Default what should i start to look at?

i have

315/35 Nitto 555 R Extremes
4.10 Gears
Steeda Underdrive pullies
K&N FIPK
BBK Off-road x-pipe
SLP Loudmouth I catback
Diablosport Predator Tuner


what should i do next. if i get headers they would be shorties so it seems like a waste of money. also if i get a TB/Plenum Combo will I really see the 20 HP it states? i have my suspension under control with parts on the way but I'm wondering if I should dip into ignition or something of that part. I'd love to get a cam but for the autos it seems like it'll be a bitch with purchasing other parts and overall it seem like it'll cost alot of money. I'm looking between the 400-800 dollar range including installation if its something I can't install myself.

if your not afraid to crack it i would say cams tb/plenum combo might get only 5-9 rwhp with your setup dont do just tb though and especially a 75mm you will actually lose on the low end

M responded really good to the 75 mm TB & plenum combo from accufab. You r not going to get 20 horses no way. That kind of gain is for forced induction. But it'll give you a couple of horses and better throtle response. I loved what it did to mine. The cams it depends what you r thinking of doing with your stang in the future. If you think of going the route of forced induction anything else you do right now is preatty much a waste of money. Maybe upgrade your brakes.

With what he said, you would be able to rock and roll! Buy a good setup; Window switch, WOT switch, etc. Get it tuned and your set. About a grand sounds average as well. My two cents.
