So I imagine you just got the car.
I would do a complete tune up....wires, plugs, cap, rotor, fuel filter, clean the MAF, run your codes, fix any vacuum leaks. I would also bump the timing as that is free hp.
What kind of headers are you slapping on?
H or X off road pipe?

87/88s don't have MAF, they are speed density. Which means all the mods you are doing could potentially make it run funny. First thing I'd do is a MAF conversion.

Actually, if you have an 88 that was a California car, those had mass air from the factory. This was the only way to get a factory mass air car with T tops.
