Talking newbie buying 6.5L chev

Hey everyone,
I'm currently in the market for a (my first) 4x4. I've found a patrol wagon locally with an n/a chev diesel in it. The car itself is a 98 model with around 250k on the body and about 55k on the motor. It has every mod I could ever dream of doing to a 4x4 for touring and getting out and about camping etc.
Ive read the n/a motors are lacking in power and wouldn't mind getting some kind of forced induction down the track weather that be a turbo or supercharger.
So basically I'm just after some input on others experiences with these conversions and wondering if anyone has converted one from n/a to turbo/supercharger.

Thanks, Mitch.

everything from turbo motor will switch over to your N/A

N/A motor has the piston squirters blocked off and has smaller inlet pre-cups.. All of which can be changed to turbo spec,

I'm from From Launceston in Tasmania. Its been set up really well ! Twin locked, dual battery, bullbar, winch, twin swing away spare wheels, roof rack, hot water transfer under the bonnet for a shower and comes with rooftop tent, awning and a fridge plus more I've probably missed.

Yeah the bloke who has it now gave the guys at Brunswick diesels a call and looked into it a bit but just couldn't justify the costs of doing it. They were going to send a box down with everything he needed to get it done and were really helpful apparently. I know with the turbo setup I'd have to re locate the second battery to under the car somewhere but that also came with everything you needed to turbo it.

Look into supercharging it. There's a bit going on with this angle in QLD somewhere. Nice and simple.
I'd stay away from Brunny and their kits.
Trust me, turboing is a lot of work to get right even when you've bought a genuine turbo 6.5

I had a quick look on the net and a good (well what I thought was a good one) supercharger kit is about $7-8k. I was more thinking supercharger, but I'm open to either really
