You need a built motor and cams to spool it'Qwikly";) Better yet you need a smaller turbo. Big is not always better, Impresssing people by saying you have a t78 means nothing when hondas that are turbo'd blow buy that lagg monster. IF you really want to know what you need to get this going study how to make power with this car, and you won't need to ask this question. Why would you buy anything for your car and not research what you are getting into. Imho you need to first find oyt how turbos work, and then find out how they work in reference to your car. With what you have a bolt on turbo is all that will work at this point!

i agree with QWIKSTRIKE, that turbo is too big for what you have, do you even have a mhg? because without one of those i wouldnt run a turbo that big. unless you are getting this for an awesome price, turn it down, and either save up for more internal upgrades

thats a pretty damn good deal..if i were you i would be tempted to buy it, you always could, then just not install it untill your ready and have the required mods. Do you have any other internal mods? If you run low boost you will be able to run it with tons of lag lol

A vital step would be learning to read compressor maps and calculating how your motor would perform with a given turbo. Like others, I'm inclined to say that that turbo is too big for your motor. But depending on how good a deal you're getting on that package, I'd pick it up, sell off the snail, and get something better suited for the 7M...

The only thing I can think that you will need is a custom downpipe, and some kind of adpter for the accordian pipe to fit onto the turbo. Its going to be somewhat laggy since most T78's have a .96 A/R(I beleive) and are a big 67mm turbo. But I would think that you should be able to run at least 17psi with out running out of fuel.
