custom supercharger/ turbo

My friend was talking about getting a custom turbo for his nissan se-r. Where would you get the parts for doing this, how would you know which parts to get, and would this work for just any car make?

1. At the custom turbo store
2. PFM
3. Maybe, maybe not

Seriously now, if you're asking these questions it tells me there has been NO research done your part. Building and installing a custom turbo system is not something to take lightly. It's a very expensive and time consuming task that should only be undertaken by someone who is willing to put forth the required effort.

Oh, okay. I just did a 30 second yahoo search for "custom turbocharger" and it came up with 24,600 hits. That might be a place to start.

Personally I use these guys.
