a few smaller details you want to look into:

a new MAP sensor (I think an SRT4 Caliber MAP may work)
a one way high pressure valve for your PCV line
a water/meth kit for added boost insurance http://www.alcoholinjectionsystems.com/
once you get over 7-8 psi and 5600 rpm, you'll likely be low on fuel pressure
(Boost Gauge/Fuel Pressure Gauge and Wideband from Auto Meter highly recommended with their triple A pillar pod)
Aeromotive Stealth 340 Fuel Pump will solve any supply issues (direct in tank swap with stock pump) for about $170

There's more I'm sure, but that's all that comes to mind atm
...good to see you making progress already.

Thanks man. I had totally forgotten about the MAP sensor. I wonder what MGH uses? maybe he will chime in. I know I'll be needing a fuel pump but I'm going to get the truck tuned on low boost first to get all the quirks worked out of it then up the boost a month or 2 after I feel comfortable with the truck performing and have saves some penny's for a new tranny. As for a boost gauge I'm pretty sure the Eboost 2 reads boost along with controlling water meth and a bunch of other features I've got a AFR gauge. all I'll need is a fuel pressure gauge. other issues I'm coming across is I'm currently running ARH long tubes.. I really don't want to give them up since I paid so much for them. However there no room to fit the exhaust to route it to the front mount position so I'm going to get creative for the time being to make sure I can get this thing tuned correctly before I break down and sell them or remove them off the truck. and if everything goes good with the turbo build I'll break down and buy shorty's and hack them up to point forward. I'll hopefully have the intercooler mounted up today and I'll just be waiting on some more funds if the wife will let me play some more this set of days off haha.

Intercooler is mounted and have had no problems with it so far. Got all the fittings and such for the oil lines for the turbo taken care of also. what kind of line should I use?

Mounted sneaky sneaky like

A srt4 two bar map will cover you for low boost.
If you change out the fuel pump after getting it tuned you'll have to take it back for a retune.

Yeah I know I'll need to retune. I ordered my 3" piping to finish the hot side and cold side

That looks awesome if you want it to be even more stealthy paint it matte black the intercooler that is.

Heres a little bit of a update. Had to redo the intercooler bracket and mounting to the truck. I tried to make everything bolt in but after about 2 hrs of me drilling and still not happy with it I broke out the welder and welded the bitch to the frame. and it's solid as a rock now. Got my PTE waste gate in looks amazing I can't wait to get the truck running to try it out. I also ordered some 3" pipe from Columbia bends 6 - 90's and 45's and 180 bends along with some straights. also got some 4" pipe locally Holy Cow that was expensive "i'll order on line next time" but got my exhaust ran out of the engine bay anyway.. but one to the pictures.
Heres the back of the intercooler 1x1 11gauge square tubing "don't judge me I broke out the old flux welder for this one to see if it still worked lol"

Came home and the wife had this on the table

Directions

and the goodies


Turbo in it's permanent spot

Almost forgot Got me a new shop dog! Half English and Half Bull mastiff its a female so I'm not sure what I'm going to name her yet..

I'm going to be ordering my BOV soon and injectors and that'll be it besides tuning. Also great news on that, there's a shop less than a hour from me that Has and Can tune my truck with the turbo "We will see" but they just finished up a 392 Hemi with a 80mm Big single and it's still holding together and running good.so hopefully they can tune it for me! I'm starting to get excited
