That would depend on how fat your wallet is and what extra you want.

How much additional power do you want from it? Modifications can range from upgrades to the PCM, engine mechanicals, turbos etc.
10k is not too little but it isn't a lot of money too where boosting up power is concerned.

Retrofitting a turbo is one way of getting the top speed you want but not a god option as the standard engine components are not going to last. Getting a turbo engine transplant together with the PCM and wiring harness etc would be a better option but the 10k might not be sufficient.

Yes, turbo is the only way but it won't be long before you need a new engine.

Apart from an engine transplant with a higher horsepower you are never going to get that amount of power increase. Even if you are able to retrofit a turbo system to get it, you are not going to have the luxury of enjoying the benefits because you would soon be looking for a new engine for the one you have busted.
