to prepare my engine

Ive already talked to tom about his kit . I posted along time ago . What I was wondering is there anything I really need to do to my motor to prepare it for the turbo . And I was also wondering , I have a 4-1 race header on it right now . Does his kit come with something to replace it . I know it comes with a turbo header but what about after that . My header came with the flex pipe combo. Is that what the down pipe is for . And what about my o2 sensors is there going to be something that they will screw into ? Or will I have to buy a high flow cat or something.

Toms kit is complete, yes your race header will be replaced.

Adding stronger internals to your engine is a great idea, however money may be the problem.

Okay but what about the o2 sensors. I dont want to hang in space . does the down pipe have holes for the sensors. And also I was talking to tom here on this site he told me That as long as I didnt go higher than 220 hp My bottom end would be fine.
