The intakes, programmers, TB spacers, and such isn't going to provide a whole lot of seat of the pants improvements in power. it may have a placebo effect just because you hoped for the cash you just dropped you'd get something out of it. It has been my experience that this isn't the case.

If you want to squeeze more out of what you already have gears is going to be your best bang for the buck. While it won't give more power it will better use the power you already have.
