97 cobra thinking of switch to turbo ..

Ok guys engine is out getting built so I can pursue my goal of 600rwhp pushing thru my little s trim. I had a local cobra guy offer me his new turbo hot side for $300. Pretty nice setup. I already have a nice intercooler , Tial BOV, and cold side setup on my car as it stands.

So if I was to proceed and buy his setup. I know I'd need a turbo which I'd probably end up with a 70mm or 76mm . Also need a wastegate ? Drain and supply oil lines ? What else would I need to get it in and going ? Also downpipe from turbo to cat back .

Think I could get that hot side and associated parts for a grand or less? Just curious before I like my credit card go stupid . Hahaha.

It will depend on what turbo you buy. Wastegate as well. It sounds like you have most of the supporting mods so it wouldn't be out of the question

my biggest complication is finding someone to fabricate piping from turbo downpipe to the existing cat back. My area sucks for fabricators
