DSP build - opinions and suggestions welcome

So after having a talk with my brother Zab, we have finally decided what we want to do in the near future. I''ve been racing against 2 SVT foci in ST (Zab's and Tukani's (Ray)) in my Eclipse.. and so far its been fun but we feel like its in DSP where its at!
We all know that at national level, BMWs own DSP..but before I get down to the future mod list I'd like to ask if there's anyone who has actually fully built a true DSP Focus to the point where you could actually said "I've done everything I could..but Im still loosig!" kind of thing.. I believe if we max out the Street Prepared rule book we might actually have a chance at 2013-2014 Nationals. (hoping the world doesnt end in 2012.. LoL)

Suspension:Zab's SVT has all stock suspension, except for Moog endlinks up front and Energy Suspension on the rear..so:
Koni Yellows with H&R Race springs
H&R rear sway bar
Stock front sway bar with new bushings
CFM tubular control arms
Rear Stress bar
Front strut tower brace
Polyurethane bushings where needed

Under the hood:
Zab's SVT is already equiped with:
AEM cold air intake
Steeda motor mounts
CFM dogbone mount with Race bushings
Taylor wires
Copper plugs
130amp alternator from CFM
The entire A/C system is there, but its running on a shorter belt skipping the compressor.
It used to have Tom's tune, but somehow messed it up and its back to stock. But we are already working on getting it re-tuned.

Plan on getting:
67mm throttle body
3" header back exhaust with ORP
lightweight battery
Maybe - TopSpeed's intake manifold
We are planning on keeping the engine internals as they are....for now..

Brakes:
PowerSlot cryo treated rotors
Hawk pads
Stainless steel brake lines
DOT4 brake fluid
New seals for calipers

Transmision:Clutchmasters Lightweight flywheel + clutch combo
MTL RedLine transmision fluid
LSD *need advice!

Weight Reduction:
Carbon fiber hood
carbon fiber hatch (maybe)
Racing seats (not sure which brand/style yet)
Back seat delete

Wheels and Tires:
275/35-15 Hoosies on either 9" or 10" wide wheels for divisionals and nationals --not sure which wheels to get *need advice!
225/40-16 for regionals

Im sure I missed a few things.. but we would like to hear from yall. Suggestions and opinions are very much welcome
