Phase 2: GD3 Turbo Build

Planning ahead, as I like to do, I'll be picking a spare L15A sometime next year (April/May most likely) and building that up on the side.

Parts I'll be looking at include the following:

-LSD, need input on which brand to choose please...Going for a gear type instead of the clutch type.

-Rods, Pauter? K1? What else is available? Been out of the scene for a bit

-Pistons, I'm thinking CP or Wiseco.

-Bearings, Clevite or ACL?

-Head studs, bolts, etc. ARP?

-Head gasket, OEM.

-Cam? Only thing I've seen is Bisimoto and JUN...

-Valve springs and retainers? Bisimoto again I'm guessing?

-Port and polish

-Cryo treatment on the camshaft.

-New intercooler (different size and core type)

Sticking with the TD04L and upping the boost Might change the turbo then but I'd like to see how far the TD04 can go. At this point I may have to look at running a full standalone system, probably gonna go with AEM.

If I've left anything out please let me know, just thinking off the top of my head here.

PS, current set up:

RDX 410cc injectors
AEM water/meth
AEM FI/C
Walbro 255l/ph
Log manifold (ceramic coated)
TD04L + turbo blanket
63mm stainless exhaust (1box), cat delete/down pipe.

Budget, goal and power considerations in place this is what my shopping list looks like:

-Kaaz LSD 1.5 way Super-Q
-K1 Rods
-CP pistons (coated)
-Clevite bearings (rod and mains + treatment)
-Innovate Street Spec Engine Mounts
-AEM Series-2 engine management
-Velocity stack
-Consumables (gaskets, oil, filters, etc.)

Aiming for 12psi/0.8bar boost on the TD04, stock sleeves should be up to task, expecting anywhere from 160-200wkw/218-272whp.
