question about turbocharging a heavy car

well boys and girls your thoughts will be greatly appreciated. i am curious about the effects of turbocharging a heavy car suchas my wagon for power and economy. i do have a supercharged mustang and notice that cruising at highway speeds gets 0 boost. what about a turbo car do you get boost when cruising on the highway or would your gauge read vac like on my vortech setup. not looking to run the quarter or anything car is just a cruiser and was curios about a little more power and economy
