Turbo noob's q

As you'd probably guess while reading, I know jack- about turbos. Found a shop here that sells these turbochargers for pretty affordable price (300-400euros), so I need a confirmation if any of these turbos will suite my cars needs, looking for a low boost kit.
My car is a 2003 Zetec.Here are the specs:

- Turbo T3
Brand New T3 Turbo 4 Bolt Exhaust Flange.42 cold a/r • .48 Hot • 2" OUTLET • Great Turbo for 1.6L to 1.8L engines • Spools on a 1.7 @2700 • TURBINE WHEEL: EXDUCER: 1.81", MAYOR : 2.48" • COMPRESSOR WHEEL: EXDUCER: 1.67", MAYOR : 2.36"

- Turbo T3/T4
HYBRID T3/T4 T04E TURBOCHARGER STAGE III WHEEL,.50 A/R COLD,.63 5 BOLT STANDARD HOT SIDE,3" INLET DIAMETER, 2" OUTLET,.57 COMPRESSOR WHEEL TRIM,.60 A/R COMPRESSOR,.63 A/R TURBINE,57 TRIM,TURBINE WHEEL:EXDUCER: 2.48",MAYOR : 2.89",COMPRESSOR WHEEL :EXDUCER: 2.07",MAYOR : 2.36"

- Turbo T3/T4 with internal wastegate
Turbo .50 .63 3" VBAND EXHAUST 6.0 PSI INTERNALLY GATED TURBO • FORD SPRINGVALVE ACTUATOR • HYBRID T3/T4 • T04E STAGE III WHEEL .50 A/R COLD .63 3" SUPER VBAND OUTLET, 3" INLET DIAMETER ,2" OUTLET .57 COMPRESSOR WHEEL TRIM ,.60 A/R COMPRESSOR, .63 A/R TURBINE 57 TRIM

P.S. - the kits say they are designed to run at 0.4bars of boost. Will that be ok with stock internals?

Will ANY of these suit the Zetec as part of a custom turbo kit and, if they do, which one of them will be the best to get, since they're all within a resonable price variation.

Thanks,

Alek

there is a lot more to a turbo kit than just getting the turbo and if ya dont know much about one then i would suggest buying a kit that is already made. it may seem expensive but unless you are good at custom fabrication or have done it on a focus before then it will probably cost you about the same as buying a kit.

I never thought that you just buy the turbo and slap it i like you do with youre usual "Type R" decal. As far as I know turbo stuf, I'd need the turbo, Intercooler, exhaust manifold, downpipe, intercooler and intake aluminium piping, silicone couplers, clamps, blow off valve, wastegate, oil lines, flanges for the oil lines and header/downpipe, and some sort of electronics reporgramming.
Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Alek

So that means that the first turbo I noted would be most suitable?!?

And for fuel injectors, would stockers from a SVT do the job or they're still insufficent for a small boost kit, like pushing around 140-150hp at the wheels?

Will look for a td05, but doubt they will import it. These are the ones in stock. Thanks for the advice though,
