Don't get Tomei valve springs, they're made out of a child's faeces, get BC or Supertech.

Don't get Procams, where's @Piggaz? Lol

Don't get a Ross trigger kit, get the Platinum Racing one.

Don't get the Platinum Pro, go Elite 2000 or 2500 (more features and inputs/outputs)

I was thinking Ferrea valve springs and valves before.

Which cams would you suggest then?

I prefer the Ross over Platinum Racing because the sensor mount looks more stock and the wiring isn’t just sticking towards front of the car

I already have the Haltech Platinum Pro Plug-In for running a few years already.

Not uncommon for stock bottom end gtrs to make 700hp. Why go to the trouble of 2.8?

Big turbo. Big fuel setup. 700 here we come.

Indeed.  When 3.4 is a tried and tested option.

Billet block questionable value or purpose at that hp level.  Would look at the Kulig bottom end bracing kit for sure though.

Yeah go with those springs OR BC or Supertech, the Tomei rubbish will give you nothing but issues when you start feeding in boost.

CAMS, give Kelford a call/e-mail and tell them what you're doing - I have no faith in those brappy Tomei cams, many have ended up putting in stock cams and/or switched to much lower duration cams so power band is much more usable.

Looks don't mean much, however the PRP kits use cherry sensors and can be fitted to any crank damper/pulley unlike the Ross kits.

Also if you decide to get the PRP you can't use the Haltech Platinum Pro as you can't unlock the trigger settings haha..


Lastly,  why Tomei pump when a Nitto pump can be had? Since you're going Nitto most things, might as well get a Nitto pump.

I noticed the word "Tomei" often repeated in that list as well as GReddy/TRUST way too many times 😅😅😅

Yes it will but if you ever get to drive a 2.8 you’ll agree that it’s money well spent 

 

if mine lets go the first thing on the shopping list will be a stroker kit

He probably got discounted shit, just an advertising platform.
You can't go that fast in car parks anyway.

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned the Tomei exhaust? I thought they were noisy but restrictive?

Yea I have emailed Kelford already waiting for their reply.

I guess I have to stick with Ross kit unless I switch ECU then

Yea been thinking either Tomei or Nitto for oil pump. Seems more people have used Tomei that’s all.

Reason for Tomei Exhaust is seems like they are the biggest size exhaust that’s off the shelf avaliable and decently priced. Local exhaust shop here is crap so custom make one isn’t an option, can’t accept those Workmanship on my car.

Reason for quite some Greddy/Trust parts is because I bought the car with everything Greddy/Trust installed and unless it’s critical I guess I will keep them.
