you could try doing the cheap turbo setup: find an mr2 turbo, grab the turbo and manifold, and bolt it in, but its not gonna boost much (maybe 200 hp tops) and you're gonna need other stuff to work with it (I forget what). And you can hit up you local auto dismantlers and find most of the necessary stuff.
I paid $300 for my CT-26 turbo (off a Supra tho) and some jackass stole it. To make matters worse, it wasn't even the right one.
You can probably put the MR2/Celica turbo kit together for close to $1000 is you shop around for a while. It'll take time to find the right parts at the right price, but it's possible. You'll probably want to build the internals if you plan on serious boost, which is what your camry will need for decent power. It would be good if you have a local welding shop as well as a source for mandrel bent piping for this project.
