with the money you will have to spend to turbo that motor it would be better to spend some extrta bucks and drop in a k-series motor. will not only have the reliability but more hp than the turbo d17. can always turbo down the road

The D17 is just a bad motor to boost stock (compared to a different D series). Its just more work and higher risk, but it can be done. Change the fuel system and get a solid tune and 200whp will be safely acheived.
