2004 GT How to make more power

I just bought a 2004 GT I have a list of items that has already been done to the car, I was thinking about Changing out the heads and the cams, I want to stay naturally aspirated because this car is going to be my daily driver, But im also looking into getting 300-400HP Depending on what step I need to take next to create the power that I want, so far done to the car I have: Bassani CatBack exhaust with X-Pipe, K&N Cold Air Intake, recently cleaned and re-oiled, Diablosport Predator Tuner.

Im soon going to be installing STEEDA underdrive pulleys, BBK 78mm Throttle Body with spacer, and edelbrock victor jr. Intake manifold. From there im not sure in which direction to go for more power. Anyone have any suggestions???

let me just say from personal experiance. dont worry about the numbers. all you should care about is that its more fun to drive. i have seen several people dissapionted with the power their car is making, and fail to see that they made their car a joy to drive in the process. just my $.02.

98 GT vert.-mostly stock
98 SVT contour - DD

Leave out the TB spacer Are you looking to make 300-400 hp to the wheels? or at the crank?

Why not just put on a Vortech or a Procharger and get 400rwhp and be happy and call it a day that way you don't have to mess with taking you're whole engine apart.
