Killer B Holly Header w/V-band up-pipe DEI Titanium Wrapped,
Grimmspeed Catted Limited downpipe
Grimmspeed Turbo Heat Shield
Cobb Catback exhaust
IAG TGV deletes w/phenolic spacers
KSTech air injection deletes
ETS TMIC
DW 65C Fuel pump
Cobb Fuel Pressure Regulator Kit
Grimmspeed 3-Port boost solenoid
Perrin Turbo 2.4 inlet
Grimmspeed Cold air intake

I have a designated race car a MY95 GF with an EJ255 swap so my goals for this car are purely as a street car that's reliable and makes a bit more power than I'm seeing now. Oh and E85 is not available locally.

Here is my current plan and I'm open to any input:

IAG Stage 2 Tuff short block
ARP head studs
OEM Engine Gasket kit
1000cc injectors by ?
Group N motor Mounts
Killer B oil pickup and Baffle
Factory water pump cast blades style, part number ?
Factory Timing belt with Gates component kit
Blouch Dominator 1.5XT-R 8 or 10? coat it or turbo blanket?
ACT clutch kit either Heavy duty or Xtreme Duty Street?
IAG or Killer B AOS

Might be forgetting something or not even aware of something.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Joshua


Pics for fun
Go for iag aos street series.
Get id1300s
Get the dom 1.5xtr in a 10cm with a 3 inch inlet.
Get the perrin 3 inch turbo inlet tube
Get the aem 320 e85 lph pump instead of dw65c.
If you have a little extra, get a meth kit and speed density kit and tune on sd.

I have your exact build as of this moment. My rotated setup will be in shortly.

Car is done and working it's way through the break-in mileage. I did end up going with OEM water pump, gating timing kit with racing belt, oem thermostat and the Koyo Radiator.

I wish someone had mentioned how out of spec the valves would be. My local Subaru shop said every engine build gets a valve job because even the 30k engines will be on the very tight end of spec. So I had to have a valve job done on the heads. I'll update once I can make some power, 400 miles left.
