    well let's see... get:
    -heat exchanger
    -fans for that heat exchanger and maybe a shroud
    -t-line or resevoir
    -hose clamps
    -water additive

    Edit: damn I forgot t-line/resevoir. as for which components you should choose, do some forum browsing and you'll see the subjects have been beaten to death many times.

    look you are going to keep getting responces similar to acids if oyu dont do a little more research

    you havent givin us a single idea other than a budget what your goals are

    most of us here get pretty tired of people that dont read stickys and dont give any of the required info .
    so help us help you by including your goals for performance and what your case is and any other limiting factors
