Default found a turbo kit for a 2.3L?

http://www.xs-power.com/ford-turbokits-2.htm

With this kit, would this be all I need to turbo charge my truck? Idk it just seems a little too good to be true, and would there be anything else i would need to do?

----------

....this already seems like its gonna be more work than i really wanna deal with haha

You will also need to have your exhaust ran from the hot side of the turbo back. Add a TEE fitting at your oil pressure sender to run the oil line to the turbo. Drill and add the fitting to your oil pan for the oil return.
couple other small details here and there.
you can run 5-7 psi on stock internals provided everything is in good shape.
You would need fuel tuning for sure.
I guess the easy answer for your question is:

With this kit, would this be all I need to turbo charge my truck? NO But it is a good start.

would there be anything else i would need to do? OH YES!

I would recommend some research here : http://www.turborangerforums.com/index.php

thanks for your help guys, i think im just going to wise up and keep my truck the way it is (for the most part) haha and either get another ranger to mod the crap out of or get me something that will have crazy huge horsepower and crazy low gas mileage lol
