It cost $50.00 used.
Go get a takeoff 930 turbocharger, W/G, intercooler, exhaust headpipe. Lots around and the component matching is already done. Sure you can spend more but benefits rarely go up in proportion to the extra money spent.
Several years down the road you can upgrade each as you understand their interactions and what you want to accomplish with your engine.

Yeah my thought too for the most part but I would shoot for the k27-7200
