Bought a 2012 LX, 2.4L 4C, a couple days ago (dang transmission on my saturn vue decided to die on me), and I'm wondering if it's possible to install a turbo in it. I've seen optima turbos for around $600, but wanted confirmation before I buy anything. I've also seen performance chips, if anyone has any advice concerning those! I'm loving the performance boost of driving in Sport mode, but higher performance is never a bad thing! Thanks in advance for any advice.

Possible yes. Probable no. The turbo your seeing is only a drop in a bucket. Ecu tune, manifold, turbo, cooling oil, Better plugs, air filter routing. Etc etc. Its not cost effective, but your welcome to do it and do a DIY so we can see the progress.
