with a fmu you can run 20psi but be sure to hook it up to your vacuum actuator.

what car kind of car are you looking to turbo?

some of the things that are prety basic that you are gonna need..
-turbo( to build boost ...lol)
-exhaust manifold (made for ur turbo aplication)
-oil lines pressure and drain(to lubricate the turbo)
-bigger injectors( a turbo'd car needs more fuel)
-Blow off valve( helps reduce compressor surge)
-wastegate if u have a turbo without an internal wastegate( will help regulate the amount of boost u wanna run)
-Intercooler( to help reduce intake air temp)

you will probably have to get your ecu chipped/tuned... because of the forced air induction that the turbo creates you need more fuel, and need to reprogram the cars computer so that it can run properly..

there is many other lil things u may need or want also..

If you wanna do this right, and produce big power, use a FMU with a minimum of 27psi and a 50/50 mix of gas and diesel. The trick is to put the O2 sensor in the location of your PCV. Then plug the o2 hole with a old spark plug. You will have to get a long plug wire off of a K truck and only plug wire 1. It's pretty long, that's what she said. Hack that right into spark plug wire 3. Then drill a 3 inch self tapping screw through the pcm at 1inch from the top and 1 inch from the left. This will help in and grounding issues should the coil over coil. Last thing, should the 50/50 mix have a slight idle issue just remove some of the gas out of the diesel... that usually does the trick.
