Default building a dedicated track car

Hi guys.
Im turning my scoob into a dedicated fun track car.
I have bought a 5 speed gear box which was refurbished by Api 6 k miles ago. Just wondering what the situation with how often oil changes with a newly refurbished box should be and what oils people recommended for box and diff for track use. Which weight and brands please? Im running 330bhp and 300 torque in a bugeye. I know this is not an ideal amount of power to run through a 5 speed on a track but im thinking that the box is fresh so should hopefully handle it if treated with respect.

Im hearing differing opinions on which engine oil to use also so any info regarding all appropriate performance fluids to use on track would be awesome please.

Im also fitting the following parts to begin with then hopefully getting out and having some fun. Would anyone advise brands of these parts to use or suggest any extra bits to fit?

Thanks in advance to the Scooby gurus!

*Roll cage with harness bar
*Harnesses
*Magnetic sump plug
*Bigger radiator
*STI topmount and undertray.
*Braided brake lines
*decent pads. maybe blue stuff
*Strip interior.
*Slick tyres and spare wheels
Cold air intake from front bumper
Ducting aimed at brake calipers
Set of gauges
Boost controller possibly?
Exhaust noise reduction possibly? How can I test if this will pass track regs?
Adjustable rear arb– whiteline
Adjustable front arb – possibly?
Anti lift kit?
Fuel cut off
Battery cut off
*Geometry set up with camber bolts
Powerflex black bushes possibly?
Baffled sump plate RCM
Front upper strut brace
front lower H Strut brace
Rear strut brace
External pump 50
Tow eye
Hks oil filter
Performance fuel filter possibly?

Many thanks.
