Dude, you can also go here.

Mr. Kriz has done a wonderful job of documenting the NA-T process with this car and has done an even better job of putting the car together. You may want to read up on his site also.

I think you should swap the entire engine for a 7M-GTE - Lots of tuning, money and work to put together a 7M-GE turbo, regardless of if you swap electronics or not - that high compression is tonnes of trouble... You can get a really good condition 7M-GTE w\ turbo for under a grand - spend another 1 or 2 thousand to have it freshened up (new bearings, gaskets, water/oil pumps, etc - MHG) before you drop it in, and you'll have lots of trouble-free, boostin' miles ahead of you.

Well, first off, find out EXACTLY what he's doing for you - What has been done to this engine, is it brand new from Toyota, or is it a JDM engine? If so,w hat has been done to rebuild it? Does that price include EVERYthing for the swap? b/c you'll need a new harness, a new tranny, new clutch assembly, new exhuast system, etc, etc...
