starting a major project

Okay, someone help me out here. I don't have all the money now, but I'm going to start buying stuff for a HMT. I got this list off of Focal Jet, and I wanted to know which brands you guys think would be the best.
Manifold:
JGS precision turbo(any flange)
toms starter kit(t-3)
graham goode racing(t-25)
Downpipe:
Tom's starter kit
What turbo to use?
Piping:
Tom's starter kit
JGS precision turbo
summit(mandrel bends)
Burns stainless
kinsler
Intercooler:
Precision
PWR
JGS precision turbo
Toms FMIC kit(comes with piping and intercooler)
Silicone Hoses:
JGS precision turbo
Turbohoses.com
Roadraceengineering.com
Clamps:
JGS precision turbo(t-bolt stainless)
Aeroquip dealers
Oil Feed and Drain Lines:
aeroquip(build to spec)
JGS precision turbo(kits)
pegasus racing(build to spec)

MAF:

Toms MIC kit(pro-m 70mm)

Injectors:

I know this is a lot, but I'm almost completely in the dark here. I'd try to make these decisions myself, but I have no past experiance with anything turbo related, so I don't know what companies are good. Any help would be appreciated.

Yup, it's a home made turbo, and that's about the extent of my knowledge concerning them.

ok......for starters, do like 6 months of research before you dive into choosing parts, i did, and it was the best move IMO. figure out exactly what your goals are and how much money you want to spend, then cut that amount in half and thats what you pretend you can spend becuase it always ends up doubling. you can make a decent HMT using used parts and a cheap rebuilt turbo, and be done under $2k.....i spent extra to get moslty all new parts and im at about $3,700. so theres some cash figures for ya. o yea....plan on a new clutch, i havent added that cost into either figure yet.

but to answer your question:
ATPturbo.com for all your mandrel bends, flanges, silicone couplers, and hose clamps(get t-bolt clamps)
either jgs manifold, or make your own
ebay for intercooler and possibly turbo (t3-super 60 is common, or if you wanna spend more the gt28r) ebay is also good for wastegate, BOV, injectors, etc.

Thanks a lot. Yeah, i have been doing tons of research, and I have the basic idea so far, but I still need to look into it a lot more.
