Normally the kits come pretty complete it seems. But yea a clutch would be good. And probably some erection suppressant lol

Of course, all that power is useless if you can't put it to the ground. I'd start with suspension upgrades (if you haven't already done them) like rear UCA/LCA, Panhard bar if you're lowering more that 1-1/2"; then a short shifter, yada, yada, yada. Oh yeah, modding is not for the faint of heart or for those with shallow pockets! Seriously though, IMHO,make a plan for what you want the car to do (street/strip, autocross, etc.), start with the right suspension and go on from there.

Usually a SC kit includes all the necessary stuff to install and upgrade the air fuel system. You need better tires first of all because the stockers cant handle the power and won't stick. I also did control arms, springs, relocation brackets for the control arms, adjustable shocks and on and on but you don't need all that. I do recommend control arms and springs, the stock control arm bushings will wear out with a blower. You don't need a a forged bottom end (yet) as long as you stay at low boost (6-10 psi). I have been running 9 psi @ ~500whp for almost 4 years and 60K+ miles and am still on the stock bottom end. Self control is a must
As far as gas milage I get about 15 in the city and up to 21 hyw
