Your MAF should be 5mm bigger than you TB (at least).
Gasket match the intake if you feel up to it.
CAI with conical filter (washable)

I guess a budget/goal would help. But suspension would be the way to go.

Pitch the E7's. if your on a budget pick up a set of GT40's or GT40p heads to replace the E7's. they'd be a great combo with the intake.

I'm hoping to get a set of gt40 or GT40p heads what's the difference between then 2? Does one flow more than the other

The difference is in the orientation of the spark plug. GT40P heads need different headers.

I currently have BBK headers would that make clearance any better?

BBK longtubes barely clear P heads, not sure about the shorties. GT40s came on early 5.0 explorers and Cobras, if I was going to do it again I'd just hold out for a set of the regular GT40s to avoid any issues. As far as performance, you'll hear from some that the P heads are better but honestly they are pretty much identical as far as performance.

People say that the redesigned spark plug position makes for a more complete burn/better flame front. As scotty said, it's all the same

I know of a couple guys who have BBK shorties with their p heads and they work fine. The only challenge is one cylinder is a pain to change the spark plug (I forget which) and you'll need spark plug wires with straight boots for them due to the different plug angle and location in relation to the headers. If you find a good used set, I recommend doing research on the differences between the two before you go to look at them. Not everyone knows and they'll just list them as gt40. There's a great video on YouTube on identification and what markings to look for, that way you know what to look for and what you're looking at.... Three bar stamp vs. four bar and so on.

Im running bbk shorties with my p heads. Using msd street fire plug wires with straght boots that bend how I need them to. The #7 cylinder is the pain and will require a small 90 boot and a sleeve to keep it from burning up. I should have some pics of it in my album.

Smaller combustion chamber and smaller exhaust valve are the other differences the p heads have.

Yeah those MSD wires with the bendable plug boots are pretty much the only MSD thing I'd buy these days and a must have for the P heads. P exhaust valves are 1.46, regular GT40 heads are 1.54 IIRC.
