Assorted silicone hoses an Jubilee and Mikkalor clamps for pipework - you'll get very little off your donor car for that.
You'll need to go somewhere like ebay to get the right bends etc, especially around the intercooler.

Added to the list, guess costs and items will only be identified when i mock up the engine with intercooler and Rad in the garage - Pre install
