Also if the turbo does not clear the first runner you can add another t4 flange to raise the turbo higher. For suspension.. well i guess stock is cool if your just going straight anyways lol or try looking into "grixxer-drew setup" it's basically billstien shocks with quality springs and coils. Don't go fully hard and agressive coilovers like stance or bc racing since I'm sure you will need that weight transfer that normal spring and shocks give you to put that power down to the floor.

what throttle body are you going to use with that FFIM? I was thinking about getting it as well for when I go turbo, but I don't know what throttle body to use!

If youre aiming for 9's, you need a drag coil setup. Youll regret not doing that.

You will also likely need/want to do some head work to help spool that turbo (springs, retainers, guides, maybe even +1valves)

That much psi and e85 is a bad idea if you dont build the bottom end. You will bend rods.

Other than that, I think it sounds good.

You need lots of little (AND BIG) things to hit 9's.

interesting, i seen and heard guys running stock suspension with no problem and cutting 1.4xx 60.

as far as head work, ill be running webcams 272 cams with springs and retainers and ill be squeezing out the hole to spool the turbo up.

my friend did 10.1 on his bone stock na-t sc300 with a 6265 with th400 he was also tuned on e85. the old owner did high 9 with the same motor.
