the oil that is used the lubricate a turbo comes from the engine oil pan. you'll need to have some way of supplying that oil to the turbo. i don't know of anything else that will need to be adjusted.

When I had an '88 7.3 Deiselmann told me to get the motor checked over ... compression, bearing life, rings, water pump, oil pump,all gaskets, et al to see if they would hold up to the power of the turbo. Then find 1 to fit .....

just turn the injector pump up to get a more even mixture of fuel and air. the more air and compresion you have the more fuel you can burn and the more power you can make.
