Go turbo, get supporting mods, THEN get a 3" downpipe. Until then, that oughta be the last of your worries, IMHO.

Cam is going to be your best starting mod that will yield the most potential.

Turbo is the more powerful/expensive route though.

The only down pipe you should worry about is your own when you bend over in front of Adam.

Badge looks much better. I say no to the downpipe also. If anything being NA and putting a 3" downpipe on you'll lose backpressure and in turn lose power.
