Turbo'ing a GT

I was just wondering if anyone would have some input to have on some questions that I have.

I'm thinking about Turbo charging my car (which is a '01 Celica GT [it's a auto by the way] ) and I'm just trying to figure some stuff out. Does anyone know the best brand to get for the GT and maybe where I could purchase one at. And also if anyone has had a GT Auto Turbo charged before could you guys maybe help me out with the kind of power gains that you got off of it and if it's worth the money.

Thanks Guys...

That's what I'm thinking of doing...I was just wondering if it would just be worth it to just leave the auto alone and get the Turbo...thought that it would maybe even out in some way...thanks for the information though guys, you've been a real help
