Updates: The engine has been pulled (some time ago) and is at the shop being rebuilt. I am picking up parts right now. Already have mckeandevr4 rods and a "new" forged crank, just grabbed the 3sx arp girdle stud kit and should be picking up bearings and pistons soon. I plan to use Pampena pistons since I have heard nothing but good things about them. Picked up stock injectors and maf so I can start it and run everything on a stock setup before I reinstall my HKS VPC and go back to speed density.
You might want to think about better gauges if its in the budget. Personally I have the Prosports Premiums and like them....have had zero issues with them and they are affordable. Otherwise I like your choice of components so far....just select your gaskets and seals carefully too....and ditch the phantoms like forest said. Look into a 19T or a DR650 instead.
So I dont know for sure that they are phantoms the previous owner just told me that they are "Turbonetics stage 1 twin-turbos with Super 60-S trim compressor wheels" which I think are phantoms? But noone has referenced them as having a turbonetics wheel in them. I just was wondering if they would damage my engine if I put them on after rebuilding it. If I have isses with them then I am more than willing to look at other options but im just not sure what they are capable of. What issues would I be looking at? Just compressor surge? I appreciate all your help, im just trying to figure out where to go from here since I already have the turbo's.
*UPDATE* The engine is put together, I should be able to pick it up next week. Im currently working on what Im doing for an oil pressure gauge. Im thinking electric so I dont have to mess with oil lines in the passenger compartment.
