  1. A slightly longer bridle and a slightly larger pilot chute is recommended, but many wingsuit fliers use their standard equipment without any problem at all. Certainly, if you are just starting out, there's no point spending money on modifications until you know you like it. You will though! Hackeys are not ideal, but again, fine for starting out. Just make sure you forcefully throw it out on deployment and you will be fine. Your canopy is great, and as it is quite docile, no need to make cut-ins (dynamic corners) on your container. Only slight issue is that you don't have that many jumps. Do you know a wingsuit instructor or even an experienced wingsuit flyer who can give you some coaching and advice before you make your first jump?
