Probably lose the cams, get a air cooler. Bigger fuel pump, bigger injectors, and you should do a leak down test to make sure your engine can handle the turbo.

A new header for sure. U will need a shorter turbo header. May need to change the cam too.

get different cams or trade someone, you have to replace the headers with turbo manifold and the carbon fiber air intake would get replaced by the turbo piping from the intercooler to the intake manifold. If your not planning on running more then 400hp, 2.5 inch exhaust piping is sufficient
