Turbo on bone stock 5.0....what am I gonna need..

Ok getting closer to getting this done. I have a bone stock 91 5-speed with 86k on it. Ive done the h,c,i on my prior stang. This time I want to put a turbo kit on the stock engine to start. What am I going to need other than the turbo kit? Car already has a 3.27 gear and 255 fuel pump. What kind of fuel system and management should I be looking at? Throttle body, MAF, intake upgrades?

u dont have to upgrade too much. U can get a 70mm mass air meter to match the tubing goin to the intake,also will need a blow thru mass air meter,and a mail tune like a sct flip switch where u can have up to 4 tunes on stock computer or get a PMS,or any stand alone computer. U will need either 42lb or 60lb injectors. I have brand new 60lb injectors if intereted let me know.

If cheap is the goal you don't need aftermarket fuel management or any of that. All you need is injectors, 42lb are standard for stockish 302, blow through MAF, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and a wideband.

92 GT Hatch - GT40P, F303, Headers, H-Pipe, 3:55s etc.

I would at the very least get a set of 42# injector and matching maf. 255 fuel pump and an upgraded coil. Then take it to a dyno tuner. Stay away from mail order tunes and trying to tune it with just fuel pressure. Do it right the first time.

TWIN TURBO!! Because bottles are for babies and superchargers blow

No mail order tune, take it to have it dyno tuned. You only need a wideband and afpr if your tuning it yourself. The Wideband is a good idea to keep an eye on things but not a must with a dynotune. Stock fuel reg is 1:1 referenced
