Good luck Tim. From all my research (as I want to turbo mine too at some point) there is no "kit" so you will need to find all the pieces yourself.

You can find a turbo manifold for the G13B, but all the intercooler piping, boost controller, ECU etc you will need to get. Lots of choice for the turbo itself and I am sure there will be some people who might chime in.

Hey Howsie

It doesn't actually look too hard to sort out all the bits, the manifold is the biggest issue with clearance over the engine mount but from what I have read so far a simple log style should suffice. I will make one up. It will be ugly but should work.
Td04 looks like the go at the moment.

What setup are you looking at?

I do not know yet. I'll make it all up to suit the engine. It has been done many times before and you will find all sorts of recommendations for turbo size etc on here.

All the supporting mods are easy, the 2 biggest things are manifold and turbo choice.

TD04 is just a model name. A bit like saying "I'm going to buy a Suzuki". There are so many to choose from. Do the math and work out what size A/F ratio will work best for the car, this will set how soon boost comes in, what area of the engine rev range you want the power etc.

Sure, there are some kits on Ebay, the chinese made manifolds and that. I am not sure if they are tight enough to clear the front bar or not.
