I would forget the FMIC but that is just me For the power range you want i dunno if a HD will do you right for all future upgrades anyway, i would go with an XD but that is just me also check out prostreetonline.com they have some good prices and deals. And leave the flywheel it is money you don't need to spend.

What kind of driving will you be doing? You might want to do a little bit of research about what suspension set up fits your style.

My bad... I forgot you are rather young and still learning.

GR-2 = crap
AGX = OK
Koni = Good
Revalved Koni/Bilstein = Best

My recommendation would be to call fat cat motorsports and talk to them about what you intend to use the car for... they will set you up.

Or, a cheaper method is to buy off the shelf konis and ground controls, not as fast but pretty damn good for a street car.
