Sounds like great plans.
FYI: The spacer is $100.00 and you can put it on yourself in 2 hours.
More importantly, I was walking the dog thinking about your car and realized I wanted to pass along something- 3" pipes are in no way needed up until you achieve 750HP. 2.5" pipe is good enough until then. My first dual exhaust system was 2.25" up until I hit the mufflers. If you plan on a Windstar upgrade, then 2.5" will be perfect for that and even up to adding a blower & or turbo's. So anyways, you will never reach the HP to ever utilize 3" piping. Eliminate that ASAP and that will fix things. You can also e-mail Steve at VAP in regards to wether he recomend a spacer and a Windstar kit together. You get both from him anyway.
All this is explained below after 20 years of exhaust system development and testing:

I double checked my stuff and I don't know where I got 3" from..... Its actually 2.5" all around. So I'm good I actually am planning to build my engine with a 4.3 stroker and H/C/I, then add a turbo on top of that, but that's not till a loooooong way down the road, good old college likes to suck up all my money.

I love coming in here seeing all the different setups people create and them all sounding cool and the owners loving them. Makes me wish I was 16 again so I could go through it all again. This time though I'd take auto mechanics as a high school class

Good deal. Now, next paycheck get the gears put in. Next paycheck, get a VAP lower intake spacer. Next paycheck, get it dynotuned. THEN, save up for the Windstar or forged Stoker work.
Ha! No problem, right! just go outside to that tree and pluck some bills off.
