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.

yes new seats are something i really want to get as well! going from my bucket seats in my old car to these is no bueno

and the tranny work is def. happening. looking for the tq convertor now. then i need to worry about hooking up with it my friend says im just going to burn rubber at the track so i guess the lca and some nitto 555's would be next? will it be that bad?
