Turbo & NG ignition

Yes, but isn't that car a turbo JT? That's a low compression (8:1) engine, my NG is 10:1...hence the question of whether it can take even a little boost...I'd certaily be happy with a bolt on turbo setup that could get me up to around 150hp (up 20 from the stock 130). But I don't want her to go ka-boom.
