    Too big? I thought T3/T4 was perfect for D's. Yea you should be able to bolt the kit on yourself. It looks completely bolt-on so you shouldn't have to fab anything except an exhaust system I'd buy a high-flow cat and exhaust system to go with it if you don't already have. If you already have that, then it's as simple as reading instructions and bolting everything up but remember you're not using the same header/exhaust manifold so you might have to do a little work with the exhaust and a muffler shop would probably do it for under $100.

    Tuning... I would only run a little boost before getting it tuned. You're looking at probably at least $80 per hour for dyno tuning. Since it's a y8, I'd tune for 200-250 whp, 250 to the wheels is what I've heard to be the max in a d16z6 and the y8 is next generation so I'd say maybe a little over 250 whp max not sure I'd go with 220 to be safe :).
