I don't see a downpipe on your list. Pretty sure that's either highly recommended/pretty much mandatory. Here are Patrick at EQT's comments when I posed some questions....

"To support the vortex turbo, you will need the intercooler, downpipe, intake, ngk racing spark plugs and a high pressure pump upgrade at
a minimum. If you plan on doing ethanol blends, the low pressure fuel
pump would also be needed."

Turbo back exhaust would mean downpipe+catback, so he's covered.
