02 V6 Exhaust Swap / Tuning Questions (

I just bought a 02 V6 and I want a true dual exhaust, there is also a slight manifold leak from a gasket so I thought I might as well get new headers too.

For headers I'm looking at BBK shorty's : http://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-shorty-headers-9904v6.html
Mid pipes : Pypes catted xpipes: http://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-9604-v6-cattedxpipe.html
Catback - Pype bomb GT catbacks : http://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-bomb-catback-9804gt.html

And yes because of the new mid pipes it does say to get a GT catback.

And also a SR cold air intake : http://www.americanmuscle.com/muv6coairins.html

So I talked to an expert of americanmuscle about if the system should work well together and if I needed a tune, he told me a tune would be recommended to get the real benefits of the mods I just put on. So he sends me a Bama tune which is $375, what should be my point of attack.
