Do the free mods the Grey wire and remove the air box snorkel. Since I am 210lbs I cannot reccomend highly enough that you save the money and have the suspension resprung and revalved by someone who knows what they are doing. You will have more energy at the end of the race and your body will not HURT as bad.
1. ditch the pipe!!!! get the suspension setup properly first. Much better use of your cash.
2. I'm waiting for an '03 exhaust cam to arrive for my 400. It was $175 with shipping hereColumbus Cycle Shop
Seriously forget the pipe and go with these first.

Other must do's -
Make sure your runnin' HD Tubes, a flat in a race will piss you off
Check your master link, a broken chain will also piss you off.
Any simple single point of failure is not excusable! Of course things will happen but if you pay attention to the little simple things that can end your day and make sure they are in good working order before the race your chances of finishing and ultimately winning are alot better

Dave Lampmann at Full Circle Cycle
He's also a HS MXer I took my ride in when I was at FT. Hood I'm sure you can UPS or FedEX yours in if you want.

600 seems a little high, but 300 seems low to me. Dave at FCC did mine for about 425 which included new shock and fork springs,a complete shock rebuild, new Frok seals, adn setting up the sag. He gave me a 10% discount for military so I guess reg price was about 475. But it did include new spring which you might not need. Shop around a little and check shipping rates good luck!!
I forgot.... he lowered my bike 1.5" too so that was a little more work included in the 425 so maybe 300-400 is a good number. Whatever you do make sure you can get it fined tuned at no charge. a really good tuner will even go to the track/trail with you and make sure you're good to go.

I just re-sprung my self, the installation was easy, it only cost me $200.00 and the sprig rate decision was made easy with Race Tech's calculator. I did not mess with any valving but I went to a 5W in the forks.
It is by far the best $200 I ever spent on my bike
