If it was me I wouldnt do the top end. A set of forged pistons and rods will make it reliable enough to throw as much boost as your gearbox can handle. You need to think cost vs result. Plus of course standard engine rebuild stuff. You are better off leaving the top end then trying to do it all and spending $5000 on an $8000 engine then selling the car afterwoods because you are sick of it. Plan ahead that way :).

Megasquirt, walbro 255, not sure what injectors you 2.0L guys use. Look up the 2nd gen forced induction primer/database.

The gearbox can handle not much power. But enough to make you happy you turbocharged. THere is no magic number, the more power you have, the more likely it will break.

unless your looking for huge power numbers (which I doubt you are on a t3 super 60) I wouldn't touch the head unless you have to (already needs to be rebuilt)

Save the money and get some nice forged rods and pistons instead.

For fuel I would say that you could probably get away with 440 injectors. If you want to push over 300whp I would step it up to 550's. I'm not all too familiar with the fs motor but they use side feed high impedance injectors correct? If that's the case I would look to the Subaru world for some cheap injectors. If they're top feed pick up some 1st gen 3sgte or 7mgte Toyota injectors (440's).

Really your best bet on building an fs is to head over to a mazdaspeed protege bored and learn their dark arts.
