    You can buy cheapo tap sets from $2 shops.

    does the job.

    If it were a tool that would be used fairly often then I wouldn't cheap out.

    on the turbos its a stud, just remove the stud with another one.
    Due to heat on the turbos the studs do break down

    If your tapping make sure you take it slow and reverse it every now and then. Nothing worse then trying to tap a new thread and the tap breaks on you. I use to work at an engineering workshop, even the expensive taps break easily.
