Default Can Someone Check This Over Before I Install?

Hi guys,

I've got all the parts I need to turbo the car now, but the problem is that it's my daily driver, so can't really afford much downtime due to me overlooking something.

So it's a 1.8 Eunos, and I've already installed the Megasquirt and all is well.

I need to install:

* Drill and tap manifold for M10 studs
* Fit Manifold (FM cast)
* Turbo (GTI-R T28)
* Oil feed (M10x1.5 for engine block to an oil restrictor sized m11x1.0)
* Drill and Tap sump, fit hose barb + JB Weld
* Oil drain (I have a straight oil drain outlet, and high temp hose which will fit onto hose barb.)
* Water feed
* Water drain
* Intercooler piping
* Intercooler
* Clutch
* Injectors
* Drill and tap I/C piping post intercooler then run silicone hose to MBC then actuator.
* Silicon hose to Boost gauge

At that point I need to trailer the car to the exhaust place who will:

Weld the Intercooler piping together to minimize leaks and add outlet for the idle pipe(?) and BOV.
They're also going to make me a wide *** downpipe and weld a bung on for the wideband sensor. Oh and make me a de-cat.

Is there any little things I have overlooked to get me up and running?

Thanks for the input.
