seems like a decient range in what those parts would cost and what they will do. IMO, a head port would be the best, but also most time consuming. Also, it really doesn't matter all that much unless you do springs/retianers and cams also. With all of those done, your car would turn into a diffrent beast all togeather.

2.25 is very small for a downpipe. I have never seen a custom downpipe smaller than a 2.5".

Bingo.
Also, unless you are spending really big money on that hood, an aluminum one would be better.

yeah, the majority of 'CF' hoods are actually the carbon fiber wrap around the fiber material anyways. I went with the aluminium hood since I had the option for functional 22b vents.

Engine management!
If you already have a nice ems, then 3" downpipe. after the downpipe, I'd say full 3" exhaust. The 2.25" downpipe that you have must be a HUGE restriction in exhaust flow.

sorry i was just browsing, but wouldn't you want to get the exhaust done first then get the engine management? that way you wouldn't waste dyno time on a less than stellar exaust set-up.

it's late, time for bed

Yes, start with the 3" pipe from turbine housing back and then proceed with the engine's electronics.
