Planning a turbo install help

I'm looking into getting a '97 2.3L ranger and I would like to put a turbo on it. I've been doing research but still have questions. I need the truck to be reliable and still get good gas mileage. I planning on running low boost to help with reliability and mileage.

I would like to get the T3/T4 hybrid and exhaust manifold off a svo stang

I've read some conflicting information about the stock injectors, fuel pump, and mass air sensor. Can I get away with running the stock ones for now and upgrade them later?

As for the tune I already have a SCT x-3 tuner for my '02 4.0L would I be able to get a tune made and reflash with it?

Will I need to get a blow off valve and/or a waste gate?

Is there anything else I will need?

I'm trying to keep this as cheap as I can for now.

Stock injectors won't work get a set at the junk yard off an excursion. Make sure they are yellow top. They'll be 21 lb/[email protected] 45psi fuel pressure @65psi they'll be 25 lb/hr which is a nice change from the 14 lb/hr stock injectors. You'll have to run some type of piggyback to watch for boost pressure and change ignition timing accordingly. Do yourself a favor and get a turbo that has a internal waste gate and recurculation valve. I'm actually in the middle of putting my kit together on my 99 2.5. let you know how it goes
