I second what nail said, i personally like my set up of Skunk2 intake manifold bolted up to a BBK 62mm throttle body, works quite well. Also, you could get a more agressive cam. I had a Crower stage 1 in my Z6 and it was a nice improvement.

well yeah id say cam first if you're going to go into the head. a crower stage 2 would be sweet for you i think if you plan on staying N/A.

but you cont do, "just a cam", so plan on new valves, springs, retainers, rockers, valve seat grind, gaskets,... gets real spendy real fast

bah. with a crower stage 2 they sell a springs/retainers/valves kit that will work perfectly with the cam. its not that pricey at this point.
