The throttle body isn't gona do much for you until you slap some F/A on it, everything else I highly recommend if you've got the cash flow

the throttle body wont do anything, its not worth the investment. The tune will help especially if its an auto, for 99-04 you already have 3.27 gears so 3.73 wont give you a huge gain (2.5 tenths off your 60 or about what 25hp would do~)

the diff is fine they are nice and a great idea if you are doing gears anyway, but you can get by with an OEM for tlok if the price is better. If you ever plan to take the car to the track it might be wise to go with the Auburn though.

instead of a TB look into underdrive crank pulley as they are not a bad gain for the money, but if you have a system it might be to much of a drain for the lower spinning accessories (alternator).

dont neglect suspension, power is great, but if you cant hook it up its 100% useless.

I am very curious about the nitrous. Im looking at ZEX nitrous, should i get dry or wet? and i was thinking 75 shot but idk. My car is a 2004 v6 3.9l automatic with 128000 miles. the last thing i want to happen is for something to break.

Wet shot, and as I have recently found out the factory tune is suppose to be safe with just throwing the nitrous system on there and not having to mess with anything (reference to a wet shot as it just uses the fuel pump and not the injectors to compensate for fuel use), it's claimed 100shot is ok to use but 75 would be a better idea

Unless you are swapping to an 8.8 that Diff won't work with your car. If you're going to be running any kind of power I would swap over to an 8.8 from a GT anyhow.

I would suggest reading up on Nitrous before you just buy a kit.
This is a good start.

its the rear end from the GT. its bigger and can take more power from my understanding. our cars come stock with a 7.5. the 8.8 bolts directly onto ours i believe, and the axles are 31 spline instead of our 28 spline, so youre gona need it all. As far as pricing i've been in the market for one and havent seen a decently priced one yet. i've seen anywhere from 400 to 800 dollars. you can check your local junkyards for one and get lower than that tho.

Openly 05+ gt's came with 31 spline axles bud, 04 and back the V6 and gt used the same axles just different housings and carriers (99-04,94-98 )
