SVT turbo build... ebay special

Ok, so I've made the plunge to go turbo on my 03 Screaming Yellow SVT. The cars got 73k on the clock, and I bought it with 18k. Anyway it's been stock except for eibach sport kit and a cold air....up until now. So here are the plans:

So far I've installed the intercooler and fabbed the manifold. I'll post some pics later today of whats done so far.

Custom log manifold, 304L SS built by me.
SCT X3 with Pro Racer Package
2 gauge piller pod, boost and 02 (I know it's just a light show)
Ebay special items-
Turbo - T3/T4 T04E
Intercooler- 28x7x2.5 w/ Greddy Type-R blowoff part of the deal
38mm Wastegate- Tial look-a-like with 8psi spring
T3 flanges in stainless
Brand new precision 42# injectors of ebay, I know should've gone with 60's but these kept me in my budget.

My idea is to be able to keep the car on the road while making the transformation, hence mounting the intercooler already. I've started mounting the gauge pod with the gauges but ran out of light yesterday after work. This weekend I want to mock up the manifold to the head and make sure my design will work. Also while I'm there, I'll fit up the down pipe and the cold piping. I plan on using part of my cold air piping as my charge piping from the intercooler outlet although I think it may be a bit too big causing a big drop in pressure but I have to try. Thats pretty much it for now, I'll get some pics up and keep everyone posted if there's interest.

I'm open to suggestions as well.

Thanks,
John

Well I have a tight budget of 1400. Currently I'm over by 30 bucks but I think I'm complete as far as purchasing, that's down to the t-bolt clamps! That said I'm attaching a few pics. The manifold is made from scratch excluding the turbo flange, also a ebay item! The last two pictures show the intercooler as it sits in the car, my camera died otherwise I would've shown the install of the intercooler. I'll try to post the whole tranformation as I go. I can post some pics of the turbo and such if interested.

Enjoy.....

1000. is pretty good but keep in mind that 1480. includes the purchase of the SCT X3 and the PRP. That alone was around 750. So I don't think I did all that bad cost wise.
