Default First ever build, squeezing everything out of the 2.0L...

Hey guys I'm wrapping up my first ever build and I'm looking for some more experienced builders to throw in some input. So you know what im working with here is what I have built so far:

Ej205
92.5mm wiseco pistons
sti rods
3 angle valve grind
acl main and rod bearings
td05 20g
3" catless downpipe
megan uel header and catless uppipe
3" full catless exhaust
spt cai
tgv deletes
cobb ap
ngk one step colder plugs

I've got the basics here but I've never built an engine and I have a lot to learn. I was hoping for some of you seasoned vets to point out some weak points/next steps to go for with this build. I realize the turbo may be my weak point, input on that would be appreciated. Also I've started looking into some other power gainers, more specifically meth, e85, etc. If this was YOUR engine, what would your next step be and why?

How much power are you looking for? You need to map out your goals for this build. Are you planning to do anything with the heads? Sounds like your just building a 2.0 shortblock? I would ditch the STI Rods with some 4340 H Rods.

I'm making over 300 whp on a stock block 2.0. On a good tune built you would make more. Save some time and money and get rods before you assemble.
