Not quite right... First set goals in hp. Then injectors you select might not be right, torsen, manifold, wastegate, boost controller, clutch, flasher device,
mafia, tune, etc. Walbros are for over 500hp then
you'll need a build engine. Which turbo are you getting?

turbo's can be a dime a dozen, just cause you have the opprotunity to pick up a turbo doesn't mean you should. it may end up being an oversized paperweight! if ur wanting a good turbo kit be prepared to spend 4k.

complete turbo kits include turbo manifold to bolt the turbo to the exhaust, down pipe to go from turbo to rest of the exhaust, piping to go from turbo to intercooler, intercooler to keep the air charge cool, intake piping from intercooler to throttle body, silicone piping connectors and clamps, then you need blow off valve and waste gate so you dont blow the charge pipe off the throttle body when you lift. then you need oil feed lines to go from the turbo to the oil pan and you need a bung welded into the oil pan to accept the oil line. then you will need properly sized injectors for the amount of boost you are running. you can get injectors that are larger than what you need and the tune will adjust them to whatever level you need. and most importantly you need a tune otherwise you will blow your car up within a week more likely than not. please get a wideband o2 sensor and A/F ratio gauge to go with it. and make sure it is a WIDEBAND. this is a very important tool in tuning. dont plan on running more than 12 psi MAXIMUM unless you build your bottom end to take it. on a stock engine you will be making between 220 and 260whp on 12psi depending on what shape your engine is in, what octane fuel you are running, and what supporting mods you have.

turbo setups are not trivial, the how to would be a book. there are several books that have been in publication for years on the turbo-charging of engines. they would be a good read to get your background info on turbo systems in general; its easy then to adapt your knowledge for the specifics of your particular setup.

turbos along with power bring, engine stress, oil stress, heat, fuel and maintenance requirements. make sure you are willing/able to address these extra precautions and maintenance requirements.

I mean a zetec specific how to install, a GENERAL install, not saying that the other person has to do it the same exact way, just a general guide line, that would help out alot of us noob turbo fanatics lol.
