Beginnings of my build plan

Hi everyone! My wife would make me live in my car if I bought a supercharger....ah well. Got a good deal on a new ford racing 62mm twin throttle + intake manifold. Currently have roush CAI w shorty headers. Figure I won’t get a ton of gains but is this a stupid plan? Stuff is still new in box so I can always eBay if I did wrong. I’m a computer geek who’s had fun teaching himself some basic mods but am clueless what I should do if the charger isn’t an option. Let it fly!

I've done basic performance mods (JLT 3 CAI, DIY charge motion delete plates, Steeda underdrive pulleys, Ford Performance X-pipe, Brenspeed 91 octane tune, DSS aluminum driveshaft) with good results (40rwhp & 39rwtq gain).
The Ford Performance intake manifold and 62mm throttle body are best used when you've gone beyond the basic bolt ons that I have by adding long tube headers and performance cams.
Here's some interesting reading for you:

not worth buying, as you've already read. put that money towards suspension and/or new tires. good luck

Lots of bolt on goodies...

Thanks guys. Already have the roush stage 2 suspension package. Couldn’t pass up the deal on the other parts but that’s why there’s eBay! Appreciate you guys helping me out!
