What would I do differently? I have the next steps in rough order as: Modified fuel head for the safety of the engine, seal/mask the IC to the tail so that it is as effective as possible, then move to the a newer turbo like a k27hf or hfs.

My biases for a street car are: 1. Reliable conservative technology 2. broad usable power band 3. incremental changes so that I can continue to drive the car (radical makeovers on these cars seem to take them off the road for years with "one more thing" ;-)
I'm glad you posted. This is the exact system I've been slowly installing. I have a set of GHL headers and a K27 7200 sitting on the shelf waiting for installation. I also have the B&B intercooler, GHL muffler, and a 1.0BAR spring already installed. The SC cams will be in the future somtime. But I was wondering if you have or notice any boost creep? This has been my only concern. To the point I've considered not installing all this stuff. Maybe I'm just paranoid.
