Without spending an enormous amount of money (or some serious ingenuity on your part), it will never be as fast as your bike. It is doable though, but keep in mind that people that are "new to performance cars" don't generally jump off the deep end. It takes time and experience to put something worthwhile together.
I'm looking to add a turbo but i don't know where to start. i wanna add atleast 60 hp to my car.
Not a bad goal, and easily attainable with a small t25 centric setup.
also i don't have alot of money
STOP. Right there. Just stop.
Did you hear me? It sounds like you are still trying to go.
Don't take this the wrong way, because you seem like a nice guy and I'm not trying to textually rape you via the interweb (which is generally the treatment we give out to clueless new guys around here, however, as I said, you don't come off as a dickhole...so +1 to you!
Generally speaking "I don't have a lot of money" translates directly to: "My car is going to be a flaming pile of ****". While there are exceptions to every rule, combining that statement with "I have very little experience" inevitably leads to utter disappointment and savage abuse here at MT.net when you make stupid mistakes.
My advice: Sit down, and SERIOUSLY figure out how much cash you have to spend. You can definitely do things on the cheap, but "cheap" is subjective. If you set aside a healthy ~$3500 dollars give or take, you could have a very nice, reliable street setup with all the fixins. Take a look at the bell engineering Shanghai kits. Couple a basic kit with a cheap exhaust, a new clutch, a megasquirt, some injectors, and an ebay IC setup, and you would have a decent setup with room to grow in the future.
Just remember the old saying: Cheap | Fast | Reliable - Pick two.
OR, you could be a retard and try to buy everything from ebay, and end up with a car that is a worthless turd. Your choice.
