Applying IN Portugal for Portuguese citizenship

My mother is a Portuguese citizen by birth, we both live in the US where I was born & raised. I want to move to Portugal, but I’ve heard the process for citizenship can take many years here in the US.

If I went to Portugal & applied for citizenship there, would it be quicker? And would I be kicked out of the country before the process was finished if my time to visit as a ‘tourist’ ended first?

Basically I’m afraid to go there to do it & then get kicked out because I ran out of time
