Got water and oil pumps, chain tensioner kit, new bolts for everything, new sprockets, sump sealent just need the spacer plate and arp head studs and hopefully a bargain on x beam rods and I can tackle the engine block
Forgot also new piston rings and just need to get some bearing and that’s should be it for the engine Internals

SP oil filter house is nice design but expensive plus heard of some being badly machined. Just fit a sandwich plate with oil cooler. if your worried about oil contamination just fit an inline oil filter. Standard fuel rail flow just as much as the 034 model. Only reason to change really is you can fit fuel pressure gauges etc easier or like in my case i run two fuel line up to the fuel rail with fuel coming in both end and the return line in the middle.

Best speak to who ever is going to map the car really on maf size. GT35 is 40 year old design now so pay a bit extra and get a gtx35 or the BW airwerks sxe turbo`s are very good for the money as they use the erf wheels but half the price of a erf turbo.

Never had anything to do with SX3 stuff. The main thing that seems to effect turbo spool and power graph is the A/R size and if T4 or T3.

Few questions I have.
Can the crank pulley be taken out with out the speacial tool?
Is crank balancing needed/ worth the cost ?
What gap should the new rings be gapped to?
Will be ordering new super tech valves and a fluidampr crank pully (no sure about the lightweight cts one anyone used one?)
Any other engine part upgrades
After months of nothing it’s finally happening can’t wait to get it road worthy again
