Basically the same things I was thinking.

Im going with either the Perrin 25 and 25 kit and then I will mess with settings on the actual feel or Im also looking at the whiteline 24mm and 24mm setup with all upgraded end links. It is all going to be experimenting with the different settings to get the feel and driveability Im looking for. The more I read around as well I am liking the COBB 25 and 22 kit. Ill just have to look at pricing and start testing i guess. Like Josh said. Thats your best option. Ill also bring each of those kits in house if you are interested in testing them before you pick.

If you really want to feel a difference on the street, a bigger bar (like 24-25mm) will definitely give you a stiffer feel, but might not necessarily be the "best" as far as handling ability. As for brands, I think any of the ones you mentioned would be fine, as well as Cobb and Perrin. Folks 'round here seem to be big on Whiteline, which I was unfamiliar with before, coming from Hondas. I have the Whiteline 22mm adjustable front bar and on the soft setting I can barely tell a difference from the stock bar. The hard setting feels pretty good, but so far it's been too stiff for autocross so I can't see myself using it much. The Eibach kit seems pretty popular too since its a "kit." I haven't really looked at it but I'm guessing it's hollow and might not be quite as stiff as some of the other similar size bars. It might be a good starting point for messing with sway bars, since you're more concerned with "feel" than actual handling characteristics like reducing understeer. Think you'll try putting them on yourself or will you take it somewhere? Good luck!
