Well I'm in a similar situation as you, what I'm doing first is an SVT suspension kit and FSWERKS chassis braces with a CFM 4 point brace.

Those upper strut braces dont really do a whole lot , well the front one at least . The four point lower brace is a great investment though , i wouldn't waste my money on the front upper brace if i was you. Just my 2 cents though

I installed the Fswerks Cool Flow CAI and the 2.5 inch race exhaust with the tower strut bar and had it tuned using the SCT livewire which I found had a great improvement over stock but if you are looking for colder air with out the hydro-lock look at CFMs version they added the water bypass valve in there CAI. Personally fswerks was the best way to go the only problem I found with my 05 is the cornering in the rain could use some improvement I think it is due to the lack of a rear sway bar and the body rolls to much in the rear not allowing the suspension to do its thing. IF you plan to turbo talk to Fswerks and go with there pre-moded intake manifold for the 2.0L when I asked they said that they have them ready to ship for just over $900
