Last dyno I had I was running a 90 octane ethanol free race tune and I still had the stock cats and I put down 210rwhp so it's probably about 10rwhp more now

You could go to 4.10 gears and a limited slip differential.,
It wouldn't necessarily make your car have more horsepower but it gives way more acceleration.
Definately in my near future on my 05 v6

If your looking for just a dyno # 4.10's will make you read lower.
If you have the suspension and tires for them then they will help with acceleration

Yes suspension has a bigger role in getting the power to the ground and staying planted vs tires

Did you notice anything from the accel power pack, plugs, and wires?

Guessing you did them all at the same time

Yeah there's some noticeable changes. Idles smoother and quieter, start ups are quicker and easier, and the power band smoothed out some. Just in general the power the car made at any given rpm from idle to redline was just smoothed out and more consistent really...the actual horsepower gain I didn't really feel anything
