Already have:
-exhaust
-intake

Should buy:
-cams
-walbro 255 fuel pump
-head studs
-boost controller
-evo IX turbo / FP Red or green turbo


Find a good tuner. Someone who is actually going to look into your ECU and tune, instead of giving you a tune that was given to someone else. I think I listed all the things that you need. Im sure someone will correct me if I left anything out. A reliable "near" 400 hp car can be done with basic bolt ons. Ive done it and so has another moderator on this forum.

Keep us updated on your progress.

My hoonest opinion would be that those parts shouldnt fail at 400hp. Although it depends on how you drive/launch your car. Your bottom end should be fine. Just make sure that you buy some headstuds. SicLanEvo drove his car way over 100,000 miles and i know that he drove quite spirited. Just make sure that you keep up with maintenance and change your fluids on time, youll be fine.

185k to be correct, with all those mods and a few more on the car for well over 120k. I never had headstuds though, lol. 25psi all day long stock block, head, trans, diffs, and axles!

I was never easy on it, I just stopped launching it after 85k. I drive hard and my daily commute was 100 miles roundtrip on which i did +80mph to and from!

boost control you should do a ecu controlled boost with a 3 port electronic solenoid and a tuner who knows how to adjust it.

also look other places besides lancershop, not a bad vendor but not he best either. checkout speedelement.com , extremeturbosystems.com and there are a million more that are decent and have stuff in stock

I honestly think the ECU controlled boost is the way to go. I love it and wont use anything BUT that. As for cams, im a fan of Kelford or Comp. Preferably Kelford. And if you want to maintain good driveability for everyday driving, id stay with some 272's. MAYBE 280's. You can research the difference in cams though.

Lancershop is ok. Ive bought a couple things from there, but only usually if another site didnt have what I wanted in stock. Machevo.com is another site, and ive actually been to their shop. Theyre good people and have good customer service.
