But take the butchers (me) word for it, there is no way that turbo is quality. You truly will get what you pay for when it comes to this type of stuff.

Even an engine under only light boost requires a system for cooling the lubricating oil and upgraded piston crowns, exhaust valves and valve seats. Intercooled turbo engines require additional plumbing, whilst highly tuned turbocharged engines will require extensive upgrades to their lubrication, cooling and breathing systems.
Turbocharger parts are costly to add to naturally aspirated engines.
-Blades are not "cut", and they are not set at certain angles for the engine. You pick a turbo based on the requirements set forth by your engine. Turbo's are not designed for one specific engine. In fact given two identical engines with different mods, two different turbo's could be necessary, and possibly neither one could work efficiently on the other engine.
-No additional oil cooling is necessarily required either, my 2.3T does not have an additional oil cooler. Has yet to have a oil control problem running 20PSI either.
-Please define light boost. To me, light boost is <5PSI, a completely stock 2.5L can take that with out problems assuming the tune is dead on.

If I were starting this project, I would look at a Borg Warner KKK series, and look at getting 2 small turbos. Thats just me though. But the torque curve of the K03 series is a good fit.
-I...uhhhh....what? I think you don't know what you're talking about
Turbo's this size are a normal upgrade for the 2.3T's, hell guys run way larger turbo's and get them to spool ~2500RPM. I have a dodge Cummins Holset HY35 turbo to go on my 2.3T. How much you want to bet I'll have that thing singing 20+ PSI by 2800RPM? Oh, and Rangers rev up 6250RPM, but RPM is not what spools a turbo, its air flow and heat.
-KKK's are way out of the efficiency range for these engines. They'll work, for a short period of time if you want your power band to be off idle to ~3500RPM. Not very practicle if you're wanting a real turbo engine.
-2 turbo's? On a four cylinder??? Come on now.
