Just spoke with XS Power, Ill be doing their full turbo kit for this build along with a manage ultimate and injectors (Not sure on the cc yet)
Ill be updating this build as I go and will put plenty of the photos up of the turbo kit for others who are on the fence. The goal here is a nice reliable boosted is300 that i can drive every day anywhere

Update: Dropped off my block and head at Apex Engineering in Bensenville IL yesterday. This guy is the 2J King around here everyone whos doing a build used him. He had 4 2J blocks a couple gte blocks and one 1J even. Should hear from him in a week of so to see hot to block and crank checks out.
Here's whats going in the block
GTE Pistons ( Newish they were out of a brand new assembled short block)
GTE Rods (New)
Clevite Racing 77 bearings and thrust washers
As for the head
New Valve Seals
Everything is going to be gone through and checked to make sure things such as engine deck,head deck,cam lobes, etc is in proper specs if something is off it will be replaced with new.
Once the engine is built it will be checked for squish and quench from that point ill decide to use the ge or the gte head gasket.
Sound performance uses apex to do the machining on their blocks. If you can't put the motor together years elf then yeah use sp but apex puts the bottom end to make it a short block
Call apex as talk to bill tell him nick referred you and he will help you out. I have done a lot of blocks with him.
Actually I'm not 100% on xs power yet. Iv built my own kit before and I just don't feel its worth the savings.The amount of time spent on intercooler piping and fabrication isn't worth it. Id rather but a "ebay kit" keep the manifold which is a copy of the Turboeast original, keep intercooler piping and upgrade the turbo, wastegate and bov. Still save over srt and other.
