I like the sound of the akra system. Not sure if I like the others and exhaust note is a big issue. Has to be performance, but not too loud that my wife won't go in the car.
The supercharger: I read a few threads that people who got the 550 SC were disappointed they didn't go with the 620 after a bit. I figure in for a penny, in for a pound.
Skimp on the brakes (stock brakes are decent) for a while, maybe just do the springs with Swifts.... and save for the brakes/suspension in a year.
