What Goes With Turbo?

See, I want to get a turbo, but I probably won't be able to for a year or so... but I was wondering that if I wanted to get a 65mm TB, Typhoon Short Ram Intake by K&N, Screamin Demon Coil /w Focus Live Wires, Cams, UDP, Racing Header, and other things of that nature....

Would any of these aftermarket goodies still be useable with the turbo when I get one? B/c I would just like to get some performance mods without having to take a lot of stuff off when I get the turbo...

I would really appreciate any feedback you may have for me. Thanks everyone!

Cheers!

-Brad

the udp, tb, live wires, and cams (depends on the grind) would be able to be kept. wait for exhaust too, go 3" when needed

Honestly, If you are seriously going turbo (everyone says they are, but never will). I wouldn't mod a single thing. The UDP would be totally pointless. When you're pushing that much power, an extra 3whp just is not worth laboring your alterantor or wearing any other parts out of line. I know i lost my computer, alt, battery, sensors because of my UDP wearing my engine components for a year. The exhaust has to be a 3" if you're going turbo, either wait or put it on later. The race header would be pointless also since the turbo kit you would buy, would give you a new turbo manifold to replace it. Intake? Chances are that same turbo kit comes with a special intake. Throttle body would be a good idea, too. The screaming demon's would be a good idea also. Cams I think is a pretty serious mod that just isn't necessary for daily driver cars. The cams that come in the stock focus just happen to be just fine.

The exhaust doesnt have to be 3" and if you happen to get a used aerocharger then a race header would be a good idea other than that no need for the header
