Full Install or DIY?

Hey all.

So i'm looking at getting a turbo fitted to my 1.8 DOHC. I'm looking at the GT25 and was wondering whether to go for a full install or buy the TC and build it myself.

Full install costs 1800 including fitting and comes with

# Tubular stainless Steel Manifold.
# GT25 turbocharger ( Suits 255 bhp quick spool )
# Larger GT25 available (suit 285 bhp and 350 bhp)
# Milltek Sport High Power Stainless Down Pipe.

or purchasing the TC for 830 which comes with

Adaptor Fitting Kit
Nut & Bolt Kit
Two Piece Universal Actuator Mounting Bracket

What else would I need if I went for the DIY install?

Thanks all
