What all goes into Installing a turbo?

I am interested on installing a turbo on my 2002 3.0 ford ranger. what all goes into installing one? is it just bying the turbo and then bolting it up?

or would it be easier to supercharge?

Fitting a turbo into engine bay is the hard part, and the "plumbing", larger air tubes.

Super charger, IMO, is easier, and has more stable power curve, but is limited in power

This power limit only applies if you are rebuilding the engine to handle extra power from forced induction, for either you need to limit added power so you don't break the stock engine parts.
How much power to add is the question?
And the answer is unknown, when it breaks you know it was too much

Turbos 'spool up' as exhaust flow increases, so there is "turbo lag" before you feel the extra power.
Super chargers have direct RPM power, so very predictable at any RPM
