wow, with that amount of adjustments, I'd prob guess a higher capacity fuel pump and a larger fuel rail may help? Also, you'd prob want to replace the head bolts w/ head studs and torque them down 72~76 ft·lbf.

One thing to also keep in mind about the 7m is there are two separate compression ratios... the 7mgte has compression ratio 8.4:1, whereas the 7mge has compression ratio of 9.1:1. This leads me to believe the NA is not made to be boosted, or should not be boosted very much if at all. Only the 7mgte can support a turbo; and at that point, you still have to concern yourself with the upgrades previously mentioned to increase the reliability of the engine...

Finally, for those guys boosting excessively during these times of nearly $5/gal of gas... since you're throwing it away... can I get some cash?
