Kill the caps man! I'm not quite sure what you asking but the F-max kit comes with everything you need except the exhaust from the cat back. For a good running turbo I'd ditch the Greddy and go 3" all the way.

Remember not included but needed with the Fmax kit is: clutch and clutch disc, some engine mount reinforcing in the form of solid mount or ES inserts, if going over 10psi add something to help ignition such as MSD 6A, weld up and cryo treat tranny gears. All that is just a start. Electronic or manual boost controls, brake and suspension upgrades to handle the added power would be wise as well.

You don't really "need" to beef the tranny going over 10psi. I'm still on the stock trans with a pile of whoop ass on it for the entire season last year and nitrous before that! (BTW this is with me running 16+ psi all the time with a max of 22)

The way you shift and treat your trans has a lot to do with how it lives. If you shift normal but quick it will be fine. If you start banging gears and popping the clutch out after shifts, your screwed.

I'm probably going to treat my gears this winter but I might just wait to see what the new "fix" is. Besides it will be cool to see just how much the stocker can take.

No it does not have an internal wastegate. That is just a wastegate port, machined into the turbine housing, to be used if you want to add the optional integral wastegate pieces. I will be using a TiAl.

Hahaaa I got it from Craig closet full of Nissan freebies Damaschi. That guy has Nismo shirts, signed posters, hats, key chains etc etc.

I wish I could help you more but that's about the best I can do. Maybe hit up the local dealership to see what goodies Nissan gave them to hand out. Don't waste your time with the SE-R hat from Courtesy. It's on of those "sit high on your head" John Deer type caps and you can't change it or wear it in. I know I bought one.
