post up a link, but chances are its a small cheap turbo and will require a lot of custom fabrication.

Here's some of the kits you want to look for.....

Focus Power
Focus Sport
CFM (Central Florida MotorSports)
Precision Turbo

Most "JDM" or "universal" turbo kits are even worth looking at... way to much modification to do to get them to fit correctly.

just a few things i noticed... universal my butt
turbo manifold? good bov? piping that will actually work on the car (no j bends in kit, hose elbows)? by the time you purchase the above needed items, you could have bought one of the above kits that actually fits. You want cheap, buy cheap... it gets expensive. And hose elbows are a no-no on the boost side, the less connections that can fail the better

well i know some one that put the e-bay turbo on his car and long story short it was down for several months and he had to re do the entire kit. the only thing left was the turbo and manifold. the rest he made or had made. go with a name brand..
