Default head/mani/tb/intake/cams

sry about this post..i have some intake stuff in here but here it goes...my plan is to do a head swap to EX. After that is taken care of, will putting a new intake mani/skunk 2 TB and new intake + doing stage 1 (or 2?) cams do alot more for hp gains? Which mod would be better to do after the head swap first?

ALso w/the EX head swap- is a Vafc-2 from apexi all i need to make this work instead of re-flashing the ecu?

reflashing is cleaner because you dont have to splice into computer wires. but then again i do love the way my safc-2 looks ontop the steering column

If you do anything more than a stage 1 cam you will need an EMS. A VAFC2 will not cut it. Power gains... prolly not as much as you'd like, maybe 40 at the crank, real rough estimate.

Reflashing will be tough, have to find a custom guy, no shop will do an OBD2b reflash.
