Talking i want power

did a couple of searches and stuff. just wonderin wat kind of turbo kits people recommend for the gda RS. im planning to stick to stock internals and keeping the boost at 5psi or maybe lower, dont wanna blow the motor. are the turbo kits easy to install? i want to save money and do it myself, but i have no experience in turboing a car watsoever. i kno the FAT kits dont require the engine to be lifted. im just wondering if it is relatively easy to install.

Depending on the kit, you will likely need to replace the oil pan (which involves lifting the engine some), or possibly tap the oil pan or one of the valve covers (FAT kit) for an oil return line. You will of course need to do some wiring with your ECU to install your engine management, and possibly install some sensors for your engine management, and for your gauges. Much of the other parts involve bolting things on such as your turbo and exhaust components, but you will also need to splice and connect various vaccum, breather and coolant hoses. This is pretty much the base of what might go into an install.
