What does moving to the ARK rotors give you?

I'd upgrade to some different wheels before rotors, so you can actually see the rotors well. What about the TK cf good?

I was thinking about getting the cf hood when I get the turbo kit. Ill prolly just go with the springs. And I have a 2011 sx and like the 17s that are on it

The review on the Kia racing car mentioned that the SX brakes are very good already and didn't require much if any modifications by Kinetic Mortor Sports.

Go with the springs. The brakes are good but I will eventually switch over to some drilled and/or slotted discs only because the thin spokes on my wheels show how ugly the small discs and calipers are. If you're keeping the stock wheels you can't really see them that well so you should be fine.

do springs and exhaust first. brakes are pointless in my opinion because A. our cars arent that fast B. Im not racing autocross C. stock ones have plenty of stopping power

.02, springs. Might as well make it good in the twisties. Brakes would be my second, though I would save-up for a pads and rotors and install 'em at once.

If and when a reprogrammer is available that will up my hp to over 200 then I will invest in exhaust and intake. Till then stock is fine.
