Mod Plan

I'm interested in hearing your opinions on planned mods and in what order.
Here's what I have now:
5.0, 5 speed
New Edge 8.8" rear (stock)
CAI, 70mm TB, Typhoon Intake Manifold, E303, Shorty Headers, o/r H, flows, Pro5.0 short throw, 17x9 03/04 Cobras with (soon-to-be) new tires.
I was told the heads are "old iron cobras" with 1.6rr; how can I verify this?
Everything else is stock. I am not looking for supercharger, turbo, or even NOS.. It's my daily driver and can't afford the kits for that anyway haha.

I think my friend and I are going to try advancing the timing on our cars pretty soon and see how it goes.

My throwout bearing is going bad (you can hear it). I'm pretty sure t's a stock clutch. As far as the R&R goes with the bearing, would it be best to go ahead and put in a new upgraded clutch at the same time? LRS has a great all-inclusive kit which caught my eye a while back. If so, I think that'll be the next "mod".

After that, I think I need to upgrade my fuel delivery. Currenty has stock fuel pump, stock 19lbs injectors, and stock mass air meter/sensor. I'm thinking 190lph fuel pump, 24lbs injectors, and BBK's pre-calibrated 76mm Mass Air Meter. Would that be sufficient?

To wrap it up, it needs a good tuning. I'd like to wait until after the fuel delivery upgrade so it only needs to be done once.. the only tuners available for these cars are the ones that need to be sent in. I was originally thinking BAMA/SCT chip, but after all of this, I think it'll have to be dyno tuned to get it right. Even now it still runs kinds weird, but I'm sure it's due to the cam.

After that comes suspension, starting with Strut tower brace, Sub-frame connectors, etc.
Then, probably rebuild the rear with better gears.

Ah, endless possibilities

You can get the 4bank now and straighten out the issue with the cam, you'll need it for a dyno tune too.

That's true.
I'm thinking if I were to do that first, it would make everything run better for now.
Then, I could have them store another tune made for everything plus the fuel delivery upgrades. Right?

Re: Mod Plan

Okay, so I found what I think is a pretty good deal for BBK Mass Air Meter (calibrated for CAI and 30# injectors) and a set of 8 FMS 30# injectors.
Would 30 be good for my application or is that too large?
