Replacement of all gaskets and hoses
Installation of bushings
Replace steering boots
Replace wheel bearings
Redo exhaust (bought a custom exhaust that supposedly was on a XR, but it doesn't fit very well at all)
Install roller cam and new valve springs (and whatever else goes alog with that)
Install LA3 and Big VAM
Possibly replace brake components
Remove broken bolts from turbo
Possibly get turbo rebuilt (it's got shaft play)
remove C3 and install T5
Install manual boost controller
Install FMIC
Install 255lph fuel pump

Going to need to redo the suspension, but that'll have to wait till probably next year ($$$).
