Default Boost'* Performance Attempt

I'm a bit crazy these days and plan quite the build up. Some parts I've got already and some are about to be ordered.

Car currently has:
SLP headers
Intense standard PCM
Purrrrfectly matched FIE injectors
Intense (I guess you consider it a race built) transmission with 3.29 gear ratio
Speedo recalibrater
3.4 Pulley
Intense FWI
Intense 180 high flow T stat
Aeroforce Scan Gauge
Optima Red Top battery
Bendix ceramic brake pads/shoes
Bendix brake discs and drums

The car is going to get
PCM Tuner (HP Tuner or DHP)
Cam (Intense S1X or ZZP XP Hot)
105# Valve Springs (97 heads must use 105, instead of LS6)
Valve Spring Retainers
Lifters (stock, low mileage...not the ones currently in my car )
Timing Chain
Timing Chain Dampener
Reuseable rocker arm bolts
Valve Seals
Aluminum Oil Pan (from 2000+ requires different oil pick up tube)
Gen V M90 Supercharger (lightly ported and polished by Purple Dino MS)
Magnetic SC Oil Fill Plug
L67 Modified Intake Manifold (L32 or a modified L67 is required with a Gen V)
NorthStar Throttle Body (75mm unrestricted)
LQ4 Maf Sensor
Wiring Adapters for the sensor and TB
Wheel Speed Sensor Defeat (via switch like SSEiMatt93, most people simply unplug at the track)
Walbro 255L Fuel Pump
Larger Injectors
3.6-? pullies for Intense MPS
Aftermarket Boost Gauge
Timing Commander

Now..for some pictures of the parts I do have.
Gen V

Magnetic SC Plug

NorthStar TB


WSS Defeat Relays (Researching to see if I can do it with one)


Am I missing anything besides brains? Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have everything. did I see cam listed

Stage 2 heads would be nice. If I win the lottery I'll hook you up.

This thing is going to be in the 12s if you dont slow down buddy.

I won't quote you.. .They are much more and since we have the power to search..let'* take a look There they are......$159 a set.

While not a bank breaker, I've had discussions with people running in the 12'* and 13'*...these are just what the Dr. ordered.

If you are going to have the LIM Machined to match for a Gen 5 you might want to get it machined for the LIM to take an intercooler aswell. That way when you do put an intercooler in you won't have to take the LIM out again and get new gaskets, etc. Just get the LIM machined once for both things so you don't have to do things over again later.

LIM has already been matched to the Gen V. No machinist needed in this case, although I do have one on standby. Some of the runners ....uh.. look at the birdie!!!!
