Get a Fuel pressure gauge as soon as you can, most importand to the long life of your VP$$ (injection pump). You need to be running between 15 to 20 psi at idle and no less than 10 psi at WOT (Wide Open throttle).

Definitely need a fuel system first!! check out airdog or fass. Will help you out in the long run and will let u throw more power to er without an issue. Then Get u some injectors, 100-150 with stock turbo. Injectors will go a long way with your set up... Need to get gauges before the injectors though, keep an eye on egt, fuel psi, boost. Those are the main ones:.... Most of all have fun with it and make it your own!!
