Bare minimum would be a turbo with internal gate, manifold to suit, piping from turbo to throttle body and from turbo to exhaust, water and oil lines. Filter to suit.

How well doing just that would work would be interesting.

no offence but what is it with ppl trying to boost their falcons for next to nothing.
yeh sure you can do it on the cheap but it will be exactly that. CHEAP and Nasty. If your lucky you will be fully sick for a few days before it goes bang.

if done smart, cheap and nasty can last.
but if you don't know anything about turbo'ing a car then don't expect to get away with it cheap and have a reliable car.

you're gonna need some decent computer - otherwise you'll run way lean and kill everything.
if you don't do it properly you'll just f**k everything. save till you can do it right, or don't bother.

Have a chat to Geoff from Snort performance, he has been in the game turboing falcon for years now. He will be able to give you some straight advice on what to do, and what not to do..

coz some people dont have bottomless bank accounts

no offence but zoom magazine would disagree, using 2nd hand turbos and manifolds etc, done cheap they torbo charged a stock ED Gli and got a good hard 30 000 kms out of it, then sold it in good working order

any how, i see you have an EF your motor would probably be fresh enough for it as long as you trans isnt slipping (if auto) then you have a good base for nice turbo build

I think the only way poeple will ever realize that you cant do it cheaply is to have a go and do it... then find out the hard way when the motor starts to run like crap and drop a few cyl's.

If it was cheap, EVERYONE on this forum would do it
