I have a 2013 Optima 2.4 GDI A/T , is it possible to upgrade performance by adding a supercharger and a turbocharger as the car is naturally aspirated with none of the two components came with the stock engine .

Probably not wise to stress that engine. I believe your model year was one of the top 3 for engine failures.

I'd keep it as is and add a Porsche to your stable.

Long and short of it. Can it be done. Absolutely. But your talking full custom job. No bolt on kits exist. It isnt cost effective.

Imo sell the 2.4l Buy an SXL, or new k5gt with the stock turbos. You can chip them. They are easier to modify as the base is already there.
