[200q20v] upgrade advice

I'm considering a turbo / exhaust manifold upgrade (probably the IA
"torquey" junior-RS2 turbo with the IA manifold), but I'm concerned about
the implications this might have on the rest of the car, such as for
instance, the G60 brakes.  I'm very happy with my 200q20v the way it is
now (except a little more power would be nice):  recent G60 conversion,
16" BBS wheels that won't fit any of the brake packages, stock suspension
redone, rebuilt head/valves (got the car after a Subaru dealership tried
to give it a new timing belt, they failed), new stock injectors, basically
stock everything except for the IA3 chip.  But I have a case of fat wallet.

Would running this IA turbo/manifold package overpower the brakes or the
suspension?  I don't feel like going through with another brake conversion
at this time, and buying new wheels, with my relatively brand new G60s
performing well for my needs which don't include tracking the car (I get
that out of my system with motorcycles).
