If you think you want a few bolt-ons now, then decide later you want to go forced induction, you'll have wasted a lot of money that you won't get back.
For instance, lets say you buy an intake, 2.4 mani and tb. Then you decide to go supercharged...well you wasted a few hundred dollars at least.
Now on the other hand, if you buy a header, dp, and exhaust and decide to go turbo, you wasted money on at least the header. DP and exhaust might be usable for the turbo, but you may have to go larger than that...
It all depends. It's always smart to plan ahead like OBZ said...what are your long term goals?
I myself and looking at intake, header, dp, cat-back, and tune. That's it for power adders. My goal is a mix of fuel economy and a little extra hp. Now down the road (say 3 years or so) I may choose to go S/C. However, I will probably be buying a Solstice/Sky for a fun car so I doubt it. As much as I'd like to and as much fun it would be to have a sleeper.
