Have you picked out a Tuner ?

That should be on your list and follow his advice.

I'm questioning if you really need the valves and such, coated exhaust manifolds,

Your not looking for a 10 second car just a good DD.

You may want to find a used block in good shape and rebuild that instead of buying a new OEM and taking it apart and throwing away the insides.

I may have missed it, what tranny do you have ?
255,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
