Anything is possible with enough $$$$. The question is do you have enough? It might be waaay less expensive to find a good 931 in the first place.

The 924 engine is a poor enigne to begin with, very low power not much to work with, Im sure you could add a turbo with a low boost application 8-9psi, But why not get a 924S its got the 944 motor much more HP potential then the 924, but im sure you could add a turbo, just need some $$$$$, start looking for used 931 parts to help you out a little.
Here are some web sites
http://www.924.org/techsection/technical.htm
http://www.924board.org/viewtopic.php?t=11059&highlight=turbo+na
http://www.924board.org/index.php
/forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/forumdisplay.php?f=70

Go to theses sites, read them learn from them then ask yourself the question again.

That young man in the picture has the right look on his face to answer this question. "Naaahhh"

If this one is in good shape, try to sell it off for what you paid for it and start saving for the 924S. More power, lighter than the 944 and faster. Or find a good 931. They can usually beat the crap out of most 924S or 944 N/A. Check over on 924board.org. A lot of Brits over there and sometimes have some for sale.
