Possibilities for turboing?

If anyone checks on this, how adaptable is the fuel injection system for adding a pair of turbos, not looking for a lot, say 8-10 reliable psi. Ideas, thought or suggestions? Please no negativity.

well, if you are thinking of certain V-6's, say the "U", not very adaptable. Even though the rail system is fairly easy to access, the location of the manifold air intake in the back of the engine discourages enough clearance for a turbo system to mount properly.

Not really looking for how will it fit, but rather how will the fuel injection system work? The engine is a rebuilt crate engine with 10k in overhauling to it and I'd rather not damage it with more fuel management. Might switch to aftermarket if necessary but hoping it isn't necessary.

Honestly, I've done a bit of searching, I'd leave it alone, seriously. The sites I visited all talk about timing issues afterwards, and far as I know, The Eagle is not worth trying to re-time to CPU reset.
