possible final numbers?

anybody know what possible final numbers i could get with full bolt ons? i'm thinking i could hit 200whp with the following mods:
Ford Racing Ram air snorkel
steeda CAI
rear motor mount
tranmission tune
dyno tune
exhaust headers
e85
snorkel delete
ported throttle body

EDIT: list of performance mods i plan on doing (not all necessarily for power)

Stock rating is somewhere around 140-145whp so if you're looking to hit 200whp, you will need some kind of power adder.

i don't think i will, but who knows. there's a a few people running around with 176whp with only an intake, exhaust and e85 and file tune.

What difference does it make? Numbers wise, How you come to the 200 #? As long as it works for you........ I'm good w/ the 151hp in my foci.

That's all you have listed.... so with that list you can expect about 176whp lol

I'll say it again, if you want to hit 200whp, you will need something a bit more drastic.

Here, I'll break it down a little:
cobb short ram intake/Steeda CAI -- Which is it? You can have one or the other...
rear motor mount -- this doesn't really have an effect on power output...
tranmission tune/dyno tune -- these would both be taken care of with a tune, though adjusting transmission parameters won't do anything for power output.
exhaust headers -- Legitimate upgrade, expect less throttle response with more high-end power
e85 -- Just don't travel to a region that doesn't sell e85 I guess.
snorkel delete -- If you get a CAI system, this will be removed anyway...
ported throttle body -- This won't do much but have the potential to increase throttle response.

In the end, most of the power will come from tuning.
In fact, you could skip all of that, just get the tune, and see 12-15hp gains in peak power output.

Autocross, because my springs screwed me over and put me in a different class and i'd like to have more power off the line and be able to actually compete in my class.

i plan on doing all that for all 3 aspects of power; torque, throttle response and overall wheel power.

200 whp is a steep goal if you don't want to invest in turbo / cams / NOS / rocket.

I'm with mac.mogul on this... you need a power adder.

The only MK3 i've seen with 200whp+ is Tom's turbo kit and ST swap from Shade-010
