if you were on a budget, what parts could you get to build a turbo? this could include stuff from a junkyard, low boost so you wouldnt have to crack open the engine. something similiar to matrix's stage one kit but pull the parts together yourself. what would you need?

I've been watching these kind of posts alot lately, one of my friends is sort of coaxing me (it will be at least 2 years if I go turbo)
you could start off with some flanges, an exhaust manifold, and some welding rods, then get an exhaust shop to make a downpipe.
you could get a scirocco intake, or use the stock one, I don't know much about this though, maybe someone could explain the easiest way to plumb the piping http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/nabilsx/vwp?.dir=/Turbo+Cordoba/EVO+III&.dnm=New+16VT+engine.jpg&.srch&.view=t&.hires=t
