Default HELP: Opinion needed on next mod

This friday, I put on a BPM mkiv exhaust, mrt CAI and a m2 upipe.
Of course I'm looking for what I should invest in next....

I am mainly concerned with the engine here..so make suggestions acordingly..

Link ECU
vs.
Larger Turbo (pros cons of just turbo itself and ecu later)

I am going to try and spend ~1500 before jan3 (gotta go back to school)

Are those all your mods? Do you have a boost controller or gauges yet? The Link is nice, but your not likely to see big gains without bigger mods (injectors and bigger turbo). The bigger turbo will require boost control and may require better fuel control (depending on the turbo). What about a piggyback (ala unichip) or AFC/Boost controller/Timing combo?

Assuming you don't have gauges or a boost controller. If I was in the same boat I'd probably do a set of intercooler hoses, gauges, and a good boost controller.

Eventually I will need either a larger turbo or ecu. So I am asking which should I get first. The ecu should give me more potential currently, and would obviously be a necessity before the larger turbo. The turbo should also provide a little more power with my current mods also. Im not about to go unichip and i'm not going to invest in a a/f or boost controller. With my budget constraints, I can't afford these parts only to have them become obsolete with the link. (i will also just use the link for boost control)
I won't need the injectors or fuel pump till further down the road. I don't have my goals set that high yet. I will probably get a flywheel and clutch before I start to work on the fuel system.

..another thought.

Anyone have experience with the headers? Or has anyone changed the wheels in the turbo? Maybe I should free up as much horespower as I can without changing turbos first?
