It's usually best to do your research prior to buying something then after you have already bought it.
As far as the install goes, for me it's as easy as changing your oil, but a little more time consuming...for you? I have no idea because I have no idea how techincal you are, read the directions then decide if you feel comfortable doing such task.

im good at reading and following directions. i installed exhaust, hearders, changed brakes, springs. but this is more complex.

The only part that may be of issue is welding for the oil return line, the rest is as easy as doing what you've already done....bolting things together tightening connectors etc.... pretty basic if you really think about it...it's just a lot of steps so most people get discouraged because it seems complex

If it's a kit, then you should be fine. Nothing to it at all. The hardest part on any turbo install (kits) is the oil lines. And that shit is not even hard at all. Just gets time consuming sometimes. A quicker solution to that is not use a T fitting for the feed line. Use a block adapter instead.
