need mod opinions

My buddy just got a basically stock 01 GT 5 spd.... What would be more cost effective?
Cams, headers, intake, gears, tune and nos or getting a m112 setup from a 02-04 cobra? This is his daily driver and he wants decent gas mileage but quite a bit more hp. Now I know those two don't go hand in hand but what do you guys think? Any other mods or help is appreciated!

Intake, shifter, tune, gears, nitrous. Gotta be careful with the spray though. Don't go over a 100 shot on a stock motor. If he's going to run it at the track, TIRES! Gears won't kill his MPG too much if he keeps it off the highway. A tuner set for low octane will bump his mileage and if he wants fast, go fill with 93 and swap to the race tune.

Gears will knock off about a full sec ET if you have an air silencer take it off you'll hear the air going into to intake sound cool too

I wouldn't say a full second, a few tenths though.
