i have no idea what turbo that is but putting a turbo on anything is no easy task. you can save some money by fabbing a lot of your own parts such as headers and cold side piping. you still need to be a decent fabricator otherwise you will end up with a lot of scrap metal and wasted time. if money were no concern then you probably wouldnt even be asking questions. the truck would already be at a shop having a "kit" installed. so, what are your skills, budget and ultimate goal for this truck ?

i would recommend just finding a complete kit made for the vehicle (most likely being a supercharger). when starting from scratch like that with an unfamiliar part to that vehicle, you now open books that have not been written so your basically at a trial and error stage with many dollars dumped into dyno time and tuning just to make it work, and thats aside from the $800+ custom header setup. also, 15psi on a bike motor would make next to no boost on a 4.0 ford. also it would be highly restrictive on the exhaust side.
