Question turbo kit for 2000 Nissan Frontier 2.4L

I bought the turbo kit from cxracing and I was going to put it all together but I don't know much about turbos and was wondering if I could get any advice on what else I would need to do for the kit to be successful. Thanks for the help!

You'll also need a way to tune the truck to work with the turbo kit. An aftermarket ECU or some sort of piggyback EFI box. Along with those there will be a good bit of wiring or you'll need to get a premade wiring harness. You'll also need a custom exhaust built from the downpipe back. Including a professional tune I would plan on at least spending another $1500 (maybe more) in addition to the turbo kit you already purchased.

I’ve played with turbos for a long time. It would be better to understand what you need and are doing, rather than asking for a parts list. I say this because you can literally grenade your engine within the first few minutes of operation when you finish the install.

The link above has all the info you might need. My suggestion is figure out your tuning solution first, be it Megasquirt or chip tune from one of the reputable vendors.
