Bolt ons...
A good CAI with velocity stacks. 2.5" or 3" doesn't matter. I prefer Z1 CAI with the velocity stack upgrade. OEM upper manifold can only ever be 63-64mm... Whether youre at 3" on the velocity stack or at the throtttlebody, it always drops to 64mm.
Any good single exit (good Y pipe) or dual exhaust (proper X pipe). I prefer Fast Intentions.
Ported and port matched upper manifold, lower manifold, and throttlebodies. No need for 70mm TB's. See first line. It will have a reducer.

PPE headers. Z1 headers are nice too, but I've seen more PPE's make more power. I highly recommend finding an exhaust to quell rasp with the PPE's. If running Z1's, I recommend a resonated testpipe.
Don't mess with underdrive pulleys.
Uprev and Ecutek make same power. Ecutek has far more features available

Going E85 will require at least GTR injectors. You can gain a few hp. Not really worth the cost of injectors and retune.

If anyone is telling you some other ****. They're wrong. If someone is selling you on some overpriced **** because they got duped and bought it, don't listen. If they say straight pipe, they're stupid too.

Bigger isn't always better. Research what makes a good header, about intake plenums, intakes period, and an exhaust that matches your engine.

My setup is the best...there I said it. Don't listen to all the others, they are lying.

In all honesty there are a lot of good options out there, just depends on your taste. My advice would be to do it right and buy quality brands from quality sources to avoid any potential buyer's remorse.

Gears will make a bigger difference than pretty much any of the other bolt ons, but it won't show up on the dyno.
