Im not sure why you would want a turbo Kia Rio, but anything can be done with time and/or money. Really, you should either do a complete engine swap or just sell the Kia and buy a Honda...

Sell the Rio if you want performance. Buy a performance car or one that is built strong enough to take abuse, your Rio is not.

Do you have a manual or an automatic gearbox? And how much power was this nitrous shot adding?

Most vehicles nowadays are built to last a few hundred thousand miles, so even an economy car can be run hard for some time before things start to fail, but longevity will suffer. As long as everything is in proper working order and you keep up with maintenance then a 30 shot or a small turbo would be about all you could run without pushing things too far. You will likely have to have a turbo manifold welded up, and more importantly you need some sort of engine management. Not to mention all of the other odds and ends that end up costing a fortune.

All in all, it would be cheaper to pick up a cheap, used sporty car that needs some work and modify that. Mustangs are great for this.

Oh, and what's up with stealing my name?
