The paint is left over aircraft paint that was headed for the garbage. A friend works for PPG Aerospace. The gray is left over from one of BMW's corporate jets.

The turbo is an IHI VJ14 hotside and cartridge with T-Bird VC30 compressor. It spools fairly quick and is currently boosting to 15PSI, but it doesn't have a large flow volume.
A few additional details are as follows:
*SSAutochrome Knock-off GReddy Turbo Manifold
*Homebrew Manifold to Turbo Adaptor Plate
*Modified Volvo 740 Intercooler
*Homebrew Intercooler Piping
*Volvo 740 Radiator and Overflow Tank
*1987 Mazda 626 Thermostat Housing
*Mercury Capri XR2 Injectors
*Homebrew Downpipe with Divorced Waste Gate
*Megasquirt I w/ V3.0 board - full standalone.
