Default Converting my RC8e back to Nitro

Hey guys so I have a factory built RC8 that was converted to electric. I never had it as a nitro, but now it's spring time and I am thinking about swapping it back to a nitro. That said, all I could use is the steering servo but I need everything else. Heres a list of what I know I need, please recommend what kind of motor works well and add anything else!

I need:

throttle servo (what kind and where to get it from?)
fuel tank

anything else?

Exhaust System
Engine Mounts
Clutch Bell
Clutch Shoes
Clutch Springs
Fuel Tubing
Fuel Filter (optional)
Starter Box with battery(s) and charger
Engine of choice/budget- check with the local racers and see what they are running
Throttle Servo of choice - stick with something with a minimum of 150 oz torque - buy from your favorite hobby store or on-line store

I am certain I have missed something.

Knew I forgot something - Air filter assembly.
