turborangerforums.com, anything you need to know will and can be answered there search button makes it very easy. But just for a starter you'll need injectors, pistons&rods, and a tune, blow off valve, turbo manifold, there's a more detailed list on trf

What kinda turbo we talkin. Let us know so me or micheal, can tell you if its will work. 2.5 costs about 2000.00 to do it right. Could be done for less, but for 2000.00 you will have a truck that out performs a 4.0 and can still get 23+ mpg.
