W/good driver what would be expected whp, wtq, and quarter mile time?

I am getting a few mods for Christmas and I want to know what you guys would think a rough estimate of my whp, tq, and quarter mile times would be. Thanks. The only reason I ask is b/c I don't have any money for dyno time and the California Speedway is only open in the summer.

FR 9mm plug wires
AF/X UDP
Iceman Intake w/add-on duct
FC 65mm throttle body
FocusSport 4-1 Race Header
Trubendz 2.5'' SS flex pipe
Trubendz 2.5'' Borla Cat-back
Steeda Tri-AX/F Short Shifter.

can't really say with those mods and no cam gears... if your lucky, 131-2whp, if your not, 110-115whp. torque, 136wtq high/120wtq low... 1/4... 15.2-15.9

K, that sounds like a more reasonable quarter mile estimate b/c some guy on FJ said I would be a mid to low 16.

Yeah, I'm definately MTX. Couldn't live without it. . What would you suggest next Kickn? I plan on possibly going FI in the future with either a vortec supercharger or Bell Engineering Turbo kit. Would you suggest FR stage 1 or 2 cams? Or Crower Stage 1 or 2 cams?

both the revised stage 2's and FR's are good, i'd choose FR's for the broader curve over crowers though...even though i have crowers, certainly not disapointed with them. next...i seriously say get the damn cam gears and dyno the car, specially with the exhaust, intake being pretty much done, i garuntee it would put down better numbers. being your in cali and need a carb # i say skip the came and do vortech if it gets the # or a big boost JRSC

Well I know about the cam gears and dyno tuning, that's why I didn't mention them. I plan on probably FC cam gears. The only reason why I don't just buy a Vortech is b/c it's 3 grand and cams and cam gears only adds up to about $600 or so and then add a few extra bucks for installation and dyno tuning. Also, I know that I will definately be illegal with a race header so do you think I should get a resonator? Where could I find one? I don't want to get any fix it tickets if I can help it.

Ok, it won't restrict me at all will it? Also, do I have to get it welded in by an exhaust shop or is it kinda like a bolt-on to the exhaust?
