    To drift? Same as any car- Decent diff, coilovers, drivers bucket seat.

    Engine wise, you got a good start. Turbo-back 3in system and a remapped ECU will make it a decent car.

    Beyond that it's bigger injectors, bigger turbo, and Nistune or similar.

    Can do 400+ on standard internals.

    Coilovers, proper LSD, nismo super coppermix clutch, tien rods and ends, subframe locking collars / hicas lock, exhaust. In that order. More power comes last.

    My r32 drift/circuit race set up (rb20det)

    front mount + piping (using proper T-clamps)
    52mm alloy radiator with silicone hoses
    walbro lift pump, 2lt surge tank, bosch 044 main pump
    444cc GTR injectors
    3" exhaust
    Adjustable suspension + adjustable arms + good tie rod ends
    Recaro seat
    tomei 2 way
    exedy clutch
    Rb25 highflow turbo
    Good tune
    solid mounted subframe

    ^you won't need all of that to start, but suspension and diff is by far the most important. You can just weld up your current diff too (I use a 2 way to keep my car legal in NZ). Follow this with the basic bolt on stuff ie. intercooler and exhaust. That will be plenty to get you going.
