FR-S Upgrade advice

Hey everyone, I'm purchasing some upgrades for my FR-S, and I was wondering if there was anything vital that I am missing.

I have a 2014 FR-S, and I am buying a GReddy turbo kit, a brake upgrade kit through rally direct, an oil cooler, and I will be spacing the tires a bit so I can add wider tires.

Is there anything vital that I should be adding into this car?

Honestly, I was going to keep the trd exhaust I have. I failed to mention that I have that currently in my FR-S. I do like the way it sounds.

I was just wondering if there was anything else other than cosmetics that I should be putting in this build. This is my first time building my own car, I have experience with these kind of builds but never did one on my own car.

I am getting a quick release as well to try and deter someone from stealing it!!

a CAI wont be a necessity with a Turbo. A T kit should have a decent intake system with it.

It's ALL good! No need to apologize.
Plus, the key word in my post was "SHOULD." I've seen some kits without intake systems.....stupid IMO....
