The intake will work well with an exhaust. Good plugs and wires will help a little, maybe some pulleys...

Almost any cat back will cost a bunch a cash. If you want to keep the cost down, check out ractive & arospeed. The pulleys cost cash too but if your on a budget, that can wait. For plugs i'd go with iridium but there are a bunch of good ones out there.

I don't have experience with aftermarket tachs, but i would think instructions would come with it.
