I need help with my hybrid build!!

I have been researching for about 2 weeks now so I have read Plenty of forums. After alot of looking around I have decided to do the Hybrid build. I think. I dont have much money to work with and I want to get it done by winter and last me. What I think I need is ej257 short block, water pump, oil pump, and gaskets. I have been trying to figure out what gaskets to get and have found no real answer. I am hoping to come out with a price under $2600. I will be running all stock for now. Can I run it without a tune until I have the money to do so?
Thank You
Lance

Use the EJ257 turbo head gasket, stock ones. No do not run it on the stock tune as this build increase your compression ratio and the fueling and timing will be all wrong.

I was also going to do the injector mod. Any idea how much a tune costs?

Depends on the shop. I don't know of any tuners near Rumford, Maine, so you'll need to add a good wideband O2 sensor to the cost of an e-tune.

Personally just buy new injectors and forget modding them. Well as brfatal said depends on the shop and the method of tune, i.e. Cobb, OS, Hydra, ect. I'm sure I could dig up a map base map for a OS tune that would get you to a tuner.

Witchhunter no longer sells injector sets. They will modify yours but there is no guarantee that they will flow similar amounts.

They say to send in more than 4 and they will match up the best of the bunch... I am just showing him opinions. I still stand behind upgraded injectors though.
