Are you buying a full Turbo kit? If not.. you need quite a few things...
Ecu, downpipe, bigger injectors ect.

haha, well yeah, you're going to need ALOT! even though there is no NOS involved, you have to understand that the GTS has a pretty high compression ratio...because of this, you need to really do some work on the internals to strengthen your engine before it can take the added power and stress of a Turbo.

1) I'd go to www.monkeywrenchracing.com and pretty much buy every part they have to build up my internals (rods, lower compression pistons, etc.)

2) I'd get a better braking system, probably a big brake kit (AEM or brembo) because if you're gonna be going fast, you need to be able to stop, hehe.

3) I'd just overall improve everything else on the car as in tires (you're gonna need some better traction if you want to utilize the power best), lightweight parts (Hood, rims), etc...if you're going to put in the money to get a t4 Turbo, you really want to free up all the hp. you can from your car...

our cars (especially the GTS) are not made for Turbos, so to strap a Turbo on them, you really have to know what you're doing because it's a big step...just definately have someone who knows exactly what they're doing guide you...

just my .02

of course there are numerous other parts, I'm not an expert on Turbo kits, so it would be good to talk to someone who really knows what they're talking about...also, these parts aren't completely NECESSARY, but if you really want to do the Turbo rigth, you'd be smart to get these...and this way you can run higher boost than anyone else...btw, if you get the pistons you can choose the compression ratio, you should get 8.8:1

I agree, although if you're not boosting too high, upgraded internals are unnecessary... I'd get them anyway since I have yet to meet someone that stayed at a meager 4-6 psi and never cranked it up at least once

believe me, once you feel the power of the Turbo, you'll be addicted and all you'll want to do is crank it up more and more...

oh, and also, I forgot to mention, if you do get the kit, make sure the actual Turbo comes with certain things...get a huge intercooler because you really want to show it off and because it's one of the most important parts of keeping the Turbo safe...also, get a loud ass blow-off-valve, because in my opinion, that's the most fun part of a Turbo...oh god I love that sound...psssssshhhhhhh
