So as some of you know the motor in my LGT is on its way out. I had to move some finances around to make it happen, but I was able to put up enough money to get a Forged build done, and wanted to keep it documented and get some opinions. Im not building this thing for big numbers, not even putting a bigger turbo on it at first. So keep that in mind, its just a "stronger than stock" build. The VF40 that's on the car has only 35k on it at this point so Im gunna stay with it, unless I find and issue with it upon removal. Biggest turbo Id probably ever run is an 18G-ish due to the 5EAT, but that's later if ever. And of course I do have a budget so have to keep that in mind.
First off I would like to thank any vendor that has assisted me in the process, Ive not ordered anything yet, so you all will receive a portion of business in the next few weeks.
I going to be pulling the long-block myself, removing the heads and necessary parts and shipping them to Pheonix Performance for them to rebuild the heads with slight valve job and attach them to a freshly built shortblock. Then ship it to me as a longblock. Im having the block built as follows

Short Block-
JE Pistons (there preference)
08+ STI Crank and Rods
ARP Headstuds
10mm Oil Pump
Moroso Oil Pickup
OE HeadGasket
Gates Timing Kit
Remove Banjo Filters
Filtered Turbo Oil Feed

Standard Refresh (with any needed replacement parts)
3 Angle Valve Job
Grimmspeed 3mm TGV spacer

STi Fuel Pump Control Module and Pump

Perrin Column Pod
Boost gauge....
Debating on Oil Pressure...

I have TGV deletes that could be finished
Perrin Turbo Inlet
850cc Injectors
Port Throttle Body
PnP Headers

Hayden External Cooler (already installed)
Derale Fluid T-stat for Trans (waiting for install)

So at this point please post any useful suggestions or additions to me list.

Also since its the 5EAT, is it a pain to get A/T separated from the engine? All the subies Ive ownd were MT.
Thanks guys, enjoy the coming story and pics..
