Its kinda bittersweet, i never thought i could get this much done. I almost gave it up. But good timing, advice and some very skilled people helped me finish.
Thanks to the FF members and their awesome used parts deals!
Turbo Turtle..you are the man!
Tom (Focus-Power)..first person who welcomed me here and offered plenty of helpful advice.
Sporadic..the inspiration for this whole thing..i saw your build and i knew i could pull this off! Thank you.

Hello SaleenT121,

I was reading about your engine build and I think I'll go the same way of yours.

My d20 blew up last night, I was running 11psi on a gt2871. Now I'm looking for pistons and rods.
Do you remember what PN of Wiseco you got? Your engine bore is the stock 87.5?

Just right after I started a thread looking for forged pistons and rods, I think the engine heard about it.

**Update 2015**

Well i got some new parts and decide to re-tune the car. In the form of a list here goes..
-New custom log style turbo manifold
-New GT2871R turbo (replaces old gt28rs)
-New External WG (formally internal gated)
-Plugs now gapped at 28 from 35
-Boost up to 26psi up from 24psi
- KB boost-a-pump is still not maxed out at this level on an otherwise stock fuel system.
-10" air filter

Power level (old) GT28RS
-low boost 14psi:280whp 287wtq
-hi-boost 24psi: 315whp 323wtq

Power level GT2871R
-low boost 16psi: 306whp 282wtq
-Hi boost 26psi: 355whp 370wtq

This is a .86 exhaust housing. I am glad i did this upgrade, its way more punch without being to large a turbo. great for the street and feels amazing!
Also i have a 3" turbo back exhaust connected with V bands. and external WG dump.
