Nice plan.

For the calipers consider powerder coating. Put the car on jack stands and remove the calipers. Have then powder coated then put back on.

Otherwise just use Duplicolor brake caliper spray paint.

At 360 horses, you'll be no joke. I would also encourage you to investigate headers and a full catback exhaust system this summer instead of simply a muffler swap.

Most companies have to get access to the car to design and release products. It would be unreasonable to expect a huge aftermarket when most of the orders haven't even been received yet. Give it a few months.
