the sl model has the exact same engine that the vr4 with the exception of the two turbos... only thing would be the injectors and if you plan to turbo your car, it'd be easy to go the TT convertion route. I have a 97 SOCH and I'm planning on hooking up a single turbo after the downpipe.. (lot of work and money) So just get parts from a vr4 and it should be easy to install them on your car.

You may not need to touch the internals but the engine has to be tight and in good shape. Any oil or compression leaks you have will be amplified by the addition of a turbo. Also colder spark plugs and possibly changing out injectors might be a good idea. Given that the SL and the Turbo models don't differ in price drastically, you might want to consider selling what you have and buying a factory turbo car. By the time you're done, it might end up the same investment in $$$.
