Yeah, you can easily bolt on over 500hp no problem. Buy the biggest turbo kit you can afford and then put a huge shot of nitrous on there. Youd be good to go.

man guys take it easy on him. yes, if he looked a little harder in the search section all of his answers could be found. and yes, his name is d17master and hes asking questions about a d17? but anyways, im not turboed, but i have read alot about our cars with turbos, to me, it sounds like to just put a turbo on, your looking at 250hp max. but with alot of money, you could probably make a pretty nice engine. d17s are finally getting some attention, there is a d17 in the forced induction section that is just under 400hp. do some more research, and if you have a few extra grand, put a turbo on. but if you want just a mean engine, be prepared to spend the money and time to do it right.
