custom supercharger

Hey guys,
Ive been talking with this guy at a local shop and he is very very good, and i think he has covered everything but i was just wondering what your opinions are and problems i could run into with this set up.

A Large front mount intercooler, a vortech supercharger unit w/ pulley set at 6-7 psi, custom piping, a vortech fmu along with an apex SAFC II for fine tuning, new ignition system, 525 cc injectors, trial header, and tsrm exhaust system.

Is this a good set up? and do i need anything else?
thanks for your help

Change the SAFC to the Power FC.

would an HKS twin power ignition system work? shouldn't you have a custom exhaust since you're boosting?

With FI, 3" piping is recommended.

i think the hks twin power direct fire ignition system is what we are going to use, and that should be more than fine, as for the exhaust, i was unaware that i needed a custom exhaust, do i really need it compared to the tsrm or is it just recomended?

like they said, you need a bigger piping for forced inductions
