First off the items you have listed are rather generic, in order to help you better please defind the details of the parts you have listed there. In other words, you can't expect to just "get" a turbo and expect it to work for what you want.. Are you doing a stock rebuild? If you are you won't be able to run more than 6 lbs of boost on pump gas if you are. A blow through setup is best for streetable use vs. draw through. You'll need to cut into your oil pan for the oil return line. A rising rate fuel pressure regulator helps. A boost controller. A BOV (blow-off valve) is needed. Depending on your skill level, a mega-squirt injection system would be the cheapest route for decent fuel control. All in all you could build a good turbo setup for a little less than $2500.
