Question T4 T70 installation help

Hey so im pretty much a begginer when it comes to cars so i need some help. I have a 2002 3.8L v6 base Mustang. I want to put on a T4 T70 Turbocharger on it.(I know its not the best but thats what i can afford) So what i am wondering is what else i would have to get with it so my my car isnt damaged and it works right. So manifolds, piping, everything i would need. Thanks

Wrong section. Try this link or the Power Adders forum.

I would recommend against a turbo setup if you are a beginner. They are the least reliable most complicated power adder. If you don't have a pretty good idea what you're doing, you're going to be paying a lot of for someone else to maintain the car, and you won't know enough to know if they even know what they're doing.

Cutting your teeth on an old v8 muscle car is one of the best ways to learn. Preferably something old enough that you don't need to worry about Cali emissions.

What you gain by going that way is an understanding that will answer the question you asked, without even needing to have ever touched a turbo car. The fact is turbo, supercharged, nitrous, or N/A, all engines need the same supporting equipment for their power levels or they'll get hurt.
