I wouldn't do the headers if you look around you should find some forums on them. Since you are getting the car tuned maybe get a short ram intake, intercooler hoses and BOV

You could get a whole new intercooler but that is much more than the hoses. If you get a new intercooler you might as well just spend another $1200 and get a turbo kit as well.

Dont get headers. I have them and consider them a waste of money. That $600 or so is much better spent elsewhere.

How far are you trying to go? Are you only concentrating on power? I'd start with an
upipe
turboback exhaust
UTEC

I don't think it's necessary to get the headers, hoses, or intake. BOV if you want the sound (i personally have one).

If you want to go farther, i'd say
walbro fuel pump
larger intercooler (top or front mount)
VF34 or VF22 depending what you want
and larger injectors

TBE, Up-pipe, UTEC (comes with an MBC), custom tune.

That will get you started.

Some will disagree, but the intercooler hose will flow alot better than the stock ones and suposingly gain 5-7 hp. It's your choice but I feel every little thing helps IMO.

Well if you plan to upgrade to a bigger turbo and IC in the future, don't spend the $135 on the IC hoses. I say UTEC, Turboback exhaust and uppipe, and get a tune. From there get an IC, Fuel pump, injectors and a turbo. Good luck

Not bad, but I'd order it from Gruppe-s. Cheaper, free shipping, and a better reputation.
