So I need advice on my turbo build. I shooting for 200whp on mostly stock internals. I know the obvious things I'll need, such as a turbo, intercooler, wastegate, etc. I'm on somewhat of a budget, and i'd love to hear advice of people with experience with this.

budget and boost arent meant to be in the same sentence.

read this and plan your build: http://www.d-series.org/forums/diy-forum/166555-diy-building-your-dream-car-101-a.html
I realize haha, when I say I'm on a budget I still want quality parts that fit my build, but not things that will go overboard. For example I don't think buying a 2000 dollar turbo good for 500hp would really be necessary for my build when I'm only looking for around 200hp, if that makes sense. Thanks for the advice.

Hmm where to begin. The biggest cost saver would probably be labor. Will you be doing all the work yourself?

Shit I'm contemplating selling my greddy 15 g kit and that will get you to 200hp.
Absolutely. I've always been a diy kind of guy. Only time my car ever visits any shop is for stuff I can't do myself (due to lack of specialty tools or etc) such as mounting tires to rims.

ARP head studs is a must when going turbo.

Look into getting some good injectors like bosch EV14 from Hiprofile, I have his 800cc.

X2. $400 wet kit. $80 fuel pump. $20 cold plugs. $50 to get the tank filled. 200whp at the flip of a switch.
the zex dry kit i used to run was setup for a 55 and if i felt the need a 75 shot. the kit i had self tuned to bottle pressure by adjusting fuel pressure. never had any problems running the kit for 2 years until i got rid of the car.

yes, definitely need injectors, fuel pump and a tune. Also on there I'd add some suspension parts.

Like the zex kit . really simple to install. Dry kit with fuel controlled by ecu is what I always advice folks to run. Simplest to install and u don't have to worry about a fuel ssolenoid failing.
