I didn't read all the posts before mine, but couple things i gotta say from experience is that what your looking for can't be done cheap..... so you can just put that outta your mind. When hot roding a car, the performance parts are unbelievably expensive, and since car building/hot roding is not an exact science yet.... things tend to get broken or break.

Clutch wise i would suggest going with spec clutch, but for anything within that power band, and for that many miles your not going to find a new clutch/flywheel/slave cylinder combo for anything under 800.

I would give you my oil pump, but its currently still on my engine sitting in an junk yard.

For a wastegate, i would go with the turbonetics evo. Heard its capable of 400 with right spring on pump gas.

For the grip issue, you can always load your suspension to make it heavier in the front, i think cfm makes a couple traction bars thatll help with that.

Other than that cant say anything for fuel or wheels.

^ I've had the shittest luck with spec clutches. They have gone out in a couple 1000 miles.
To bad ACT doesn't make clutches for our cars. Those hold up very well.

yeah that would be my first choice, but like you said they dont make em for our cars.
i think spec is a lot better than clutch masters though, to pricey for a crappy clutch kit

I've had a great luck with my clutch master. Has 60k miles. But also my motor was n/a. Now I'll switch to a twin disc.

probably a good idea,
Ive never used one of those, but my buddy said you cant really feather/ drive on the clutch, especially when putting it on the trailer.
But this was in a super v8 built for oval racing, so idk if there would be a difference.
It was either push it upon the trailer, or stall it every couple of seconds trying to get it on the trailer.

It's one of those you have to get used to clutches but twin disc crab instantly.

copper cores. its the best plug still to this day for the boost application. they are super cheap too. i order mine from cfm. They just have to be replaced more often. but hell for $2-$3 per plug you can change them 3-4 times as the cost for something like iridiums.
