turbo prep?

so i'm eventually putting this turbo I have in my car, I know most of what I need for the turbo but what should I NOT get?

more in the terms of what should I not do to my car right now as someone told me not to get an after market header as I would have to replace it for the turbo later anyhow. what parts can I get in the engine for upgrades without having to replace them later for the turbo? I wanted to do the tusdo exhaust with the LSJ downpipe and shorty header from racing solution? I believe it was. Or is their a header and parts I can get that will work with the turbo later

so far my list went like this for this summer.

1. Tranny and Motor Mounts from turbo tech racing
2. Full exhaust system (tusdo, LSJ downpipe, headers)
3. MRZ pulley + belt
4. Body kit stuff

Don't waste your money on a header and down pipe. You'll need to replace it with a turbo manifold anyways.. You can get a cat-back but make sure its at least 2.5". Everything else in your mod list will be fine. You'll have to sell your K&N though..
