Question What of the these DO I need?

I am planning on FI very soon. I will be running 9lbs boost and my car has 92,000 miles on it. Which of the below is a must before I purchase and install my FI setup?

Oil Pressure & Boost Gages
Better Clutch
Ford Racing Water Pump
Kent Cam Belt
ARP Head Studs

If I am missing something sorry.. Only five things that have come to mind.


EDIT: Oh and MotorCraft Step 2 colder plugs. Thats a givin.

The only thing on that list that I see as being absoultly necessary is the clutch.

Great! Thats what I assumed as well. Is it really hard to replace the clutch yourself? Which clutch other than centerforce would be an option? Should the throw out bearing be replaced as well?

yes you should always replace your throw out bearing cause if it goes bad its gonna be a bitch when you have to pay all over again.

they dont cost that much anyways.
