u could get the pipeing from tom its expensive but made good ans looks just to sweet. Find the turbo u want somewhere online. If I was doing my own turbo build up ide want that potatoe turbo its suppose to be bad a$$. Get some i think 40 or 45 pound injectors a different maf or a calibrated one and a tune from tom or hyp. I would also get the loud hks blow off valve that thing sounds so dirty lol. Dont forget a waste gate Ide go with a turbonetics one for that.

you need a bunch of money,...no a whole bunch of money to buy a prepared Kit then a bunck more money to instal but I'm not sure how much money to tune... I'm assuming a bunch

Ive been working on a diy myself and yes it turns out to be a bunch of money too.
the parts would Include the Turbo-wastegate -manifold-downpipe- piping for intake and out to intercooler or straight to the engine intake- oil lines to turbo and return to oil pan- Larger fuel injectors-MAF sensor calibrated to work with the injectors and measure higher airflow- Chip or Program to change timing and Air/Fuel mixture there are also new products that may eliminate the need for the new Maf sensor but it's about the same............... You won't have to look through the threads long to find a few ready to install kits by turbo-tom and a couple of others take a look at them and they can tell you a lot better than me

I made myself a turbo setup for under 2000 and I have a friend with the Diablo tuning hardware/software. Much cheaper then ANYONE you will find in town/ANYwhere

Turbo is fun, but keep in mind if your going to use the car as a daily driver it may not be the best idea.
