Default 1.6 BEGi Turbo Prepping

Just picked up a used BEGi turbo kit for my 90' Miata. Will begin the process once I pick up a Megasquirt in about a week or so. Pics will be uploaded when process has begun.

What I have so far,
Garrett 2554 Turbocharger
BEGi Manifold
BEGi Downpipe
eBay Intercooler (Will upgrade to a Mishimoto IC eventually)
Auto Meter Boost Gauge
Innovative Motorsports Wideband
RX7 550cc Injectors
Mishimoto Radiator (Already installed but upgrading my fan shroud to the slim shroud soon)

I will be replacing my timing belt,water pump & seals before I begin boosting as well as upgrading my mounts to the megan racing mounts. Any other things I should be worried about before I begin the process or any tips you guys can give me would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Not too sure on the Megan mounts, but fab9 have a pretty sweet deal on the solid mounts. My old setup, I went with the mazda comp mounts from 949 racing.

Don't forget to replace the clutch.
Coolant reroute would be a good investment too.
