my N/A plans....need advice

well like i posted in my intro, i was in the military for 5 yrs...i was apart from my lude for 3yrs...well now that im out, i want to build an N/A strong DD. as for mods i dont have much. as for engine...
*skunk2 cam gears, 60mm apex'i Dunk catback (this is a big boy lol) , dc header, CAI w/ k&n filter, and VAFC I.

i was thinking about bigger TB and intake mani....any suggestions?? as of now i feel like keeping my stock internals....

PS my lude will be going into hibernation for the winter, so ideal time to work on her...

Sounds like a decent setup there, not sure about the Dunk exhaust, unless taht was a typo for Skunk, in which case that would probably smell pretty bad...

Ok, enough of the bad jokes.

The Skunk 2 inlet manifold has had some good things written about it, as has the Euro R mani.

I'd be chasing down an A'Pexi Neo rather than a VAFC, or a Hondata rather than a Neo. The Neo has double the tuning points a VAFC has (8 on each cam against 16 tuning points on each cam, I know which one I'd rather) but with more than just basic bolt ons I think a Hondata would be the way to go.

I would recommend cams, springs, and retainers...Skunk2 or otherwise...It's up to you. The way I see it...You're gonna have the valve cover off installing the gears, might as well go all the way and get it over with.....unless of course you enjoy removing the valve cover more than once.

Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.
