a nice tune and plugs is all you "really" need. If you want to up the power a lot you will need gt500 fuel pumps and bigger injectors.

Nice to have but optional.. Boost gauge, fuel pressure gauge, air fuel ratio wideband gauge

Depending on power you are putting down, new clutch.

Only other necessity I can think of is getting the S/C powder-coated pink before it goes on......that's what I'm going to do to mine.

Not necessary, but the enhanced scavenging with equal length runners will give HUGE gains with the supercharger. If you're modifying the intake side of the engine, its a good idea to work the exhaust side to keep things balanced.
