After getting over the sticker shock, it seems worth it to me. A couple notes on this --
The new UUC street shift kit (they only just started shipping these again last week) is amazing. Precise, short, and very solid. Makes a huge difference, and it got rid of the wobble in the linkage that my previous shifter had (been chasing that for a few months). Anyway, now all I have to do is fix the terminal buzz in the illuminated shift knob the previous owner had installed in the car :).
The Dinan Stage 3 suspension is also really impressive so far. Mid corner bumps are no problem -- it consumes road imperfections far better than my old (tired?) stock suspension did. At-the-limit balance is more neutral. Less plow, and the tail can be coaxed out fairly easily. I might adjust the struts for a bit more dampening, but it's great as is. Forgot to ask them what size the sway bars were set to. I need to get some track time to go 10/10ths on this setup (or even 8/10ths ;), but I'm guessing I won't be disappointed.
And (almost) best of all is that my idle is fixed! No more 1100RPM when warm and 500RPM when very cold. I knew that couldn't have been normal :). Turns out it was just the ICV after all.
So all is good (well, my bank account is a lot lighter :( ), and I'll re-start the car fund over the next few months so I can tackle engine and transmission upgrades; seems to me that it's mechanically spot on, although I'm guessing the clutch will need to be replaced within the next 10K mi.
Pictures and such, soon.
