What sought of question is that?

You have physical and performance criteria to consider when selecting any piece of gear, let alone a turbocharger.

To answer your very blunt and semi retarded question with a very blunt and semi retarded answer:

Yes, you could technically make any turbo FIT on any car. Whether or not the idea of mounting a garrett GT6041 to a 3 cylinder geo holds any intelligence... well thats a matter of opinion.

You can put any turbo on any car, but it doesn't matter what turbo you put on, there is a limit to the amount of PSI you can run. On a stock non-turbo engine, if you go above around 5-7PSI you will start blowing out parts like no tomorrow. In order to run high PSI and get a lot more HP you have to get new, thicker gaskets that can take the pressure, get lower compression ratio pistons, and replace the rods. Also if it is a manual transmission I suggest getting a better clutch as you will burn the OEM out very fast.

(Turbo runs off of exhaust gases so you would need a header that has a connection to a turbo, unlike superchargers it can be put ALMOST anywhere in the engine bay provided you want to run that much piping to it.)
I have seen a Eagle Talon with an aftermarket turbo(not sure which one), A huge adjustable wastegate, a huge intercooler, and a 3" exhaust ALL the way back. that was nice...
