I have a 2009 Ford Escape XLT 3.0L V6 and wondering if you could turbo charge it

Yeah basically I’m wondering if I could make the escape a little bit faster for fun.

With enough know-time and money, sure.
There are no bolt-on kits.
This question comes up a bit, (search it), I don't think that I have ever seen a completed install.

saw this video a while back, basically a high performance rebuild for the Duratec V6 engine so it can be turbo fitted.
of course this is not for a daily driver not cost friendly:

I'm not the guy to squash a project like this. I actually love it when people do these kinds of mods. Please keep that in mind.
Boosting an Escape would be very costly, time consuming and bad news for the rest of your driveline. The list of things you have to upgrade is pretty extensive if you want to get a decent increase in power.
Alternatively, you may be able to get a modest bump (40ish hp and 30ish ft/lb) from one of those turbos that go further back on the exhaust and not have to do any other upgrades.
Good luck,
