Need opinions

In this for opinions for what it's worth. I'm thinking on this time around with this 5.0 I would stay na with a small possibility for centri, but very slim. Here's is what I'm thinking....

Cj Im
Monoblade tb
Sw long tubes with o/r xpipe
Frpp intake
Gt500 axle back
Sct x4 tuned (undecided on tuner)
Basic spring/strut/shock/sway/phb/lca setup
11" wide f14's for the rear

There are a couple things I'm forgetting off the top of my head but this is the basic plan. I'm not planning on going for anything to make the car rev more than it does (limited by the head) now, so would the Cj intake be worth it? I'm not concerned with it not being as much per dollar as other options. I'm just thinking I would like something reliable that I can have fun with. Am I on track? Or is there something that could be changed or added?

Sounds good, maybe just lower control arms and 302 intake manifold but you said you didn't want anything to make it rev higher so what you listed for a N/A car is pretty on point. Although I personally think the GT500s are too quiet but to each his own.

I have the lca's listed and also the cj intake manifold. Abreva tons make it hard to see though.
Mgw shifter is one thing I forgot to add.

If I'm not going to raise the limiter very much past where it is now (safe) will I still see a decent amount of gains? I know the higher you go the better, bet I would like to near 450/400, not that those numbers mean anything but relatively speaking. Also I'm just starting to research but I'm wondering if there is an off the shelf tune available that is feasible till I can find a tuner I feel comfortable with.
