Hi

As you are a novice, fitting a turbo to a N/A engine is not a task I suggest you undertake yet. Spend a couple of years learning about cars, engines and working on them. Start off with simple jobs like air intakes and exhaust changes then strip and rebuild a few engines, upgrading camshafts and cylinder heads etc before even thinking about attempting an ambitious job like this. This isn't a job I would take on lightly (actually, I wouldn't bother turbocharging a N/A engine but that is beside the point) and I have been playing with cars and engines for over 40 years.

Don't try to run before you have even learnt to walk, you will fall over and hurt yourself :)

This is no doubt not what you wanted to hear, but it is the best advice I can give you. If you chose to ignore it start a build thread on here and we will do our best to help.
