Depends on your definition of worthwhile.
RAISS: yes
speedo: if you like it.
tri-y's: yes.
swaybars: if accompanied by rear lower crontrol arms, yes.
extended control arms: debatable, but if for appearance probably yes.
fuel rail covers: depends, they can be tricky to get done right if it's your first time, but improve the engine bay a whole lot without homeplate.
valve covers: if no clearance issues, yes.
halo lights: the comple streetlights package, yes. Just trim rings, IMO no, but to each his own. If that's the look you want, then be happy with it.
programmer: depends what kind, but probably.

If you're getting a whole streetlights package, then yes, they will improve your lighting (though they are expensive, so some may argue thy're not worth the price charged.) If just the halo ring, that's for appearance only and your call.

The rear lower control arms are the same thing as the hotchkis extend kit- just make sure you get adjustable upper control arms at the same time. I imagine the "kit" would come with both, but don't let someone sell you just the lowers if they're extended.

I'm pretty sure (like 95% sure) the engine bay brace does not fit with the raiss. I am 100% positive the bay brace does absolutely nothing for increased handling/performance though, so I know which one I would pick.

Heads, cam and throttle body. Do your research, especially if you will need to pass CA smog some day. I wouldn't recommend a 58mm TB or the msd box- the stock stuff is fine until you start making alot of power. Cap wires and plugs, most people would recommend ACDelco, though you can get good aftermarket wires or plugs.

As far as doing the work goes, does wherever you're stationed have a rec facility where you can rent a lift and air tools? If so, this stuff is pretty easy- maybe not the heads and cam part though. You need to do more research before you head that route though.

Just forget the brace- it's worthless. Head over the border (MX or NV) and grab a piece instead, your money would be better spent.
