    Yes you will...

    To fit a Garrett you'll need the turbe, a manifold, new dump pipe, oil lines, water lines, hoses to match up to turbo intake and outlet, pressure feed for solinoid and a way to control boost like an external boost controller or specific remap...

    Fitting a Garrett isnt simple.

    Manifold is first youll need. If your running GT28RS youll need T3 flange. Then youll need a downpipe to suit may need Vband, 4bolt discharge...

    then as said, water lines, oil lines, oil restrictor. boost controller of some kind.
