No its not a dumb question. Turbo kits and Turbocharger kits are the exact same thing; just abbrieviated names. Basicly what a turbocharger does, is use the engines exhaust gasses to spin a turbine that forces more compressed air into the cylinder on the intake stroke. This is called forced induction.

Read this . It will explain it far better than I'd be able to.
