Default Mods for the car

So ive had the Mustang for 2 years in May. Its a GT, and has nothing on the performance side of life.

Its getting close to bonus time, and im looking at doing the following, please let me know if ive missed something or shouldnt do something or if i should do something differently.

Ford Racing Hot Rod Performance Camshafts
C&L CAI and SF3 Tuner
Ford Racing 4.10 Gears
Kooks Header and Catted X-pipe Combo
Hurst Competition Plus Shifter - I had one in hte V6 and loved it! So i figured what the hell!

Thoughts?

I strongly recommend upgraded control arms, adjustable panhard bar, and good sticky tires if you don't already have them. Good traction makes a huge improvement on these cars!
