So at the start of the year I began my build

Started with a stock standard 95 gti

Decided to start building it slowly trying to do all work myself,
first time i made the intercooler piping i ran it to close to the engine mount and kept rubbing, so i decided to run it a different route and havent had issues with rubbing since. at the moment I'm looking at removing the engine for a decent turbo build this is what Im currently running:

-T28 bb turbo
- sr20 throttle body
- larger custom intake manifold
- xr6 turbo intercooler
- larger fuel rail
- fpr
- chipped standard ecu
- kompact series dual port bov
- heavy duty clutch
- gti box with lsd

Now been buying some parts for when I remove and rebuild the engine, looking at running around 9.5:1 compression.

- vitara pistons
- forged conrods
- bd10 cams
-adjustable cam gears
-microtech lt10c ecu
-arp head studs

That's what I have planned and I already have most parts ready. This is a relatively cheep turbo build aiming to run around 18-20 psi.
My questions is with the head. I'm looking at going .5 oversize but not sure what to do about the springs.
Any helpful advice would be appreciated( I may have missed some things as I wrote this quickly) will upload pictures of build progress when on computer next

Looks good mate. That's almost the same avenue I'm exploring for mine.
