Turboing a 2.0 16v What do I need?

OK well I am still confused whether what to do, I want more power and I was thinking about either putting the usual stuff, chip, exhaust, intake, cams, 1.8L head, or just saving all that money and slapping a turbo. Does anyone know what are the benefits of it? What power could it produce with low (safe) boost? How much is it going to cost me? How safe is it on a 90k motor? Your input is appreciated.

Here is your answer. Just rip me off before I change my mind.
This engine was built from the ground up...
After much work and much money, I was only able to run this set up for about 500 miles working through the "break-in" stage of 1000 miles when a garbage truck decided to cross my path causing me to total the front-end of my car. I will be selling the engine and tranny.
The tranny was re-built by Certified VW Tech, who installed a Quaife Diff, Redline Gear Oil, the works!! The engine was bored one size over. JE pistons were installed, 1.8 head on a 2.0 block, Matrix Stage 1 Turbo, TT HiFlow CAT and TT CAMs, Nology wires, silverstone plugs, too much to list, NO SHORT-CUTS WERE TAKEN!!! This engine runs hard, just drop it in and roll.

The kit was $2250 and I have about the same amont in the engine. I will let both go for $3000. If you want tranny and all, 4000.
