the only sure way is to remove the cylinder head and measure the diameter of the piston cylinder muliplied by the length of the piston stroke(how far it travels from bottom to top) this will give you the cubic inch (or cubic centimeters depending what country your are in) of ONE cylinder multiply that by the number of cylinders to give the total engine displacment (Size).

Yes, such kits do exist but there is alot to consider. There are several things you have to know about your engine before you buy a turbo. Check and see what engine size and model your car has, and then look up to see if turbo kits exist in that engine size.
