Default Newb needs assistance wth turbo kit

This is my first post other than my greeting post. I will try and be as specific as I can.

I have a 91 1.6L with a 3 core mishimoto radiator and fan shroud kit. 6 speed mazdaspeed trans, stage 3 6 puck act clutch and 10lb flywheel, 1.8 Torsen II 4.1 lsd with driveshaft. I believe I have enough supporting mods to reliably do a turbo build. On to what I have and what I plan to get:
I bought a used greddy kit for 300 bucks. Kit came with turbo, manifold, ss oil lines, fmu, 375cc injectors, greddy down pipe, waste gate.

What I plan to get:
Ms2 ecu
Mishimoto fmic
Cxracing piping kit
Not using the 375cc injectors and instead get 460cc injectors from an FC
Adjustable fuel pressure regulator
Fuel rail adapter/nipple
Aem wideband
Gm map sensor
Maf delete kit
Turbo rebuild
All new gaskets
Begi greddy down pipe
Possibly a new manifold the one that came with the kit was cracked and then repaired and the welds don't look very good so if I can't find one I will have it fixed again
Turbo timer
Manual boost controller
Atmospheric bov
IAT
Dyno tune at church automotive
3' inch exhaust

My goal is to run 200rwhp on 10psi and have seen someone else on this forum do just that with a very similar set up. The car is my daily and will need to be reliable and I do plan to track it. I am really pushing to get it done before mazfest on August 24th so I can track it.

My questions:
Is there anything else I am missing that would help a lot, cost is a big thing at this point especially after I buy the rest of the items above so I am on a budget.

I plan to put the map sensor right before the throttle body on the cold side of the innercooler piping. If I do that where are good efficient places to put my IAT and BOV?

If anyone has or knows someone with a begi greddy downpipe for sale I am 100% interested!

Thanks in advanced for any help provided

HOLY ******* ****.

We're just racking them up and knocking them down tonight, eh?

Do these kids even read the stickies? Isn't that why they were witten, to keep these types of bullshit "how do I tie my shoe" questions to a minimum?

Maybe the mods can set it up so that for the first 30 days after registering, noobs can't post, only read the stickies.

What would be cool is if the "new thread" button redirected all noobs to a post with all the stickies.

*face palm* I was searching the wrong key words the entire time. I have answered my own map and IAT and bov questions. Thank you for the post u made me search one last time. I apologize for my stupidity. However, I do have a question I can't seem to find a straight answer for which is, will my stock fuel pump flow enough to run this kind of power and boost? If not will it work for a few months until I can afford a decent pump?

If you ever have to ask this, the answer is NO. Do it right the first time.

The answers really are out there. And chances are you will learn a **** ton more when you search on your own since you end up reading more. Believe in yourself. YOU CAN DO IT.

lol @ atmospheric bov... It's a bit redundant.

The atmospheric bov I said that to let you know what I plan to run. But in all honesty you all have actually helped me considering how I have been using google instead of the forum search engine and I wasn't getting very useful information. Guess it took the initial *** beating to finally get me to use the forum properly. Thanks.

Dude, read the search thread I linked you. The search engine is perfectly capable.

HOLD IT.

You're being polite and agreeable. You're supposed to tell us that we know nothing, you know everything, you have a 2000HP Supra and we're all just haters.

Yeah I'm not going to make more of an *** of myself because I got butt hurt that you all are being "********" when I asked a stupid question. I just looked more and more into the ms that I had already planned to order tomorrow and really didn't know it did as much as it does. Quite incredible and I can't see why anyone would struggle trying to run a stock ecu if you can get a ms2 for 280 and have someone put it together for you if you feel incapable.

Just do your research and you will be golden. Take your time and make sure you order the right things and you will have a great build before you know it. The turbo setups on this site vary from the complete DIY, to kits like FM and Begi, to budget greddy setups. There is plenty of information for any build you want. Read the stickies and if you don't understand something THEN ask. But be prepared to get made fun of a little, or a lot. But it's the internet, not exactly srs business.
