also..., w/ the exhaust, mufflers, and headers, how much total HP at the wheels should i be looking at? unfortunately i haven't had my car dynoed yet.

sorry for so many questions in a first post...

thx in advance and srry for any typoes

*EDIT* btw, i eventually want to get it over 300hp, not sure if it will be w/ the stock motor or not, cuz my dad has a 289 that is in good shape lying around. when i move out in a year i will see if i can convert it to a manual easy nuff, but before that i'll drop in some 3.73 gears.
hp is gonna' depend on the diameter of the catback.

IF you're gonna' get the K&N, it'll be worthless when you get your CAI.

You can do the chip/CAI/UDPs, but if you want anywhere near 300 hp, you're going to need a P&P and a cam.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
