Default 2165cc build up

I've just got my hands on a 2165cc longblock for my bus and am looking for advice on the ancillaries I need.

At the moment all I have is a Bosch alternator kit and a set of dellorto 40's are on order.

I also have a 009 dizzy bug am thinking of upgrading this to something else.

I know I'll need a remote cooler, fuel pump, pulley, exhaust and a million and one other thing but an looking for recommendations.
