The peak HP gain from a TB/plenum is not that much, but there's a lot more to an engine's overall perfromance than peak HP...

A 70mm (or 75 mm, but 70 is fine for n/a--click here fore more) TB and aftermarket plenum will let your engine pull strongly right up to the rev-limiter, and also add a noticable power gain at WOT in the 3500 to 5000 rpm range.

I would go with the tranny work- 3200 stall converter, jmod or shift kit, and most defenitely tranny oil cooler.

but for the most part, i think you are on the right track with a good list and combinations that i think compliment each other.
