Default Confused about Fuel Management

Guys I'm on a tight budget. Heck I don't even have much money right now (highschool student.. I'm going to be working this summer).
I've got a 1994 GMC Sonoma 2.2L 134CI engine and a 5 speed manual trans. Its OBD1.
I'm planning on getting a used turbo. Gunna get a cheaper intercooler from ebay, same with a blow off (if not I'll get a BOV from a eclipse).
I have to make a custom exhaust to mount the turbo.
Considering a "up pipe" header like this.

I don't have air conditioning. Gunna have to wrap cables and I'm worried about it melting my belt. I'm going to convert to an electric fan.
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do for fuel management. This part confuses me on this truck.
I could possibly run 2.4L cavalier injectors, but I dont know how to tune it and such. Don't know what to do really. Making the kit and making it fit is no problem.
The closest dyno is 7 hours away so I'd take a trip to get it dialed in.

I've heard about megasquirt but I dunno.. I've never tuned anything with a computer before, and it kinda.. scares me lol.

Would one of these work?

If by "work" you mean "blow your motor", then sure.

I agree on this route, Craig has come by the dyno a few times with dometic vehicles. Each time making spot on tuning utilizing EFILive.
