My answer will be in accordance to your questions. =]- Yes- Not very hard, as long as you have all the necessary parts.- You will need, turbo exhaust manifold, turbo, downpipe, wastegate, intercooler piping, intercooler, blow-off valve, oil feed line, oil return line, oil feed adapter, (water feed line, water return line, Only if using a ball-bearing turbo) Tuning component, Larger injectors.-,,,,,, Anywhere from $1,500 to $7,000- Again, Yes, it is possible.- You can drive on this set-up with a stock motor just fine as long as you have a GOOD tune, but to be safe, I would upgrade your rod bolts, head studs, valve springs and retainers.- The H22 will be a lot more worth-while- The ports on the 4G63 manifold more than likely won't line up perfectly to the f22 head so I would not waste my time.Turbo is for people who have a lot of knowledge and a lot of money, if you have neither, don't waste your time, it will be a gigantic headache.Good luck =]

Now a days you literally turbo anything with a piston or Rotary engine. But yeah good luck... Do your research cause anyone can slap a turbo on there vehicles but when it come down to it in the end " Do you understand air and fuel ratios?" and would you know how to tune your new set up properly. If not you would most likely spend more money there again to go get it tuned so you don't blow all of your investment.I know how that feels like cause i just sent my block out to get bored and i can't wait to get it back and start assembling the new motor. But have fun and stay safe...
