All good parts except the MSD crap. Put stock igntion back on and you should make around 150-160. I would also consider using an Exedy Stage 1 clutch (that ACT will be STIFF), and a Quaife LSD (some people recommend OBX, even me before, but after reading around a bit I've decided doing it right the first timeis the way to go). Make sure you have a Z6 or Y8 transmission as well (Z6 preferably). Also, what are you using for tuning?

And just fyi, you have only one cam gear, one camshaft, and one header.
