well i will say you are on track. you can make all the power in the world, but without some sticky tires and a good suspension setup, none of that power will transfer. springs, shocks/struts, panhard bar, adjust your camber, and new control arms, maybe some drag radials....

Many people suggest UPR suspension products. while i havent tried them myself, i hear great things about them

Typical gains on the 4.6L with a CAI & good custom tune is about 20-25 RWHP.

There's a TSB for the e-brake cable. I believe it includes a parts list for upgraded components.

Oops... didn't read far enough to see that you fixed it custom style. Sweet.

My recommendation: take a "spirited" ride immediately before you install the CAI & tune, then repeat that ride with the CAI and the lowest octane (or performing) tune, then again with the next higher octane and then again with the highest. You'll see different "behaviors" in each. Running the highest octane or race tunes may not be the best for your style of driving. Just be sure to start off with a tank of octane to match your highest tune.
