Most cost effective complete turbo install for 2000 Zetec+MTX75 Zx3.

I've got a 2000 Zx3 Zetec 5-speed manual in need of some boost. I'm buying something in 2-3 weeks. I'd also like recommendations of reputable installers in DFW, TX.

Here's what I want:

#1 Mild boost that won't entail overhauling the tranny, brakes, exhaust et cetera right away. I like to do things like that with my Sundays, and having a shop do those parts kills my fun.

#2 Quick spooling

#3 ALL the parts. If they need to be purchased separately --I need the whole list.

#4 Estimates for what a reputable shop should charge to install the kit. I'm new to this part of car-topia, so I don't know what going labor times/rates are for these cars.

#5 Budget of $2500-$4000 for kit+install+tune.


Thanks!

What is the basic list of parts I will need? Not brands or models --just the parts.

Once I know that --the rest will be easier.

There's a guy selling a pretty complete roush turbo kit for a steal of a price for what's included. He's been trying to sell it for weeks, check the BST section.
