Manifold - the most important part of your turbo setup
Turbo - get one that can be water cooled
Intercooler - the biggest you can afford.
AFPR
Piping
boostgauge

Once everything is installed then you can install a blow off valve. Don't need injectors, same goes for a turbo timer.

Exhaust manifold (custom make one, or use 324td or 524td manifold $?)
Turbo (Garret T-25 turbo from an eclipse, used $120)

turbo timer (Used HKS HKS Turbo Timer Type 1 $100)


Blow-off Valve (turboXS BOV, $200 new $100 used)

Boost gauge ($5 used)

Fuel Management Unit (Cartech FMU, $160 used)


Besides piping and possibly bigger injectors, what is missing? would you need an intercooler (Greddy universal FMIC $250) for a small boost application?

I'm not going the RRFPR route. I hope the fuel pressure will be enough. I'm just going for different injectors and letting the Engine management do the rest (fear not.. it isn't bmw)

Miguel, a T25 if yuo have it, don't use it, it won't work with your displacement... believe me, look for a T3/T4 with a AR. minimus of 60.....

Miguel, I've seen some custom turbos where the car used the stock manifold, but had a Y-Pipe system created for where the manifold meets the main exhaust, and one side of the Y went to a turbo flange. It basically worked the same, except there was no need to modify the manifold
