I am currently building a B18C and I am turbocharging it, I was wonderong on advice on what bits I absolutely need to get the engine runing correctly. My quiries were do I need
Bigger injectors or could I run an extra injector with a hop switch
Camgears, adjustable
Metal head Gasket
I have an Apexi VAFC fuel computer, will that be sufficiant or will I need to run a bigger computer like motec or wolfe

ANY ADVICE OR IDEAS WOULD BE GREAT

THANKS B)

extra injectors suck... stick to upgrading the 4 you have. depending on how big you are going, 440s, 550s, 720s will hold 90% of the turbo setups out there.
toda cam gears
you really dont need the headgasket either...

IMO, a vafc is a pos and is not suitable to tune a boosted application. Plenty of people do it, but a lot of them blow up. I would not put 5 psi on a small ass turbo on my car without hondata or aem ems TUNED with a wide band o2 on a dyno. but thats me.
motec is kinda going crazy IMO- its bad ass... but its also a shit load of cash
