Depends on your power goals, budget, what you plan to use the car for, etc. Search is good, but if you were more specific then it'd be easier to advise.

You can't just "slap" a turbo kit on and be done. You need the a mani, turbo, intercooler, waste gate, injectors, ecu needs to at least be chipped and tuned, probably a new clutch to hold the additional power, gauges to monitor the engine and boost levels etc.
Figure out a budget and what kind of power you want to make and go from there. RESEARCH everything and you'll be fine. Good luck

based on my experience you have a solid 4-6 months of good searching to do unless you want to go with a premade solution from one of the site sponsors.
not even. about 1hr and you can find tons of peoples builds that match what you want and just copy and paste :D

buy really this thread should be closed the op hasnt replied back and its pointsless since this question gets asked jsut about once a week

I agree with bradg. It was a little over a year from start to finish for my first engine build and turbo install. That was including engine management, switching from a Y7 IM to Y8, wiring and plumbing. Research! I did and it went very smooth for my first build. Got most of the info from here too. :)

What are your power goals??
Is the motor stock?
It's usually cheaper and better to pice together your own "kit" then to buy a pre made one that may no be the best for your goals.
- took me 2 years to research and build my motor!
