Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!
Yes, it can be done but like the guy before me said, it would be 100% custom. The stock engine could handle a small amount of boost, but I wouldn’t push it past 5-6 pounds. TO get into the teens you would have to do some lower end forging, and while you were there i would recommend lowering the compression ratio a tad. You'll have to take a lot of other things in account too, rear end strength (wheel hop), Injectors being pushed 100% duty cycle, Tuning, Intercooler plumbing and mounting, custom header/downpipe (unless you go remote), and the list will go on and on... Guys it's a 5 Cyl, that doesn’t really support heavy modifications, and I don’t blame GM for that at all. They made it an affordable option for middle class people to get bed space, crew cab, and have 4wd.
If you want something to be fast, go out and buy a 2500 HD, and rape the shit out of it, and run mid to high 11's with it.
