As I'm sure you have read before, gauges before mods. Intake and exhaust you will be fine. But when you start your fueling mods, you'll need them. I would definatly do a Tymar intake, or homemade Tymar, and also one of his downpipes. As for a chip, I highly recommend DP-Tuner. Jody is a super nice guy and great to deal with. Or Tony Wildman, I haven't dealt with him, but I've read tons about him and not one bad word was said. They are both aces in their field. You could always start with a superchip tuner like I did, but you will soon realize the benifit of switch on the fly tuning. But it's always a good starter. Then the 10k mod, which I used with the superchip, but you won't need with a DP or TW chip. They program it in. FPR shim, gutted EBPV, then injectors, and bigger HPOP. etc etc. That should get you going, hope that helps.
