    Anything is possible with enough money thrown at it.
    What engine is in there now? Have you seen any other projects that suggest the engine could support a turbo with blowing itself apart?
    Even without the massive upgrade of a turbo there will be things you can do; decent air filter will release a few extra ponies, as will an exhaust at the other end. Those two combined with a remap will see a few gains in BHP and torque.

    However that will cost money (how much I dont know without knowing the exact car and what is available in your area) and it might be more cost effective to start with a different car. How much do you really want to challenge yourself and how much do you like the car?

    its a 2018 hyundai elantra sel, it has a naturally aspirated 2.0 liter atkinson cycle engine , (modified ottocycle not true atkinsons cycle) i know the 2.0 can be fitted with a turbo , it was done by vaccar , and there was also the BTR concept that was done in partnership with boostec and hyundai for the 2017 SEMA, boostec has a full turbo kit for my specific car and engine , turbo ,oil lines, intercooler, down pipe ,manifold gaskets and ect so i know it can be turbocharged, not really looking at forced induction right now more or less looling at cold air intake , upsized exaust and a stage 1 ecu flash already found an intake from Ingen for my make and model next step is exuast and ecu flash

    The engine is the NU 2.0 multiport injected Atkinson cycle engine , 147 - 154hp at the crank , the car itself uses a automatic 6 speed shiftronic transmission ,
