Default Hello all, just want to make sure I have my set up correct

So after hours of reading, hours of time and hundreds of dollars spent this is what I have now

93 LNC 1.6
t25 with factory 7psi wastegate
DIY manifold from treadstone performance, cost 220 and you weld it yourself, very strong
custom downpipe
vortech fmu 12 to 1
1.8 tan injectors
FMIC
Tial BOV
MSD timing retarder (retard lol)
Walbro fuel pump
and my base timing is at 12 degrees
does all this seem right?
I did search, believe me, but didnt really know what to search for exactly, i saw other set ups and mine is similur if not the same but just to see if i missed anything, thanks guy!

Most replies will probably say "buy a MegaSquirt" and I agree. But other than that, you will probably need a clutch.

Ahh yes a clutch, didnt think about that. Hopefully it lasts a little while along with my diff. Yeah ill get a standalone when I save up a little more. some people need to remember that you dont always have to go the best most expensive way, "whatever works" <3

thank you for the clutch reminder!!!

Yeah, the 1.6 may or may not last, but that is also depending on how you drive the car.

will I be okay with 12 degrees base timing? msd box pulls 6 degrees and the greddy kit has you retard the timing to 6, so is that compliant?

Megasquirt is by far not the most expensive way. The base greddy kit sets your base timing to 6 degrees from a stock 10. I'm not sure how the MSD timing retarder system works, so I can't fully comment on it.
