A good HPFP to start with. Once you get a good lift pump on there you need gauges. Then a boost elbow and BHAF.

I like gauge pods better...i was wondering what the best combo would be as far as chips to get the best of both worlds to get mileage and power and to have a gauge pod

You have a good combination already.

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!!
