Banks Turbo

Anyone installed one of these Banks Turbo for the 4.0? If so did you do it yourself? Did it take long? If you didn't do it yourself do you remember what is cost to have it installed?
Either way are you happy with and would you do it again?
I am debating about getting one in the future. I was wondering it it would be worth doing a wrench party or pay and have it done. I like to work on my on vehicle but sometimes it nice to go about your day and have some done for you.
Thanks for the feed back.

I have installed several turbos on Acuras in the past. Problem I ran into was, with the kits I was not happy with the gains. They had to be professionally tuned to get benefit which is $100/hr. Also with a turbo it needs to spool for the power and at low crawling speeds a supercharger or a larger motor is more beneficial. I don't see how anyone could benefit from a turbo on a jeep.....unless you are mud dragging. Just my experience.

MosesTJ made a good point about spooling up which definitely wouldn't be beneficial. Another thing you've got to think about is your internals. How many miles do you have? You go slapping forced induction on anything over 100K and you're going to find out that you need a lot of new seals and possibly bearings and piston rings very quickly. You'll also have to start using premium fuel with a turbo. By the time you invest in all of that you could've had a V8 and been a lot less expensive and mo happy Just my .02
