    a shit load of time to install
    and then about a summer to tune it properly

    then you'll need another 40-50 hours for bitching time on here so all I gots to say is good luck
    Nothing better than a road with curves and a 300 ft drop to your right

    Ahahaha.... you have no idea what you're getting into!

    Why the hell are you changing the starter?
    Don't buy a EIP kit. They are shit and you will never get your parts. I'm still waiting for some part of the kit that I started with 3 years ago.
    Don't use head bolts. Use APR studs. This goes for the bottom end too.
    Have fun paying for SS bigger valves.
    LSD alone will set you back $1500 or so.
    I don't see pistons on your list.
    I don't see oil cooler or intercooler on that list.

    you can add this list to your turbo 'subheading' there may be some overlap with what you've already posted

    -turbo
    -manifold
    -BOV
    -intercooler
    -Downpipe
    -SDS (or other fueling control ie chip, FMU, megasquirt, etc)
    -intercooler piping (with fittings to accommodate, BOV, ISV, MAF)(depending on setup)
    -piping connectors (rubber/silicone thingys and the clamps)(straights and elbows)
    -boost controller (can be ManualBC or $$electronic)
    -oil feed line (and perhaps an oil restrictor too)
    -oil drain line
    -oilpan (or fitting to be installed)
    -depending on the turbo, coolant in/out lines
    -depending on the turbo you may need an external wastgate (which means the appropriate manifold as well as a dump tube that preferably connects to your exuast/downpipe)
    -cone filter for turbo intake
    -colder sparkplugs
    -gaskets
    -hardware (nuts/bolts/etc)
    -somthing to deal with your PCV valve either a hose/catchcan/filter (or all of them)
    -vacuum hose
    -gauges IMO: boost/Airfuel/EGT/oil pressure (and maybe: fuel pressure/oil temp too)

    optional:
    -turbo timer
    -oil cooler
    -depending on what type of SDS: you might want a boost ignition retarder too (MSD boost timing master) extra or larger fuel injectors,

    I don't think your budget is big enough for your wish list

    goodluck with the project

    Guys Guys Guys. I work for Linamar. They have all the machines and tools for me to make Bigger SS Valves and maybe pistons (working on it). On Top of that down the street is a machine shop that is going to help with some machining. I got some good connections. But money comes money goes this is going to be a 7 month project. 600 a month is 4200 to spend, I sure I will spend more but when you love cars and building shit with your hands price don't matter. Some stuff on the list is pure gravy like LSD, but all in good time!

    Got to start some day

    Eh, It better to try hard and fail, then never try at all.

    If I start this project I am sure shit will hit the fan, but with the good help from every one on GenDUB, I will have a TURBO 2.OL VDUB

    good luck on the turbo. I gave up on my turbo vr. Took me aroudn 100hours of research time and then 40hours or so installing the whole thing and having the pipes custom made to fit.

    Might want to look into the ATP kit. Heard it's quite good for the 2.0.
