been keeping an eye out for the SVT header right now I have a OBX header in it (came with the car, not sure if its any good or not)

I have a 2.5 exhaust in it (came with it) I'm going to get a new muffler because this one sounds horrible at high RPMs not natural sounding at all.
I do plan on getting new TB and tune but also want to get new camshafts and valves, but not sure what order to do it in. I imagine the tune will be last, at least it makes sense. I also want new wheels but that comes in the "looks" category.
