Start (like the greddy) with relieve cuts on the manifold.
The HKS is not known to crack, but better save then sorry...
Everything you need to know is on the greddy faq.
To manage the turbo: retard timing to 6 degrees (instead of 10)
Run a fuel management unit like the Vortech or the begi.(the HKS FCON is not a nice unit anyway)
Monitor max boost (must not exceed 6psi)
COSTS: 50-100 dollar (ebay,or here)
The turbo is plug n play , very easy setup, a bit more work then replacing the exhaust manifold.
Be sure the turboset is a 1.8 (pics will be handy here..)
As you have a 95 you could run into 1 problem , the oil adapter... It might be not available on your engine... (95 is the year they stopped putting the oil port there... You might be lucky)
Look on the passenger side (right hand drive)
(exhaust side) down at the dipstick (where it enters the block).
At the left side (10cm) there must be 2 bolds (1 oil and 1 water) oil is the smaller one... If it is not there , order a oil line from flyingmiata.(EDIT)Could be that the oil suply is disigned for the cold side, this eliminates this problem...
COST if not lucky: 100dollar
HKs returns the oil through the dipstick... If you did not get the HKS dipstick, just tap the oil pan. order also @ FM
COSTS 50 dolllar (drill , tap, oil return nipple)
But show us some pics of the enginebay oil port and the whole kit.
(i know how a complete set loooks like).
Be happy to help you out.
Are you handy enough to replace the manifold yourself?? (if not, add 100-200 dollar)
