Can't think of anything without a clue as to your goals. What's your power goals? What do you plan to DO with that power, drag race, autox, fuck around on the streets? If you want a one size fits all option, go buy a greddy or edelbrock kit.

get a Greddy or Edelbrock kit (Greddy - Cheaper; Edelbrock - better)
If you want to learn a lot, and want to HMT a kit, then start reading and researching a LOT...

Thats why I said greddy or edelbrock. If the kit isn't by those guys, you will not be happy. It'll either break or just be... "eh".

Ebay kits are either missing parts that people here would consider essential, or they use dirt cheap parts that break or have to be modified to work. Honestly, if I were you, I'd do some reading and try to get an idea of an HP range you would like. 160-180? 200-220? 250-300? Also, pay attention to spooling. The bigger the turbo, the longer it takes to spool. You don't want to make the mistake of getting a bigger turbo than what fits your goals.

If money is tight...i would recomend not going turbo till you save up more money or get a better job or somthing...it gets expensive rather quickly.

So true... my build started cheap and ended up costing thousands because I wanted to do it all at once...
