    At a minimum you're also going to need gauges (boost/vac and A/F) and a fuel pump.

    Have you calculated that 42-lb injectors are big enough for 10psi? I'm running 8psi and have 62-lb injectors.

    I'm not turbo'd, but running a Procharger. My tuner (FROST on here) HIGHLY recommended a methanol injection kit with FI so I went with the AlkyControl system. They also recommended hardened push rods and new valve springs.

    Here is my thread which details everything I bought if you want to reference it: My Procharger Build - Kinda

    Well I know for a stock LS1, 8psi is about the maximum everyone I've ever talked to recommends.

    If you run more than that, I would think about forged pistons and connecting rods. A lot of people crack piston #8 who run in the 12psi range without any engine upgrades.
