N/A motor question

Here's the deal guys I want to build a N/A motor that will push close too or beyond 215 hp. I read in a post of what a guy was running in his car. Here is his list:

Interprep "race" cam/shims/springs
Ported heads
Ported Manifold
Bored and Coned TB
ZE Pistons
Shotpeened rods
Underdrive pulley
Hotshot CAI
Hotshot headers
GReddy piping (no GReddy muffler)
Test pipe
Apexi S-AFC

He is running a MTX w/ Fidanza flywheel and ACT HDSS clutch.

I'm going to Korea for a year and was going to try and locate a KLZE engine. I'm running an ATX, so if I locate a KLZE in Korea and have what he has done to my KLZE and have L10 done to my ATX. What else would I have to do get my KLZE up to the HP range I'm looking for? Would the be a fuel issue running this setup? Would here be a need to move to larger injectors? I also plan on running nitrous with this setup is there any other thing that I will need to do?

Thanks in advance

If you plan on running nitrous as well, I'd get a Walbro fuel pump, maybe some larger injectors, a fuel pressure regulator, and also a high performance clutch..... like an act.

Oh wait, you have an auto, so I would recommend the Level 10 shift kit.. hopefully your tranny will be able to handle all that power.. don't forget a tranny cooler, and a regular oil cooler wouldnt hurt either..

Forgot to add, if you are going to make this a N/A vehicle, then adding Nitrous would turn it into a F/I vehicle..

If you are going to really go with N/A then you want to raise your compression....... if you are going to go with Nitrous or turbo or super then keep the compression where it's at, or lower it a little bit so you can handle more boost or nitrous..
