I am currently looking at fitting a Garrett T3 turbo to my 4.0L 97' el falcon. I am just wandering what other steps i am goin to have to take in doing this. eg. modifactions to computer? will the current injectors and fuel pump be alright or will they have to be upgraded for more fuel flow? etc, etc. The car currently has 198000 km's under its belt, therefore is the engine and 4 speed auto gearbox going to be able to handle the turbo or am i just going to do more damage than it is worth. Any help on this subject would be appreciated. The turbo will only be running around 3-4 psi of boost.

Milage doesn't seem to matter just condition of engine...
A T3 is realy to small..A Gt 30/40 go real well on these..
Well tuned a turbo motor should be more reliable..
Nearly every truck out there has a turbo these days...
