be careful with aftermarket throttle bodies as the have been very problematic. you might look into ID Fuel injectors a those are the best on the market. What are your goals

In my opinion, screw the intake manifold you should just go full shaker. You'd get much better gains. Also, +1 on TBs being sketch, I've seen lots of people have problems.

It's not a bad list if you are willing to trade significant low end torque loss for a modest HP gain at redline. Replace the BBK TB with a GT500 or FRPP TB for reliability and don't bother with bigger injectors. The factory injectors will supply all the fuel you need for a N/A build on the stock bottom end. Don't forget to make it exhale better too. Even shorty headers will help a little when you open up the intake that much.

Be aware, in CO you can expect significant torque loss below ~3500rpm. We just don't have the ambient barometric pressure to get any kind of intake velocity going into the cylinders. Look through my sig for a similar mod list. All of the items on your list are intended for high rpm HP. Great at the track, but not so much for a daily driver. I have posted my before and after dyno results a few times in the forum. My HP curve climbs all the way to redline, but I lost over 50ft/lbs below 3500. Fifth gear is virtually useless in my car.
