Ken's Camaro

Hi everyone! I will be waiting 3-4 more weeks to pick up my Blk/Blk 2SS/RS 6M, but it is almost time to start ordering parts. The car will be my daily driver except in very bad weather conditions and will occasionally see the drag strip. I'll give a list of my planned modifications and I'm hoping you can let me know if I'm overlooking anything or potentially making any bad decisions. I appreciate all the advice/opinions and I'll post pictures once I'm able to start putting the car together, hopefully all will be done before the new year.

Performance:
Kooks 1 3/4 FULL Exhaust
Roto-Fab Intake/ Possibly ADM Street or CAI...?
MTI Shifter/ Possibly MGW...?
Eibach Drop Springs
BMR Trailing Arms and Adjustable Toe Rods
Diablo Trinity

I considered and decided against spark plugs, underdrive pulley, and 160 deg T-Stat.

Still considering ADM Powder Coated Calipers and stainless steel brake lines.


Cosmetic:
Black Billet Front and Rear Bowties
Black Billet SS Badges to replace "Camaro" on fenders
Black Billet Side Vent Inserts
35% Tints all around (not windshield)
Black or Carbon Fiber Tail Light Bezels

Considered the Oracle Multi-Colored Halo Kit but I don't want to modify more wiring than necessary.

Considering Subwoofer/Amp install and stealth radar/laser package, possibly escort.

I live near Chicago and should also purchase snow tires with rims even though it will seriousely cut into my budget, I could get Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60's with 18" O.Z. Ultraleggera Black wheels for $1844 through tirerack, is it worth the $268 for TPMS Sensors?

I feel like I'm forgetting things but this will have to do for now. Thank you all again for any ideas/advice/opinions!!
