Default Is my setup ready to go?

Well, I think I have finally come to an end in sorting out my complete system. I'm ready to start working on it and I want to run everything by you guys to make sure I'm on the right track.

My goal is to get this damn thing done. Maybe 200hp, anything higher is great. I don't want a full out race car, I do DD the car in the summer, but I'm willing to get close.

93 1.6, long nose, 64K, good comp #'s, everything checks out fine.
no A/C, PS will be removed

Things installed
Greddy manifold & turbo.
Braided feed and return, tapped pan
Turbo Tony dp, full 2.5" exhaust, dynomax turbo muffler
Dual feed rail
Starion intercooler
Innovate WB
Turbo XS typeS BOV


Things to be installed
Stripes intercooler pipes
1.8 open rear end
MSnS- Kingof1337 setup


Things I'm researching
Injectors (460 or 5xx)
Intercooler (size)
GodSpeed rad
clutch (upgrade to 1.8 or keep 1.6, brand etc.)


I THINK thats everything. Again, any advice anyone can give me is appreciated. I'm hoping to finish it this year.

No opinions? I'm ready to go? I just don't want to finish to remember something that would have been easier a few steps back.

Stripes = best greddy pipes made so far. Around the radiator, tig welds. I can't wait to install it.

Starion = ******* stupid ghetto setup*. Under the radiator, Radiator hose couplers and JB weld. Can't wait to get it off.



*If this is all you can afford, I don't mean to offend. I started out with it to. On a side note, anyone want to buy my starion kit? It has some upgrades, silicon couplers, BOV bung. PM me.
