Default Finishing up my setup... Missing anything?

So far I have...

- Garrett 2052 w/ manifold (no idea on brand)
- Intercooler
- Silicone piping ( for intercooler... I bought this part as a kit, was expecting hardlines, got silicone. :( )
- Full lines/fittings
- BOV
- Downpipe
- Megasquirt (version 1 revision 3 i think?)
- Innovative LC-1
- Boost controller

So that means I still need...

- Injectors (i'm thinking RX7 n/a or ol' 7MGTE Supra injectors?)
- IAT (for megasquirt)

I'm shooting to start with 5psi of boost until I figure out this whole tuning thing.

Also, sorry for if this is the worst post ever I'll go away and you can delete the post. :[
