Aside from pretty much all that you have, time to move to forced induction man, otherwise it becomes a costly process with little gain.

stock turbo set ups can be done for as little as 2 grand if you do it ur self but the fact is as ur under the crapy laws that the eastern states, best bet is bite the billet and just save and then indoulge the money in a decent set up when u get of ur p's
and as for waht XTC16 said he is correct, it is a short root to go with the na rb30 and costly just easyer to go turbo and get beta gains for same price

bigger fuel pump, VN SS fuel injectors, 3inch straight thru xhaurst system. bang a set of semi-slicks on there, an you'll be moving quicker.

This aint a turbo man... Just a NA 3.0L... A 3 inch exhaust is far too big especially if its a straight through exhaust... the loss of low end torque and power would be too noticable.
