turbo help

I have a 2001 lexus is300 bone stock, I am set on buying the cheapest turbo kit and eventually replacing it for a better, non chinese, turbo. So I needed to know what else would I need to buy with it? I was told injectors and fuel pump, but what size injectors, was also told ecu, but what ecu would get the job done? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you....

Save your money till you can afford the real deal. You'll save time and money in the long run. Search and read up in the go faster pages from this forum. Turbos are no walk in the park...

I just turbo'd my car last year and the 1400 cxracing kit just scratches the surface. You need fuel pumps, fuel hangar, fuel lines, gauges, computer, wiring, clutch components, eventually engine, tuner, dyno, brakes. I am well over 10k with full engine build since i spun bearings at 8 psi. GOOD LUCK nothing is cheap with the IS300 , Lol

^^ That's cheap. I had more than that back in the day in a stock gte/r154 swap. Labor was half of it.
