You might have better luck getting an answer if you say for what car you are looking for and perhaps some details of what is done to that car already.

I have an On3 Turbo kit on my 92 5.0. It is actually easy to change the sparkplugs. Just remove the intake pipe, 2 clamps, remove the downpipe, 2 Vband clamps and then its just like changing plugs on an NA car.

The kit was $1,780 with the oil filter relocation kit and exhaust y pipe. The only thing needed is a 255 fuel pump, MAF and matching injectors. And of course a tune.

I installed it myself. I would recommend purchasing the MAF and injectors from on3, I think there about $400 more. The install was relatively easy with only minor modifications necessary but it is time consuming. If you cant afford to have your car off the street for a couple weeks you may want to consider a simple vortech or paxton base model supercharger instead.

I hate to say this but if the OP is nervous about the ease of changing plugs and wants someone else to do the install, a turbo may not be right for him. A supercharger is a simpler install and more "kit like" than the turbo kits which may take some fabrication to get to work.

Just read for about 6 months and piece it together yourself. It took me about 9 mos of reading and parts gathering and another 6 mos of ass chasing, but in the end my POS mustang beat a crotch rocket from a roll and does a sweet burnout (2.2 60').

The turbo does kill the mustang sound. It just sounds like a V8. Mine has a glasspack and open wastegate so it is loud...kinda.
