Default new CSX build

I am getting a CSX 60xx car and the dealer that am getting it from is not a very good resource for parts needed. The car is pretty "as is" This is a Hi tech South African car, very nice car but not any options installed. I am getting the car for a decent price so I am OK with adding options my self.

I will need advice on some issues, I may get some parts from ERA and Kirkham.

1) I will need a hydraulic clutch slave cylinder, I like the one that Kirkham sells, a bit pricey at $495 but it looks nice, I am using a Quick time bell housing.

2) I will probably get the Tremmic TKO tranny mount from Kirkham as well $495 trans mount ouch...

3) need motor mounts, for an FE again the KMS ones look great but look as if they dont have much flex like a traditional rubber mount, advise?

4) Heater (wife request) I currently have an ERA car and like the heater, may get one from ERA advise?

4) vent kit?

5) Tannoue cover, again the ERA body is almost identical to the CSX and KMS car, I will source this from ERA, any one done this at home? I am very nervous on drilling on a black paint job, is there a template? Peter P at ERA has no Idea.

6) e-brake? I have no idea where to start here. advice?

7) I am using EFI (megasquirt) on a custom made intake manifold from Moorison (8 stack cross ram) I am being told the best set up is to put the fuel pump in the tank. Anyone doing this here? if so advise on what to use? I guess I will need to modify my fuel tank for this. I really want to 42 gallon stainless fuel tank KMS makes but at a $5k price tag I will use the stock one from the CSX car. advise on this?

8) The primary pipes that come with the car look like crap, they are welded in pieces instead of one pipe done with a bender, like the ERA.The side pipes look OK but this is an issue. I am pretty sure the ERA primary pipes will work as the foot wells on the ERA are bigger that the CSX car. I will just need to look at the steering shaft to make sure it will work. The openings on the side look identical. If I am going with the ERA primary pipes I probably just go with the ERA side pipes as well... The one thing I am NOT HAPPY with with the new CSX car is the primary pipes are crap...

9) I would like to add a glove box I need a source for this.

10) side pockets, advise?

This looks to be a duplicate of :

new CSX build

How about we keep it all in the other place since discussion has already started there?
