Thank you all for the feedback so far. Great ideas and I'm trying to learn as much as I can by reading other threads. As I've started to price things out, this gets expensive fast!

Based on some of the comments, I think I'll hold off on the exhaust for the time being. I'm still thinking:
JB4 Stage 2 (is ISO just a mod I do to that myself? Also, what about flex fuel wires?)
DPs (thoughts on AR vs BMS? BMS looks a lot less expensive)
ER Charge Pipe
BMS Intake. I know the intake isn't critical, but I love the turbo sound.
I may also do the kidney grills, as that's cheap and extremely easy.

Other comments have got me looking at suspension and brake upgrades, but I need to spend some more time researching all that before I come up with an actual list. I'll have to price that stuff out, though, and maybe hold off on the JB4 until I've done some upgrades in those areas.

Do you guys generally buy from other people on here? I've heard that Terry at BMS and Mike at N54tuning are good to buy from.

Oh, and finally, a hood wrap, right Nick??
