Some comments/recommendations:
1. Get rid of the hi-volume oil pump. It is unneccesary, and it will strip out distributor gears left and right. It puts a strain on the distributor, and the standard stock style pump will do just fine.
2. The Fidanza flywheels have been causing some folks fits due to balancing issues. The only reason I mention this is, if you have a vibe problem after the build that wasn't there before, look there first.
3. You will need the EFI harness from the TC as well
4. You will only need UP TO 42 lb injectors with a 88 TC EEC. Anything more than that will be pig rich and will cause the car to under-perform. I assume you have an LA or LB series computer? Check over on turboford with "caroth" for injectors. He sells them at good prices.
