Default What to do? What to do?

Well after tax season has passed I will have about 3K in disposable income. Ive been wondering about what to do to my 02 Si. Ive got an AEM V2 intake so far and nothing else. Ive thought about getting some of the things on this list. I wanna see what everyone thinks I should get:

1. DC Sports header (race or shorty, not sure)
2. Borla Exhaust (because it looks closest to stock)
3. K20A2 head swap
4. K-Pro from Hondata
5. More agressive cams (Skunk2 looking good right now)
6. RSX Type S tranny (if i do the head swap)
7. Hi flow cat (if I go with shorty header)
8. Clutch (ACT or Exedy)
9. Any other suggestions

Alright guys lets hear it!

Wow, I'd go with K20A2 head and pistons and tranny swap. That'd be awesome.

i'd look into suspension, maybe brake upgrades.

Ive thought of boosting but if i went that way id stay with the A3 head. The A3 will accept boost more easily than the A2 because of the comp ratio. I want to go all motor on this biotch. If i were to boost id probably go supercharged. Don't wanna deal with the headaches that other EP3 owners have had with the turbo kits that have come out.

If you get a S.C., do you even have to build the motor? I don't imagine that the superchargers made for the civic make a whole lot of boost. I could be wrong. I would go with the S.C and the tranny. Does the SI really handle like a minivan? Cause if it does i would go with a full suspension as well.
