Cams and intake manifold

I'm looking into getting cams and intake manifold over this summer. What is the best cams I can use with the stock shortblock 4.6? Any prefered intake manifolds? How much does head porting usually coast? And last but not least how much hp could I pick up from this?

Thanks for the help!

Do you have Gears? Typically most aftermarket cams state to have 3:73 gears or higher?
Trick flow makes great intakes, cams, and heads, but damnit there $$$.
Cant go wrong with comp for cams. Maybe just do cams and get a plenum and TB? Just a thought?

I have 4:10s right now so no worries there. I'm getting a professional products 75mm combo tb/plenum. I have a pair of pi heads I bought for 400 that are rebuilt so I was thinking getting them ported and putting the cams on them before I even touch my current set up.

CMS cams have the best idle sound of them all.
Anderson cams make the most power.

MHS was awesome back when Nick McKinney ran it. He made some wicked cams for the 2v and 4v guys and his headwork was amazing with some serious research behind it, but I think he got overwhelmed and stopped worrying about quality to focus on keeping up with order quantity. He sold it and it went downhill for a bit then kind of leveled out.
It's not bad now, but it's nothing compared to what it used to be.
The big name guys over at Corral used to swear by MHS cams. A lot of them run Anderson now.
I like Crower myself. I dunno why, I just love the variety they have. They offer something like 5 stages so you get exactly what you want.
