking and I'm sure you guys will agree)

Thinks to think about...
1. Have a CREDIBLE shop check the motor and make sure it's healthy.
2. Subframe/Reinforcement
3. Budget $$$
4. How much power you THINK you'll be happy with/serve your daily "needs" (since nobody really NEEDS to be boosted..its just a guilty pleasure we have)
-Different kits will produce different results, you need to do your research on the 3 main SC companies (VF, AA, and ESS) and the 1 and only (TO MY KNOWLEDGE unless you go custom) Turbo kit company, Technique Tuning.
