You are best off getting the manifold and turbo setup off of a W11 and bolting it on.

That's only the start, how mechanically minded are you?

ive helped with setups but this is my first turbo that ima do myself . jus wanted info on a good kit or setup to start with . thats all really .

i work on cars all the time i went to skool and what not . i understand most of the mechanical things . so it really shouldnt be much a problem

Well, as experience speaks (I'm sure most will agree) if you want it done right, you have to spend the money in the right places.

Easiest route will be getting a motor swap done. A W11 engine swap can be done for around $2500-$3500. This sounds like a lot of money, but it is much easier to do it that way. Replace clutch/axles etc when you do it. Get a JWT computer. Set up your intercooler.

Not cheap by any means, but this will be a sound swap and will be reliable.
