Light performance mods on 08 bullitt

What are simple bolt ons i could do to get a little more power? I was thinking putting a ford performance intake manifold, and side valve covers cleaning the intake hose and replacing filter with a k&n filter and then long tube headers and then finishing with a tune that makes it run effecient with my x pipe and all those mods.

Is this a good plan? Would i experience a decent power gain from all this?

I have 138k on it right now.

The '08-'09 Bullitt came with ~278rwhp/294rwtq stock. How much power do you want?

JLT 3 CAI + CMDPs + UDPs + tune = ~305rwhp/320rwtq
+ LT headers + retune = ~320rwhp/335rwtq
+ NSR cams + retune = ~340-345whp/325-330rwtq
+ FP intake manifold/62mm TB + retune = ~355-360rwhp/325-330rwtq

The fp intake manifold and tb with tune looks promising... so literally just the ford performance intake manifold and throttle body and a tune would get me to 355? Or that on top of all the others

Yes, that on top of the others. Naturally you can skip doing CMCV delete plates if you plan to get the FP intake manifold and dual 62mm throttle body in the future.

do you need to pass an emissions test every year?

Lots of bolt on goodies...

The problem with this is, you'll never be satisfied with the "simple bolt-ons", you'll want more. Instead of spending lots of money for the small stuff, spend some money on the big stuff, i.e. supercharger or turbo's. They'll give you the power you'll want and can easily be upgraded. Just a thought

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

Not necessarily. Some of us are happy just to have a more efficient N/A motor.
We all know that once you add forced induction with an extra 120+rwhp over and above the 300-310rwhp you'd get from simple bolt ons, the expense doesn't stop there as you'd need to make additional upgrades (clutch, tranny, suspension, brakes, cooling system) to cope with it.

yeah, I guess it depends on what the OP considers "decent" . . . maybe he'll stop by again sometime to discuss further, or maybe not . . . ;-)
