Looks like you got all the right parts so far.
3" exhaust is somthing to look into!
Staying with the stock stall?

Just make sure you changes the bolts for new bolts while you are at it!

Sounds like this will be a rocket & a half when it's running. Good luck with it dude.

Cheers

Yeh the stock stall is a good idea imo.
Good to see your not going with a malpassi reg aswell!
I made 221rwkw with a 2.5" exhaust but that was with a 3" dump pipe,Im sure it had abit more in it befor i went to 3" all the way aswell.

I bought mine turbo but came across a few problems once i bougth it.
My malpassi fuel reg stuffed up so i just went back a stock one,My return line from the turbo melted and the clutch didnt last very long. With a good tune the car should last a while,Plus it seems you have all the right stuff

The only thing I'm worried about is the head blowing. I havnt decided yet whether I'm going to change the head gasket now , or take a chance and see if it blows lol . But if I change it I'll get a ticky head .

I havnt had any drama with my head gasket and im making 240rwkw hopefuly 270rwkw in a few weeks.
But im also using a AU motor and as sexyr6 there gaskets are better.
Personally i wouldnt bother changing it,Theres plenty on people making nice power on a stock gasket,But im a lazy C*** so its up to you lol
