I would recommend you go to a good shop and have them install and tune for you. The tune would require some dyno time and involves changing engine parameters like spark, air/fuel mixture, boost through the computer so you can make good power SAFELY. It'll cost a good amount of money. Figure $1000 as a baseline, plus or minus a couple hundred. Just remember you get what you pay for.

If you get a Turbo kit I can get you a good safe tune for 450.00 + the cost of the xcal and it will be done by email so you wont have to go to the dyno unless you want to

I too must say get a kit from Tom, His DIY kit will get you a good base for a kit and you have plenty of options from there.
