I have a 2015 Optima LX that I am wondering if I am able to add a turbo kit to my 2.4. Also any ideas where I'd be able to get one?

Able to yes. Cost effective no. You will not find a true bolt on kit. Piecing it all together your bearing down into 9-10k ranges. No I dont have proof.

Exactly, while it is very possible, it would make much more sense to simply sell the car, and buy the turbo model, and then build the turbo or upgrade to a larger one...

Was in your position a couple years back. Took a deep dive on the interwebs about this. Long story short some company was planing to make a bolt on kit years ago and the idea just vanished (i guess there wasn't much demand).

As everyone stated, it's possible but you'd have to really do it on your own with unspecific parts, no directions, then you'd have to tune your car. Not cost effective.
You're better off just getting a kia optima turbo.

I upgraded from a 2013 lx to a 2016 sxl. Definitely happier now.
