Since you're running a chip, you could probably get that reprogrammed to kill the CEL that the race header will cause, and eliminate the need for a MIL eliminator. Even without it, you don't need it...the CEL for a race header generally doesn't affect performance.

Your parts list looks good except for the UDP...IIRC, the AEM Tru Power pulley kit for our cars is an alternator pulley. As far as I know, you're better off going with a single crank pulley, like the Focussport or AFX, or a two piece system like the FC. I'd also reccomend adding some adjustable cam gears to your list...you can get a good power gain out of those, depending on how your car's cam timing is from the factory.

Regarding power figures, you've got (or will have) an intake, full exhaust, UDP, TB, and chip. I'm assuming that you have an MTX, so i'll guess that you're making (or will be making) somewhere not too far north of 120whp.

Good luck!
