1999 1.6 16v focus turbo?

hey, i am wondering if i wanted to install a turbo on my 1.6 focus would i need to upgrade alot in the engine or not that much? if so could someone please explain to me what would need to be replaced...
I think i have found a turbo that should fit my car, its a Garrett GT2560R Turbocharger.

As I don't know alot about turbos i would appreciate any help.
cheers.

it seems like you can turbo these focuses pretty good without having to build a new engine like you might think. there are a lot of guys on here and on www.focaljet.com that have turbo kits with stock engines. i was looking up turbo info just the other day and that turbo you are asking about is a good size match according to garrett for your engine. do you have focus pros where you live? i'm guessing you are not in the usa since you have a 1.6 engine??
