The plan is to go to an 18G-XT with a 7cm housing, so all those mods are in the cards already. The transmission will be the big ticket item; I actually have most of the supporting mods for the turbo already, so I'll probably redo the uppipe/exhaust and then work through cosmetic and non-tuning required mods and keep an eye on the budget, then do every single mod beyond that at once (FMIC, fuel system, Turbo, BOV), and retune at that point since those items are all kind of a waste to do by themselves as it is.
Still looking at the 6 speed swap on my own, but have a mechanic who may be able to source one cheap enough to make up for his labor. Only issue is neither of us have done one before, but at least his work comes with a warranty.
