Default Build: Im an idiot and keep changing my setup

IM GOING TO TURBO MY CAR.
She was supercharged on an MP62 BRP kit. But uhhh, yeah.
I had the opportunity to purchase a new EFR 6258 and some bits.
---
Current configuration:
CP 9:1 pistons, Pauter Rods,BE Oil Pump, and FM2 Happy Meal, MS3, Wally 255
Need to do's:
Pull the engine and tap the pan because I'm silly and didn't do it from the get-go, fuel system/Flex Sensor/Injectors, weld AN fittings to the valve cover for proper crankcase ventilation
Thoughts:
Square top intake manifold? 3.6 rear end? d585 spark setup? Oil temp sensor bung in oil pan?

10/2 I am sourcing fuel system components as I feel that it can be done more cost effectively than dropping a G$ on FM Big Fuel kit.

You don't have to pull engine to tap the pan. Drill, Tap, Clean (Flush), JB Weld. Been done hundreds of times.
If you do pull the engine, do the re-route work with it out.
If you do pull the engine, consider welding a bung into which you can then thread either a nipple or a -10AN fitting, and be able to replace it if needed in the future. Also consider that you have more choices of location. Also consider a bung for an oil temp sensor.

Although it sounds like, from First Post, that you've had it out and apart before.

Thats a good idea with the oil temp sensor. My plan is for sure to weld a bung. I am too sketched out by drilling and tapping the pan with the engine in the car.

Thank you for the additional bung idea!

Where are you located in WI? Is that Brooke's "old" turbo setup? I just recognized the RA cart track. Haven't been there since the re-pave. Look forward to seeing you around and what you do with the car

Yep its her "old/new/didn't install" setup. I drove down to Wi Dells Saturday to sell my supercharger stuff, drove straight to Famous Daves to meet up to get dindin and buy this stuff.
