If I can offer my best advice about that kit, I recommend against it. Unless you are a fabricator or work at a performance shop, and have good access to the tools and materials needed to adapt that kit to your truck.

If you are dead set on doing it, I can tell you what needs to be done. Be prepared to spend some monetary to get it Right though.

Stainless steel flex coupling (turbo lined), so the exhaust can flex. Flange to bolt up to your Y-pipe, if not a vband flange. If his tubing is rusted, changing it out to at least 304 stainless, on the exhaust side. They like to have mild steel on the intake side too, so there is potential for rust to be in those tubes as well. Which would be best upgraded to aluminum.

Vacuum lines, and possibly new hose for the oil feed and drain.

Material to make a snorkel for the turbo inlet. Hydro locking creates a long spiralling build......

Injectors, and fuel pump. EMS to tune it in properly. That basically sums it it.
