Yes Definitely! I had the same thought and knew I would eventually want to upgrade the intercooler so might as well do charge pipe/intercooler combo install. Only thing I regret not doing is swapping out the stock oil cooler for a larger one since the bumper was already off the car. That's something I would recommend if you're thinking of stage 2+ along with a high flow cat. Stock muffler should be fine but if you can swing for a higher flow axle back that would be better.
