    Why not buy a real turbo kit for that. It will most likely be knock off parts that will fail in a short period of time. Manifold will most likely crack and the turbine is also most likely going to have shaft play in a hurry. Also, the intercooler is most likely poorly assembled and is restrictive.

    Better off with a K20A motor/transmission swap, or a turbo kit that has been tried and proven to work well.

    D series are cool but you're better off with a B or a K as mentioned. If you're gonna spend all the loot, you might as well do it right and get the power.

    If you cant afford a turbo kit and you want boost, go with homemadeturbo.com

    If you can wait, and be able to save up cash. Go with a decent kit. Check out 7th gen.com and see what those guys are running. Go from there.
