Default Best build threads for a noob?

Hey MT, I'm planning a DIY turbo build for my '02. I've been lurking for a while, but I'd love some direction. My plans involve a DIY fab, no-innovation-required, readily available used turbo, build for 250whp. What are the best build threads to check out? I'm going to start with engine management (MS3) while I plan out the turbo setup.

I didn't build an 02, but i did NA8 swap a 91 with a complete DIY turbo setup and MS.

Quick, easy 3 page read.

DIY is really pretty simple. Especially at 250hp.

There is a lot to be learned by the mistakes and victories of others. Some of the threads listed above are hilarious at times and worth reading just for amusement value.
