Lightbulb questions concerning turbo

I was wondering what mods would I have to do in order to put a turbo charger in my 2000 zx3? I'm thinking about getting one in a few months and I wanted to know what all I would have to get in order to put that sucker in.

There are companies out there that make turbo kits for the Foci. Do a search on here or go to the forced induction forum. There is lots of good info there.

If its a complete kit you won'e need any. Some mods complement the turbo: exhaust, intake. Are you going to buy the turbine alone or what?

The Turbonetics turbo kit is being held up because of lack of proper tuning , And there not even close to the same kits , Granted there both turbo kits but that where it ends
