hello people, i just bought a t25 turbo/bov/side mount ic/ hx manifold and custom down pipe for $200 from a friend who had it on his crx, and blew the motor with it.(it wasnt tuned) .

I want to do turbo install myself, but i've never done it before, and need to know what else is needed, and where i can purchase parts, such as oil feed/return lines. I already bought a 255 walbro fuel pump, and was told i could keep my stock injectors. Should i buy some 330cc?Also i know nothing about a t25 other than the cfm and specs, but what psi is the internal wastegate set at?

another thing, my friend can make custom intercooler piping, but he needs the turbo and ic on the car, and he would need the car at his house wich is 30min away. So how do i go about that situation?? would the drive down there with the turbo on do damage to the exhaust fin??

also i have a tuner that can tune it with crome, so once the intercooler piping is done and its all hooked up, would it be ok to drive to his house to tune it? I just want to be extra cautious.

Last thing, would a front mount intercooler make a big difference in IAT over the side mount? I would like to keep side mount to keep the car sleeperish, and hopefully keep thieves away, but if it makes big difference then i wll go w/ front mount.

as for chrome. a basemap and drive to the tuner will solve the problem.
