3. Engine brace and oil pan: Engine brace...ok. The engine braces left on the market are decent....the "good" ones are long gone (Kaarza and HolyMoto) unfortunately. Can't hurt, but not ideal. The oil pan? Not needed (and if I recall it reduces ground clearance a bit).
4. ARP kit: At your boost levels (i.e. stock Trask kit) you won't be lifting heads or stressing stock rod bolts.
5. Clutch: Barnett carbon kit and IF you can score a billet basket even better.
6. Fuel pump/injectors/rail: There are many plug and play injectors available for our bikes...no need for the "upgraded" rail.
7. 58mm throttle body: Don't. Tons of reasons all over this forum.
8. Trask turbo kit: Now this is MY opinion...but that "kit" is really low end. The lack of true fabrication and fitment speaks for itself. IF I was going the turbo route on these bikes (and I think that should only be if you are drag racing, otherwise the superchargers make more sense on the street) I'd look into a custom build. It will likely cost the same in the end and be built to a much higher level of quality and sensibility (sideways intercooler anyone...I digress).
9. Dyno: Ask around (the forums and in the real world) what level of spark knock the turbo guys are seeing. You'll find out real quickly that few shops that tune bikes know what that means and worse have no way to detect it because most of the turbo guys chose the "better" aftermarket ecms (you can hear my sarcasm right?). Search the forums on this...I have preached enough on this for a few days of reading.
That was my impression also, looking at the air filter and plenum. Plenum looks really back yardish fabrication in my view.
