Hi, new to the whole turbo coupe scene. Currently been given the opportunity to build one and have some questions. Any input and any of the following questions is greatly appreciated. I should mention I want this to be a street reliable track ready car just nothing too wild.

•Gutting upper and lower intake worth it?
•Switch to a t3 or keep ihi
•Can I mount the stock Intercooler as front mount temporarily?
•mild cams? Hydraulic?
•stock throttle body? what could I run?
•changing pulley size going to make a difference?
•how much power can I make with how little money?
•how much timing should I run?
•bigger fuel pump?

Probably not if you want to street it

•Switch to a t3 or keep ihi
Might help your decision:

•Can I mount the stock Intercooler as front mount temporarily?
Someone may have an argument against it, but I don't

•mild cams? Hydraulic?
You'll want to maintain a wider LSA, maybe 114? You'll need lift.

•stock throttle body? what could I run?
What do you have for a block?

•changing pulley size going to make a difference?
Not really on a turbo.

•how much power can I make with how little money?
Power=Money... and they don't accept first borns. That's a very relative question.

•how much timing should I run?
Again, which block.

•bigger fuel pump?
How much horse power?

Designing out an engine is not as easy as, I want more horses, so here's a cam. It's more like, I have these heads, this block, and these pistons, I need to match this cam to it, forced induction (particularly turbo) means I need the exhaust like this. Fuel injectors are in liters per hour here's a guide: https://www.enginelogics.com/confirm-your-dyno-results/

Even though EFI makes for a tamer street machine when it's a track machine, there are limits. So I guess the first question will be, are you building from scratch or are you building up what you have?
