I'm planning on going big turbo soon so I'm planning everything that i need to buy. Right now I'm running a Depo Racing catless Downpipe, AP v3, green filter, JST Performance Intercooler kit (Mishimoto), and Tial Q BOV. My goal is to get atleast 400whp. So the turbo I'll like to go with is the GTX2871R. Then run the AEM V2 Water/Meth kit. I'll probably need new charge pipes and then later down the line I'll need to upgrade the clutch. Please let me know if there's anything else that I'm missing that is important.

You will need a charge pipe that incorporates a mounting flange for your tial Q. Other route is to have a flange welded to the stock hot side pipe, I went this route but with a turbo xs blow off valve to save a few bucks. You'll want a guardian angel to pair with the water meth system to protect the engine in case the flow of water/meth stops during a pull. You will also want one step colder spark plugs for the big turbo. Once you start using the water/meth system you will be running significantly more boost than with the stock turbo and your clamps will blow off frequently around 25+ psi so you will want to upgrade those.

:whs:

Sounds like you have most of it figured out already.
I ran a similar setup with a GTX2867R and AEM V2 plus used a Guardian Angel as my safety in case I ran out of juice.
Good tune is also absolutely necessary when running a big turbo!

Yes. I'm sure he will. Gap them correctly and they are an amazing plug. I run them myself at Stage 3

I would also upgrade the intake and exhaust as well. It wouldn't hurt to get a occ on the intake manifold side. If you havent done rmm and psmm, i would do so to help with traction and engine movement.
