Am I forgetting anything.

My car is going in for a cam and some other things. I am trying to set it up so when I add an ECS supercharger I wont have to add much more than what the kit comes with. Anyway here is what I have and whats going on the car in a bit
Halltech CAI,
Apex race scoop
LPE GT9 cam
PRC 6.75 springs
Speed Inch Chromemoly 7.400 push rods
Comp Cams Rocker Arm Trunion Upgrade
SLP double roller timing chain
SLP 160* Thermostat
SLP 25% UD Pulley
Melling High Volume Oil Pump
MSD wires
NGK TR6 plugs
2" Kooks Headers with out cats
NPP exhaust

Various ARP bolts

So am I forgetting anything before it goes to the builder or is this a good start? It is my first time building a car and want to do it right

Auto or manual ? Looks like a great start, most would be done after all that. Lol. Watch your wheel hop, more critical on manuals. Enjoy

Manual.

This winter I am going to build the suspension and probably do Axles and DSS aluminum driveshaft and possibly do a Katech LS9R clutch kit

Rear trailing arms and subframe connectors should kill well hop. You can do more but I think it's overkill. Wheel hop can and will break parts, trust me.

That will be necessary once you go FI

Yeah I do not plan on doing anything major with suspension just what you mentioned along with stock strut tower brace, lowering springs, and either 1le or zl1 sway bars.

Go with a c5r timing chain instead of the double roller

Yeah the double roller requires clearancing the back of the timing cover. And the double is just extra weight compared to the c5r. Since you're sending it somewhere they have the fluids and incidentals covered. I would assume they have any gaskets you'd need on hand due to volume.

Oh and I wouldn't do an underdrive pulley if you plan on going FI. Go with a stock diameter to control vibes.

I was planning on doing the C5r chain and stuff but It was cheaper to do the SLP double roller with 3 bolt design. I know they are really unnecessary but the deal was good. They will do all the clearancing during the install. I would not think the weight difference would be much.
Shop specializes in LS builds so they have all gaskets, fluids, and incidentals covered and included in the build cost.

It will be coming off when the SC goes on next year and replaced with stock size one. But I want to squeeze some more hp out in case something happens money wise and I have to put off the supercharger.

Thanks for the replies guys
