No Vario has no turbine kit for a MD900
The trouble is that you must use an air pump for the Notar.
So you must find a pump and a way to power it from the turbine and I think there is not enough space for an extra pump in the fuselage

If you are thinking of using the jet blast from the turbine you need a metal tail and I think it will be to heavy.

But I like the idea of a MD900 with a turbine

I think Vario are working on a Turbine variant of the MD900 Explorer, from what i have heard it is going to be either a fan driven in the same manner as the gearing that drives the main rotor from the turbine, the other is the thrust from the turbine, the problem is that the whole ineer of the boom and outlet would have to be metal and this adds alot of weight to the rear of the machince.

Contact Vario UK or Vario themselves and see if they have any updates on this, the information i got was from Vario UK over a year ago, and they were working on it.

If you do a search here on runryder you might br able to find a video I saw once. I was the development of the system. It was a bad video but it showed the heli flying around.
