TUT 3.2 GTA turbocharging?

The mounting of a turbo on this car should be pretty easy, but i am interested to know if it is possible to boost 0,5-0,7 bar on it without altering the engine? I would run 99 octane instead of 95 and have a remap done.
Not alot of turbo gta's out there - or at least not alot of info on them.

i would like to turbo mine but got lots of other jobs to do 1st
when i come round to doing it i want to get forged pistons with lower compression
would like to know what sort of boost can be run safely and reliably and whether changes to the plenum an throttle bodies would also be good mods

i reckon rotrex would be easier, turbocharging will be more fun. which one do i think will suit the car, linear power from the supercharger, plus no need to get custom manifolds and exhausts, plus i wreckon if things go wrong on a high boost turbo apllication i wreckon ur repair bill will make u cry.
