Well, you have to put it into perspective...

You can have modifications that'll add decent HP, but you'll still be a 14 second warrior at the track. Are you looking to just do a couple mods to your car and call it a day? Or do you have intentions of building your car into a 12 second street car?

Agreed... If your doing highway runs nitrous will be nice. It won't hurt to start off with the bolt-ons and full exhaust including long tubes. But for highway runs a 3:55 may be enough, but I wouldn't go larger than a 3:73...

Basic bolt-ons will help, but if you are looking for bang for your buck, Nitrous or a PI swap is a must-do..
