Turbo conversion - pub argument!

Here is a corker, after a few Newcastle Brown with Jagermeister chasers, was challenged to wring more power out of my mates 2.0l sport, I went down the old exhaust/filter/remap/nitrous......he wants to shove a turbo on it....I thought it would be easier to source anf fit an entire turbo block, but he wants a turbo on the original engine.......any thoughts?
