Here is a thread that might help you.

Probably not a good idea to buy that "universal" kit. No doubt there are some things in the kit you could use, but a turbo install in your WJ would have to be a custom installation.

X2 u would pretty much need everything made for you. i was watching a show one time that showed a turbo kit for a corvette where the turbo was mounted out by the muffler and that would seem easier for something like this but it seemed like a lot of work for not much output.

Never buy a Turbo kit off eBay. They are junk. Piping walls are way to thin and blow the welds way too easy. U know th saying don't lift on a budget? Well the same goes to this never boost on a budget. U would end up replace most parts in that whole kit within 6 months. So better off saving ur cash and doing it right... trust me I've been this route... no bueno lol
