    Delete the throttlebody and the intake. Buy long tubes if your state is not emissions crazy. The intake would be good if you plan on going F.I. a little later and the throttle body is more headaches than it's worth.

    +1. Long tubes or nothing. You'll also need the corresponding x or h pipe.
    Skip the TB and intake.

    Also, you don't want to hear this but you could just save up for an SC. You will still be pretty slow with these mods.

    x2 on the just saving up for a supercharger, unless you're wanting to keep in N/A, in which case, get the long tubes.

    As everyone else has said, if your upgrading your headers get long tubes.
