Sounds good to me! Wish I had the green for all of those parts, two things I would suggest are cobb tuning cams, and a lightend flywheel, that would give you a good 25-30 more hp at the wheels! good luck with your mods!

Lets see... You will end up having to get rid of the intake if you go turbo. You'll need a clutch if you go turbo. Cobb doesn't make headers I don't think and Borla's header's are not designed for a turbo, they may crack. The rest is good though.

I would look at SPD for a P1 suspension. By far the best value for a road going suspension.

The headers Cobb sells are the Borla gen 2 headers, as stated on his site. For suspention, i like adjustability. The KBY AGX strut seems to be a popular choice. I also like the 18-22 mm Whiteline rear sway bar with the upgraded end links. I have none of these products, but they seem to be well thought out and popular products.

I've heard some great stuff about the Leda coilover setup for the suspension. But it's pricey
