Need Help

I bought a turbo 98 prelude recently. It has a t3t4 turbo with a front mount intercooler. No engine management nor any fuel upgrades, hence it gets fuel cuts at around 5k rpm. The car only has 75k miles, and didnt want to put it through a rough life, untill i fully get all the supporting mods, (upgraded fuel pump, fuel injectors and an engine management of some kind for tuning). So if I were to put it back to stock what should I look out for? I will be trying to do this myself for the first time. Any help would be appreiciated. Thanks in advance,
Wasif

MODS:
turbo manifold
fmic
t3t4 turbo w/external dump
rfl bov, with intercooler piping.
manual boost controller
and i think a fpr (fuel pressure regulator.)

turbo with no fuel upgrades/engine management? wow. well i would make sure your spark plugs are good, make sure you have good compression. chances are with out engine management, those are the first things that are gonna go.

if your going back to stock, then take everything turbo-related off, which includes:
turbo
manifold
downpipe
wastegate
IC
piping
boost controller

then your going to need a header and an intake. if the turbo had an intake tube + filter on it, you can use that temporarily until you decide you wanna boost again. but your gonna hafta buy a new header.
if you do wanna go turbo again later down the road, you basically already listed everything else you would need: injectors, fuel pump, and engine manangement.

Yeah I actually started pulling it off yesterday. The only problem I came across was that some of the bolts to take off the turbo from the downpipe are impossible to get to, from any kind of tool. So i decided to cut through the downpipe, and pull the whole thing off (manifold, wastegate,external dump, and turbo) all in one piece. Is it possible I can just get the downpipe that will be cut welded on again for later use? Let me know, thanks in advance,
Wasif
