You are better off just to get a K&N filter. Dyno results show that the CAI and Ram-Air intakes only net 1-3hp over a decent air filter.

I dont see any mention of suspension in there. Have you already done that? If not, it would be the first thing I do.

Do you know what shocks are on it? Eibachs are notoriously unreliable and stock shocks with lowering springs usually results in blown shocks lol.

Next step I would say is exhaust and air filter.

Also, depending on what your stereo setup is, if you have the audiophile package, you might consider replacing your headunit to an aftermarket pioneer/kenwood unit. The factory 6-disk is prettmuch garbage, upgrading it does wonders for the quality of the sound.
