lol supercharger is a bolt on but not a cheap one. Try a upper/lower plenum 1.7 roller rockers pedastel mount go 1.7 if you dont want to mess with the cam. The stock 5.0 cam is pretty good.Headers. Your best bet is to get air IN and OUT as efficently as possible. If i was you id go headers a non cated x-pipe if you can 1.7 RR 65mm tb and spacer upper and lower intake and some bfgoodwrench drag radials and you should have a good car. Also get some subframe connectors and do that torque box mod.

You can get a complete used/rebuilt S/C kit for that price, hell there's a Paxton on ebay for $1900 right now.

If I change the TB and spacer do I have to change the injectors?

if your gonna buy a t/b get at least a 70mm one. if you start modin your car a little more the 65mm will start to hold you back.
