You could do it but it wont handle too much boost. Maybe 5-7 lbs max.

i would set that up like ford does there powerstrokes. route the exhaust through the back of the motor to the turbo, and make a custom intake manifold for it. i think that would be awesome if it were possible. that 3.0 wouldnt be so slow lol

you gunna need more than just a turbo intercooler and headers my friend. To start on the hotside your gunna need to find a place to mount it. Your also gunna have to have a crossover where both sides of the motors exhaust come in before the turbo to keep the flow equal. Then you will need to buy a wastgate to control the boost and fab up a downpipe coming off the turbo. Also will have to look at new mufflers cause anything chambered will kill a turbo motor. Then on the cold side you'll obviously need some intercooler piping and a bov. Now if you wanna run an open bov then you are gunna have to look into a blow through maf setup. You could always use a draw through maf but you would have to run a reciprocating bov. (lammme) The once you got the boostd air to the manifold your gunna need a diffrent upper intake cause i do not see that plastic one taking boost very well(just sayin) and your gunna need a fuel injector and fuel pump upgrade to compensate for the added air. Then its gunna need tuned....

Have fun :)

don't be discouraged, these are not problems, only opportunities! First mod. buy a wide band O2. then you can monitor your performance to judge what fuel mods and tuning is necessary. I did a lot of mods to increase fuel on my car at the advice of others only to find out the car ran rich. The wide band, unfortunately my last mod, really would have told the true story all along and perhaps saved me a lot of money and work.
