Default turbo newbie!

I can get my hands on a KKK03 for free. Its from an Audi 1.8T. Errr... wat can I do with it, and what would be involved from goin N/A to turbo? At most, I would like to run 5 lbs of boost. Just a nice little low-pressure spool to help it. Nothing insane. I am getting a S-AFC anywayz this week. What else would I need in terms of management/pipes/turbo peripherals (wastegate, BOV, intercooler, etc)? Thanks a lot. I know this is a semi-broad question.. but i'm clueless on turbos.

Dont waste your money on an SAFC, the 00+ ECU learns back over the SAFC corrections, you need whats refered to as a Zener Diode, or a voltage clamp.
As for the Turbo, that little turbo will be sorta worthless on your car, it will have super fast spool up, but reach an inefficeint speed before you get any real power from it. Your better off getting a kit. look in teh classifieds for Shiv's kit..
