Looking to modify

Well it is that time, and that time means more power. Just looking to pick some brains here.

I don't want to go to crazy (at least not yet) as I still have the stock motor and PMRs. I was figuring on getting these parts:
38r w/ WW
Stage 1s or even stage 2s (don't know from who)
Regulated Return (Probably ITP)
Custom tune (Probably from PHP)
JW or BTS valve body

Like I said I don't want to go to big until I get a built motor in there, then the real fun can begin, but I wanted some opinions on a mild build like this. I know I would probably be looking at around 375-400 horsepower with just this from the reading I have done.

Just my opinion, but i wouldn't worry about the 38r if your going built later on. Id go with a modded h2e or something that uses a T4 style mount.. opens up a huge list of options for larger turbos later if wanted, plus its fully rebuildable.

For now though, a set of stage 1s, stock turbo, with a ww2 would be a fun rig.. Lots of people are running stock turbos with the ww2 and putting down some decent numbers.
