Nice. I've made out a list of my own but it goes more like this:

stage 1 (still under warrenty):
Whalen
Alta oil catch can
M7 grill

stage 2 (out of warrenty):
HAI (look at NAM)
15% pulley
Miltek exhaust

stage 3:
Alta big intercooler
ECU

stage 4:
cam
throttle body
header

I'll probably be stopping at stage 2 or 3 but I can always dream. There will probably be an oil temp and boost gauge installed somewhere in there. The other things like brakes and clutch will be upgraded once the stock one's wear out.

I did not pay 720 for the exhaust. this is just a list of future mods that I plan on getting. It will be spread over a 2year period. all the prices you see are retail prices. What does the "Hsport package" come with?

Plans for the car: daily driver. Im shooting for 200bhp, and I want a mini that handels like it's on rails.

If all you're shooting for it 200 hp, then skip the header and cat. A 15% pulley, intake, exhaust, and ECU should land you in the 200-210 hp range. That's about $2000 and then you can work on the suspension and tires. Also, the oil catch can is probably a good mod if you want engine longgevity - especially with a red. pulley.
