Fuel pump; Walbro GSS342 255lph
Fuel Injectors; Subaru STI "Pinks"
Fuel Pressure Regulator; any will work provided that its rated for the proper pressure, I am using a FUELab regulator with a gauge mounted on the regulator and all -6 push lock hoses.
ECU; Motec, halltech, aem. Motec will have the proper harness and be plug and play
Wideband; pick a color, I am using an AEM but I don't really care for it.
Pistons; JE 8.4:1 or 8.6:1 if you want to use pump gas.
Connecting rods: Crower (beefy) or Carillo (lighter than the crowers but still beefy)
Valves; APE or Kibble White ZX12R
Valve Springs; Carpenter 65# (what I use) or something else
Retainers; If you want them, APE or Kibble white

I'll go for this setup, and start ordering this week
I have Shaby's turbo ski to finish first, and then I'll start the 15F
Thanks a lot for everything It really helps!

Let me know if you have any other questions. Plan on running around 50-60 psi of fuel pressure, I prefer to use a rising rate with a boosted motor if starting from scratch.

Yes! That's the pressure we started with while tuning Shaby's FZR. We first started around 52psi. We now are around 45 (I think, haven't seen this ski since a while.. lol to much work on his other one )
Thanks a lot, anyway I'm looking at everything you told me to buy for this build, and getting the list ready! subtotal keeps rising.. and rising.. and rising..! lool
Just to make sure I order the right stuff.. are these the right parts ?
Valve springs (#CARP1009 for 65psi):
Valves (#40-40766 for the exhaust and #40-40762 for the intake):
I can also order everything from Kibblewhite (the sell a complete valve spring kit, with retainers, etc..) :
What do you think is the best ?
(Sorry, I first sent it to you using PM but I think it could help other people if we keep talking on the thread )

Christmas time (again) Xavier...?

Looking forward to see the monster

9.5:1 will run pump gas over here just fine....... anything below 9:1 will be dog laggy and shit under boost and no amount of tuning will fix it ,I have felt a 8.5:1 first hand and it was crap..... just my un educated opinion
