You will need injectors and a downpipe also if you dont have eithe of them.

To give you an idea Slow Boy lists a 55lbs/min compressor wheel, whereas a standard 20g turbo comes with 44-46 lbs/min. So gt12 is huge! I mean, Garrett GT30R is 52 lbs/min:eek:
So, to answer your question, I do not think it is a good turbo for a lightly modded car. You will need much bigger injectors, fuel pump, fuel rails, front mount, transmission, clutch, etc.
Hope this helps...

it's far from a bolt on turbo. You should add in considerable cost in your mind for piping, putting on a wastegate, etc.
