^^my turbo kit was 500 said and done with basically all new parts. You just have to know where to source your stuff.
Goodluck man. You will enjoy it. We have a stock ls motor that had a 57 trim kit on it and dropped it in a gutted eg matched to a b16 trans an equal length manifold and a 50 trim. At 20psi bone stock it did 380 with a bomb ass powerband. Breakin free at 80mph plus bro. Rapin carbbed 1000's

stock rail and regulator are fine to over 400whp....why waste the money.....and the only reason to get an adjustable fpr is to up the rail pressure and push the injectors farther than they should......however your 440cc inj with flow more than the stock block could hold.

Ya a stock block ls at 380. Did I studder? Lol.

Stock gsr on gt30r on 18psi did 450 on 91. At 11psi did 330's

Now the car with the ls is on 24psi stock engine and backed the boost down until the track day comes up so 15 for now.

You don't need a rail or reg right now. A pump for your injectors would be a better idea.

well i got a few minor updates i scored a duckbill, lip, mud flaps, and media console, witch relocates my head unit down and i plan on putting my gauges in were the old one went so i don't have that ugly pod thing on the side. Also for a turbo i decided to try to find a used gt28 or gt35

Dont rush your turbo choice. Shop around, you'd be suprized what pops up...Collect all your little things you'll need. They always seem to be the last minute pain in the ass parts to find....All in all should be a reliable set up. GL meng, keep us posted. Dont forget how much we all love pics ;)
