I'm not really seeing how?
You don't really have to fab anything other than the harmonic balancer for the supercharged route?
Turbo, you have the rear manifold, crossover, DP, charge piping, etc.
I mean i guess it'* all the same if you have someone do it but not everyone can fab up all that exhaust piping.

We had pretty easy access to fab up the piping.
Because we were trying to keep costs down, the car was only worked on when the shop wasn't busy, so it took about 4 months to fully complete. Mind you the car wasn't in the shop for the entire 4 months, but in & out very frequently.

The install thread can be found here:
