DIY turbo

I have a 2006 gto six speed. I am going to do a DIY turbo to my car I'm a machinist and can fab and weld i have made many custom parts for cars and boats so I'm not to concerned about that part of it lol it's just the fact that this will be my first turbo build lol. I'm just wondering if there are any of you out there who have done this and can give me any advice on this topic? I'm in the process of gathering up all my parts. I'm only planning on running around 5* of boost in a remote mount system. My main concern that is on my mind tonight is what do I do with my maf? Do I try just pipe that into my charge pipe in roughly the same location that it is in? Now I could be way off here I really have no idea. The closest I have come to a project like this was installing a supercharger on my dads mustang a few weeks ago. I'm young and willing to learn and I know this will be a giant learning curve so just correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks so much
Justin
