Default Mazdaspeed setup on base NB?

Just wondering if it can be done? I have about everything from a mazdaspeed in my dinning room right now. I just put on the Bloush upgraded turbo, an FM downpipe, and will be adding the FM full intake next week. So in light of this, was wondering what I should do with the rest of the stuff. I mean, I've about everything except the boost control solenoid, 1 or 2 intake pipes, and as far as I can see thats all. Manifold, stock turbo, stock down pipe, IC, oiling lines, most all the intake and IC pipes, and the soon the stock intake. So... I was wondering if anyone's tried putting this on a stock 1.8 so I could possible try it on my buddy's 2000 or sell it if not. He has a black 2000 1.8 auto. The only thing I know I'd need is a Man/electronic boost controller and some misc. silicon pipe and clamps. Thanks for the input all, I'll get some pics on monday if I can. Here it is with the parts I'm installing. The upgrades will be replaced w/stock parts. Name:  275707152_933033854_0.jpg

Should bolt right on. No reason it won't as its the same motor. Oil feed/drain might be different is all.

Yea, I do know my block is tapped. So we'd need to tap the oil pan, right?
