If you buy a new stock fuel pressure regulator it should come with any new gaskets, rings, seals, etc. you need.

asking what's best isn't going to get you any answers. There's no real "best" parts out there. It's all about your set-up and your plans.

However... considering the limited options of intake manifolds for neons, you either have stock plastic, magnum, or indy.

I'd say you should go with the magnum.

you'll also need to either tap your pan for an oil return line or buy one and tap it. You'll need all the turbo piping(hot pipe, cold pipe down pipe, etc.) If you're not going with a rising rate regulator then you'll have to get something to control the injector pulses(emanage and others). Also if y...

The straighter the better. Putting it out the side would take a lot of bends out of the exhaust, but it looks like complete crap IMO. A good 3" turbo-back would be the best bet, but it's up to your pockets whether you can or not.

Manuals are good for mild street cars though. The smaller amount of drivetrain loss and generally shorter gearing does the trick....

yes. You will need a new oil pump. My stock one went out on me but I got lucky and it didn't do any harm. I know grindpunk's went out on him and he's having to rebuild his motor now because of it.

No it's a 120whp gain. So instead of the stock 110whp or so, you'd have around 230whp. It's probably around 150crank hp gain.
