The fact that you're asking this is a sure sign you're over your head. However, to answer your question, yes! A very big yes. There are a lot of supporting modifications you will have to do. I'll wait for Stealthee to post because I'm lazy.

Check the first post in teh FAQ, under "TT conversion". Lots of good info there to give you a basic idea of parts you would need to add one or 2 turbos

Because it's a complicated job, that isn't done in your driveway with a set of socket wrenches Saturday afternoon. It requires gathering quite a few parts that weren't necessarily designed to bolt right up with each other. Some fabrication and hardwork is necessary. There isn't a standard answer, because it's more in depth of a question than "how do I change my oil?"

He didn't mean any harm by it, just simply put, alot of people ask that question, and generally speaking, if you have to ask, you probably are in fact "in over your head"

Don't take offence, but for a novice I'd recommend selling your ES and getting a TT/VR4. Once you start adding labor costs it becomes more economical to just start with a TT.
