Whoa says who? Turbo will gain more horsepower/price in most cases. All-Motor will cost you more just to even hold up with a turbo power, but will usually last longer.
If you're going to go Turbo then I would not waste money on buying engine mods like I/H/E until you have a for sure PLAN of action on what to do. In the mean time you could always go the Nitrous oxide route to get some fast cheap power.
You might also want to check out our turbo forum and see if they are able to help you out.

Yeah I know, and where did Neons come from? And I hope you mean stock Stangs and Camaros, because trying to compete HP wise with modded ones could cost hella money. Obviously, he knows that there is no replacement for displacement.

uh all motor non-vtec...way too much money to get it anywhere decent. You can look into a ls/vtec conversion but its not cheap to do it right. Use the search button and you will find everything you could possible want to know, and then after that if you still have a question than post it.
