- Steel for intercooler piping
- Oil Lines
- Boost Guage
- Air fuel ratio Guage
- Fuel Pump (WHICH FUEL PUMP?) Walbro or Bosch???
- Hi flow 3 inch cat, ill be using the 2.5inch exhaust i have on there until i feel the need to upgrade.
- Haltech Interceptor ECU
- 42lb Bosch injectors
- BOV


What things am i missing that i will need before it all goes in, such as vaccum hoses etc.?

Yes, you don't really really need a wideband o2 unless you plan on driving it untuned or tuning it yourself.
Depending on your tuner he might not even use the stock o2 sensor, some don't like closed loop.

AFR gauge is going to be borderline useless with the stock o2 sensor though. If you all you want it for is to have another gauge it'll be fine though.

what does a wideband O2 sensor actually do.
How much will one of these set me back if the tuner doesnt want to use the stock one.

a wide band o2 sensors tells you the exact A/F ratio. 12.5/14.6 etc
the std one in the falcon's are not - they just tell the ECU if the AFR is Rich, Correct or Lean

they are a couple of hundred bucks

Your tuner won't require you to get one, anyone with a dyno has a wideband o2 sensor, its what they'll stick up your tailpipe when they are tuning it.

-Vacuum hoses for boost controller/gauge
-T-piece for oil feed
-Correct fittings for oil feed line
-Good heat resistant pipe for oil return

Walbro pump is fine, but if you want to spend extra you can get the bosch, i've had good experiances with walbro, and some of my mates have had good experiances with both.

That's all I can think of atm. Will post more later if I remember anything.

I remembered some stuff (after going through the list from when I done my old EA :P):

-If your moving your battery for your intake pipe you'll need a battery box, distribution block, and some thick cable.

-Exhaust sealant, that orange stuff works good forgot the brand now :S

i used 3/16" (iirc) fuel line for the WG hose... i need better s**t... this s**t tends to crack (baked on) if you try to manouvre it (on the parts its on the gate and front of turbo)

so i need to find something better


now injectors, not sure... i bought them off a mate... its almost like custom injectors. seem like EB/D based injectors (in size), with a custom fuel rail end bit
