To be safe, put everything on and get the tune at the same time. Do not do exhaust or intake without a tune.

If you are as you say getting the exhaust on today, get a tune asap. Or fit the exhaust when you can afford to do both.

Silicone intake, Turbo back exhaust, fuel pump, tune.

Good tyres and alignment.

well you definitely need a tune after the exhaust especially the latter GD model
the pump and filter can be push out a bit until you save up some fund but will run rich until then

Dont need an intake. People have lost power putting them on. Talk to your tuner about what you need.

Talk to your tuner first.

Don't do the intake without a tune.

Fuel pump can be done anytime.

Everyone moans about exhausts causing problems without a tune. Yet to see anyone grenade a car driving around with an exhaust and no tune for a couple of months. Yes it is better to do it all at once, but not the end of the world.

The stock intake system is good for 220 - 230KW before it becomes a bit restrictive apparently.

*** find it intersting that some bigger HP STI's run the box no porblem

From what Ive read the real issue is it may go into limp mode with the new turbo back exhaust... but like i said, from what ive read...

Why would it go into LIMP?

A/F ratios? EXH temp?

I know they go into "LIMP" when your oil/coolant overheats, detects knock, overboosts, gets high intake temps or high exhaust temps (to preserve the CAT/Mufflers)
