Turbo is wrong, you want internal wastegate.
downpipe flange is junk, thin metal, will likely crack, and wrong angle, will need to be chopped off, and re aimed and added onto.
no such thing as T25 intercooler, its all just bent pipes, as long at they connect to the turbo that all that matters.
you need a BOV, ive had good luck with ebay greddy ssqv knockoff, worked fine.
good choice on FF640 injectors and ms3.
If I can get 80% of the performance from eBay for 50% of the cost, I'm probably going to go with eBay.
Crap, I knew I needed an internal WG but overlooked it on the EMUSA turbo.
Maybe I'll just get a T3 flange and have the local muffler shop weld up the piping and include a flex joint to make it less likely to crack.
Thanks for your replies!

It's not just about performance. It's about reliability and support.

You asked about BEGI. I have a BEGI kit for sale. You should buy it.

It was inevitable. You should know that by now!

"I know eBay parts are unsupported and unreliable and will probably crack and several vendors have solved those problems, but can you help me pick out some eBay parts and make them work according to my cognitive dissonance?"

You should do one for budgeting big power now. So folks know what to expect and the expense.
