P28 with a base tune
noname turbo mani & downpipes

Hks seqq bov

srt4 intercooler
Exedy Stg 2 clutch
New engine gasket set
+ .40 over vitara low comp pistons

adds displacement- faster spool time/ fresh hone/ bore. de-shrouds the valves better . draw back more prone to detonation. weaker dsleeves in theory



--- I would get rid of the air fuel gauge and get a real wideband with gauge. pressure regulator isnt needed unless your maxing out the injectors and you compensate by upping pressure a bit. no name mani? (get a cast iron if so). crower T-2 eh too much lift IMO its more of a top end built drag purpose only cam. i would look into a delta 272 or bisi 2.4 better. i would get a real cam gear if you plan to use one and that also isnt really needed unless you milled your head too much

stock head is good for 400hp // fuel rail// IM . for a stage 2 cam its suggested and recommended you at least get upgraded valve springs.

If you have to ask what your missing, than your not ready to tackle such a task as building a turbo engine. Knowing absolutely what your doing is critical in a successful turbo build. Because with most parts you only get one shot at it befor you have to repurchase the same part.

d series rods are super weak. i'm not a 100% but i think they are good to maybe 200hp.

with 440cc injectors maybe 280hp on a ify tune if your turbo can throw down

i think the 16g max's out around 330 or something

oh and grab a B20 tb if you can there 60mm fuck the skunk2 just match port your stock intake save some money and have one less part some stupid fuck wants to steal

If your going to do a rebuild and take everything aparts I would suggest pistons and rods. Better safe then sorry and that way if you ever want more you don't have to worry about the bottom end strength giving out
