what all goes into a turbo install? besides having a turbo and a manifold built to fit the turbo?

jackhurdle,

It all depends on how much boost you want to run and the power your looking to acheive. To run high boost the internals of your motor will need to be upgraded to handle the additional heat and cylinder pressure created. If you are looking for high power then various components of the drivetrain will need to be upgraded. To run the setup as a low to medium boost setup the way most people do you will also need an intercooler to keep heat down which means you will need piping bent to run from the turbo to the intercooler and from the intercooler to the throttle body you will need a blow off valve to release the charge when the throttle plate is closed to prevent compressor surge. Now you've taken care of the heat issue next you have to avoid detonation which means you need a stoichometric air/fuel ratio for this various upgrades to the fuel system need to be made. If you are serious about doing this upgrade a good way to go about it is to consult someone who has good experience in turbo charging. If you cant find someone near you email me I can give you some suggestions. The thing about forced induction is that it requires a large amount of component to be well tuned to get the proper results if you speak with an expert give him your power goal and the level your willing to spend to get there and they could pick out a great setup for you.

Pick up the book Maximum Boost by Corkey Bell. It will be the best $20 you ever spent on a car mod (If you plan on going turbo).

It will answer all of your questions, and teach you a lot in the process.
