While I don't know much about the turbo kit itself, you need to prep the whole car in general, especially if you up the boost.

After the whole package of the turbo kit, you will have to set up a budget for the following: fuel management, engine internal to support high boost, suspension components, brake components, and your drivetrain.

I see most turbo kits on the market for around $3K. After the turbo, most likely you will have alot of non-turbo related upgrades you will have to work on, so set aside a fair budget for your project and have fun.

you might want to upgrade the oil pump to a type r or after market pump for the turbo, and depending on the miles make sure things like water pump, etc. are taken care before you go boosting your car. im in the same boat, i just need to get some piping and a waste gate. good luck man!!!

Nah man, it's good to get info from a variety of reputable sources to determine which parts and setups are truly effective. Merely going to one of the sites is only a start. I would still suggest checking with local shops and also asking more in depth questions about the specifics of your desired setup.
