It is a TSI kit. It works well, but required considerable modification to get it right.
If you want a turbo, I would recommend the Aerocharger.
If you want a Supercharger, I would recommend a Mountain Performance kit.

You bet!
Here is a picture of my Turbo relocation project on the RZR. It shows the view that would be most like your Ranger project.

Although the picture doesn't show it, the oil return hose clamps onto a modified oil dipstick tube. You basically need to get a similar sized piece of tube and graft it into the stock dipstick tube in a "Y" configuration. Make sure you do the connection as low as possible so the oil has a good grade to flow down to the return. You don't want it to back up at all! If you get ANY backup in the return line that backs up oil into the turbo it will smoke like crazy out the tail pipe as the oil squeezes out the turbos bearings.

You also need to make sure you restrict the oil flow going TO the turbo just a little bit. If you just have a gusher of oil going IN to the turbo, it will have a much greater chance of backing up in the line when you climb steep hills. Then it will smoke as the oil squeezes past the turbos bearings.

I didn't know about restricting the flow of oil going into the turbo at the time I did this project, so I ended up using an oil return pump after I took this picture.

Hope this helps.

They sell all kinds of GPS mounting hardware. Just tell them what kind of GPS you have.
