That's a resonable budget if you're doing the work yourself.

I built from stage 2:

To get the most out of the turbo, run E85, or go bigger than a VF52 or 16g, you'll need fueling upgrades:
DeatchWerks DW65c fuel pump - $150
650-850cc injectors - $450 to $600 (depending on fuel)

There are lots of additional upgrades with marginal improvements at this level, those are all kinda up to you.

I think I wound up at about $2100 for my stage 2 to 3 upgrade.
I don't think you have to break-in a turbo, but someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I didn't do anything special for break-in.
