Boosting svt

So I want to boost my svt. I was wondering what all I will need to do this. I know I need injectors, rods, pistons and a tune. What else will I need to do I would like to make 300 whp.

depending on how old your block is you can do what i did as well and get a new water pump and oil pump as well. get some arp main and head studs....might want to invest in a new cam gear as well...you can make 300 on stock camshafts but if you want the 400 range i suggest a stage 3 or 2 camshaft. some argue a BAP but others just recommend a svt fuel pump wich clearly you have will do just fine. but also if you want the 400WHP range a return fuel system is needed. might want to invest also in a bigger throttle body. and of course the turbo kit with a big enough turbo to withstand 400WHP....not sure on the head package thou...someone else would have to chime in there

I talked to Tom and he said VCTdelete isn't really worth it so I won't be doing that and the turbo I have is a ar .50 will that be big enough to make 300
